About InfiSecure


Problem: More than 50% of all web traffic is generated by bots. Without a bot mitigation strategy, all online businesses are bound to suffer from a myriad of online frauds. The frauds are too many and have a huge impact on business. Moreover, it is not cost-effective to build an in-house solution to tackle the bot menace.

InfiSecure uses its advanced bot detection systems to process every hit a website gets and protect the website in real-time.
