AWS Users Now Have Access to F5’s AI-Driven Bot Protection

F5 Networks

Every time a mitigation is put in place to address a bot problem, they mutate, says F5. Through an “easy to deploy” connector, AWS users using Amazon CloudFront now have access to F5’s AI-driven bot protection. It would help organizations adapt to changes in the bot attack patterns, putting them one step ahead.

By utilizing this pre-built link to F5 Distributed Cloud Bot Defense, clients of Amazon CloudFront would now have access to one of the most precise bot detection tools available. They would receive effective bot mitigation with low false positive rates by combining extensive signal analysis, AI, and human domain experience.

“The bot problem is ongoing and every time we have a mitigation in place, they mutate. F5 keeps us a step ahead by constantly adapting to changes in the bot attack patterns,” said Kamal Kalra, Director of Operations for e-commerce firm VegNonVeg, a company currently uses F5 Distributed Cloud Bot Defense on AWS. “We knew we had bot traffic, but F5 helped us see how much of our traffic was from bots and how it was affecting us. By mitigating these bots, without impacting customers, they’ve helped us bring down infrastructure costs significantly.”

“As organizations continue launching major workloads and business processes in an ever-expanding cloud environment, they need security solutions better integrated into their technology stack, and they need mitigations to be more intelligent and automated to protect their growing attack surface,” said Haiyan Song, Executive Vice President, Security and Distributed Cloud, F5. “That is exactly what our Bot Defense service does for AWS customers with this integrated offer.”

Layered Security

F5 Distributed Cloud Bot Defense would offer crucial functionality for Amazon CloudFront, stopping crippling automated bot attacks while maintaining access for users and the beneficial bots that support their business. These functions include preventing Account Takeover (ATO), credential stuffing, inventory hoarding, and gift card cracking.

Users would also be able to boost security for their applications as a consequence without increasing friction. Additionally, they can prevent fraud and abuse from occurring when false accounts are made or legitimate accounts are exploited for fraudulent purposes. Organizations can not only better protect their brand, but they can also give end users secured, smooth, and uptime-improving experiences with their applications.

“At AWS, we are customer-obsessed, therefore it is critical that we provide customers with secure, reliable, performant, and scalable solutions,” said Nishit Sawhney, Director of Product Management for Amazon CloudFront at AWS. “ISVs like F5 provide enhanced security services in areas like bot management that, when combined with Amazon CloudFront, provide our customers a layered security solution.”
