Bot management involves identifying and blocking some bots from a website or application, while still allowing access to other bots. Bot management refers to blocking undesired or malicious Internet bot traffic while still allowing useful bots to access web properties. Bot management accomplishes this by detecting bot activity, discerning between desirable and undesirable bot behavior, and identifying the sources of the undesirable activity.
Bot management is necessary because bots, if left unchecked, can cause massive problems for web properties. Learn more in the Cloudflare Learning Center.
