Netacea, the bot detection and mitigation specialist, today announced it has received the highest score in the Bot Detection criterion in The Forrester Wave™: Bot Management, Q2 2022 report.
Forrester, a leading research organisation that provides advice on existing and emerging technology, has identified Netacea as a Strong Performer in its 2022 evaluation of the bot management market, despite being “among the smallest vendors in this Forrester Wave.” Netacea also received the highest possible score for Threat Research.
The report evaluated 15 top vendors in bot management and notes that Netacea “…consistently punches above its weight in thought leadership and research…” The report found that Netacea, which recently received $12 million in Series A funding, had consistent investment into threat research and data science and “Reference customers applauded the product’s effectiveness and the ‘very attentive’ support team…”
The report, authored by Sandy Carielli, Forrester Principal Analyst, states: “Netacea has made major investments in threat research and data science and gives its delivery team dedicated “blue sky” time to advance new ideas. The vendor exhibits discipline with its go-to-market and execution…
“Reference customers applauded the product’s effectiveness and the “very attentive” support team: “It’s plain to see it working. I like the way the ML approach adjusts to catch new attacks.””
Jeremy Gidlow, Netacea CEO and co-founder said: “We are thrilled with the result of the evaluation and our position in the bot management market. We believe The Forrester Wave™ results reflect the strength of our technology offering and validates our decision to take a different approach to the bot challenge; with particular reference to our detection approach and machine learning model usage and training. To us, this also shows how Netacea truly is an underdog in the bot management landscape as we contend with some providers over twice our size. We are in an excellent position to continue growing our presence in North America as well as our partner programme.”
