Enabling Bot IP Shield
Bot IP Shield is an add-on feature from Webscale that allows you to protect your application from known attack sources. Webscale has partnered with Webroot’s BrightCloud® IP Reputation Service to maintain IP reputation data that is updated every 5 minutes to reflect the latest attack sources.
After enabling this feature, configure shielding for the application that you want to protect. Then, create Web Controls to handle traffic from sources that you consider a threat. For example, you could configure the Web Control to deny requests from a request IP if it is a known threat.
NoteContact support for assistance when enabling this feature.
