What kind of telemetry is collected from clients via the PerimeterX Sensor?

The PerimeterX Sensor is a JS code snippet that is added to your website or application. It collects and sends hundreds of anonymized indicators such as user interactions including mouse movements, clicks and keystroke speed, as well as device behavior such as kind of device, battery level, and environment details such as window size, fonts and extensions. These indicators are an essential part of determining whether or not activity on your website or application is malicious. No personally identifiable information is collected in this process.

Can we integrate our single-sign on solution with PerimeterX Console access?

Yes, you can. PerimeterX cloud-native products integrate with industry-leading platforms so you can safeguard your digital business using your existing best of breed technology infrastructure. See the full list of SSO Integrations.

Can data from our Bot Defender Portal integrate with our SIEM?

Yes. Bot Defender includes several out of the box and customizable dashboards that help cybersecurity teams understand and respond to bot threats on their web applications. Being a cloud-native platform, Bot Defender also has the ability to stream logs to third-party solutions like a SIEM. Learn more about SIEM integration.

How can we manage roles and permissions for users?

Users are managed from Platform Settings > Users. You can add as many users as needed. The user's role and privileges are set when adding a new user. This role determines the data they can see and the actions they can perform.

What’s the difference between a simulated block and an active block?

When PerimeterX Bot Defender is in Monitor Mode it will display simulated blocks as dotted red lines in the console dashboard. This represents traffic that PerimeterX can and will block in the case of a malicious request. An active block is the malicious bot traffic that PerimeterX is actively blocking. Active blocks are displayed as a solid red line in the console dashboard.
