Who do you trust?

It is positive since we are talking about the best product on the market for this category. It is not comparable with others: you can easily monitor (in real time) what is happening on your website and decide what trusts and what blocks.

Pros

You have visibility and control over who is accessing your website/application. Thanks to the Web Security Analytics view, in real-time, you can see and evaluate the traffic on your properties, and analyze eventually BOT accessing your websites. Leveraging the automatic categorization of the BOT done by the product (automatic and always updated), you can easily block specific groups avoiding useless traffic on your website. At the same time, thanks to the possibility to personalize the configuration, you can allow/block specific requests based on some parameters (URL, User Agent, cookie...). With BOT Manager, you are protected from BOTS launching credential stuffing attacks, exploiting logic vulnerabilities, and scraping content and pricing information.

Cons

I do not see cons to the product. The only limit is that you can use the product only if your website is served by Akamai CDN. Bot Manager cannot be configured on websites not delivered via Akamai.

Reasons for choosing Bot Manager

There is no comparison. If you need the top product, you will choose Akamai Bot Manager.
