Announcing AWS WAF Bot Control for visibility and control over common and pervasive bots

AWS WAF announces the launch of AWS WAF Bot Control, which gives you visibility and control over common and pervasive bots that consume excess resources, skew metrics, cause downtime, or perform other undesired activities. With Bot Control, you can easily monitor, block, or rate-limit pervasive bots, such as scrapers, scanners, and crawlers, or you can allow common bots, such as status monitors and search engines. You can add the Bot Control managed rule group alongside other Managed Rules for WAF or your own custom WAF rules to protect your applications.
