Variti partners with Kx to support users seeking bot protection worldwide

Variti – a global provider of user focused bot management solutions and Kx, the world’s fastest streaming analytics platform, have partnered to provide an enhanced offering to users seeking bot protection worldwide. Kx will underpin Variti’s platform, enabling the identification and mitigation of even the most sophisticated automated cyber threats in real time, without compromising user experience.

Variti supports businesses across various industries with its Active Bot Protection– technology based on multi-dimensional traffic analysis in real time. Using this approach, Variti detects malicious activity and mitigates cyber attacks while keeping legitimate traffic undisturbed. Powered by the world’s fastest time-series database, kdb+, the Kx Streaming Analytics Platform will enable the processing of high levels of traffic data to accumulate behavioural patterns and statistics for Variti’s machine learning algorithms. This process delivers top level precision when identifying bots and emulator signatures.

Kdb+ is known across industries for its speed, scalability, and performance. By integrating Kx with Variti’s Active Bot Protection technology, businesses can solve their security challenges with much higher speed and precision.Through this partnership, Kx strengthens Variti’s customers ability to prevent malicious bot activity as well as get a true picture of all their websites, mobile and IoT apps, and API transactions.

The UK’s National Crime Agency named DDoS attacks alongside ransomware as the leading threat for businesses. In fact, 71% of security professionals have noticed an increase in security threats or attacks since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, according to a CheckPoint survey. Bot traffic Variti has filtered increased 12 times between February (the start of the pandemic) and April 2020. To compare, a seasonal Christmas surge in bot traffic (typically, the period with an overwhelming surge in bot traffic) was only 30%.

Due to these trends, the global botnet detection market has witnessed continuous growth in the past few years. According to the Data Bridge overview, the market is being projected to grow at a CAGR of 43.6% until 2025 due to stiff competition from the new players. With Kx solutions, Variti is addressing this market with cutting-edge competitive cybersecurity tools allowing businesses to quickly get access to real-time security solutions for any tech environment, including complex architectures.

Konstantin Kamenetsky, CEO at Variti, said: “Our customers have a strong demand for reliable and fast databases. Bot mitigation, based on intelligent solutions, plays a critical role for cybersecurity, and we are pleased to partner with Kx to power our technology with even more real-time capabilities.”

Paul Hollway, Global Head of Partnerships at Kx, commented: “The combination of the two real-time services creates a single solution that accelerates market players’ ability to enforce cybersecurity. Businesses deploying the Variti and Kx solutions together stand to gain unprecedented speed to prevent malicious bot activity.”

In combining the two real-time services, it creates a single solution that allows users to build sophisticated bot mitigation strategies, which in turn means more significant benefits for both partners and users in dealing with fast-moving cybersecurity challenges.
