Compare Netacea and Kasada

Detection Methods
Netacea uses machine learning to identify the intent of every request in parallel, grouping malicious traffic together to block the whole attack.
Kasada ignores historical attack data in favor of combining client signal analysis with server-side anomaly detection.
Robustness Against Bypass
Our server-side technology is invisible to adversaries and impossible to bypass – We have never found evidence of being detected.
Kasada’s SDKs are exposed to adversaries, who de-obfuscate detection signals and bypass bot protection, forcing Kasada to constantly change their code.
UX Impact
Netacea delivers highly accurate mitigations through analysing server signals, adding no latency or UX impact to customer journeys.
Kasada’s client-side proof-of-work challenges add cost to bot attacks, but risk harming UX on old hardware, are environmentally unfriendly, and can be bypassed.
