Overview

Bot Manager relies on the simple premise that bots are not all created equal. Many bots play a legitimate role in your online business strategy. Others harm your business by reducing competitive advantage, getting between you and your customers, or committing fraud. Bot Manager provides a flexible framework to manage bot traffic based on the needs of your business - to better engage with your customers, improve your security posture, and control the traffic coming to your website every day.

The Shape technology platform, covered by 50+ patents, stops automated fraud and other attacks on web and mobile applications, including credential stuffing, account takeover, scraping, and unauthorized aggregation. Shape is one of the largest processors of login traffic in the world, protects more than 1.3 billion user accounts, and prevented more than $1 billion in fraud losses last year.

Shape solutions leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning, among other technologies, to accurately determine in real-time if an application request is from a fraudulent source, and if so, effectively mitigate. As soon as new countermeasures are deployed, 5%-10% of attackers will typically attempt to retool and start a new attack. Shape solutions adapt and maintain full efficacy even as attackers evolve.

The world's leading banks, airlines, retailers, hotel chains, and federal agencies rely on Shape as their primary line of defense against sophisticated cybercrime.

Shape Solutions:

Shape AI Fraud Engine (SAFE): SAFE connects context across different browsers and devices used by the same user, as well as observations from across Shape’s entire network. This allows Shape's AI engine to drive down fraud each month as its engine consumes more data.

F5 Device ID+: A real-time and precise device identifier using advanced signal collection and machine learning to assign a unique fingerprint to each device visiting your site. Simple deployment with immediate results for security, networking, and fraud. Better understand the unique devices visiting your applications.

Shape Enterprise Defense: Invisibly protect every application from attack, fraud, and abuse. Defending the world's largest companies, Shape knows whether a request is bot or human driven and if the intent is malicious or benign. This allows Shape to prevent fraud in real-time; manage aggregated and partner access to applications and provide new data for better customer insights.

Shape was recognized by Cybercrime Magazine as one of the Hot 150 Cybersecurity companies in 2019 and CB Insights 2019 AI 100 most promising artificial intelligence startups across the globe.
