IBM is assisting cyber-security firm ShieldSquare to expand its business presence and improve customer experience.

Bangalore, India-based ShieldSquare is expanding its reach across the globe to meet the customer requirements in e-commerce and mobile verticals.

Bots are becoming a nightmare for online business and they are estimated to represent around 61.5 percent of total internet traffic.

Competitors and fraudsters engage in automated attacks using bots to steal the content, price information, engage in form spamming and other forms of bot abuse. To address this issue, ShieldSquare helps online businesses differentiate between human and non-human traffic (bots) on websites and mobile applications.

According to a write-up published in, there are not much startups working in the space of bot prevention. One major competitor for ShieldSquare is Distil Networks, which monitors and filters traffic at the network level using DNS based routing.

On the other hand, ShieldSquare works without the need for DNS redirection.  It uses an API-based approach to protect website from bots, ensuring data privacy and seamless integration with the existing infrastructure.

The company promises that its real-time protection will guard online businesses from web scraping, form spam and various kinds of bot abuses.

According to ShieldSquare, its cloud engine processes billions of Page Views on a monthly basis to unearth malicious bot traffic originating across the globe.

Trusted by leading companies like Axel Springer Group, Purch across 68 countries, ShieldSquare was encouraged by IBM-GEP program, which provides qualified start-ups with go-to-market support, business mentorship, services, discounts, technical guidance and networking opportunities needed to quickly bring your solution to market.
