Can Incapsula block bad bots from visiting my website?

Incapsula's Bot Access rule allows you to control which bots can access your web site. There are three types of bots that Incapsula considers:

Good Bots
These are bots such as Google’s search bots or Pingdom which are operated by well-known and commonly-used services. Incapsula’s client classification engine identifies these bots and allows them to access your site.        2

Bad Bots
These include comment spammers, SQL Injection worms and vulnerability scanners and other malicious bots that are positively identified by Incapsula.

Suspected Bots
In many cases, these bots are used by service providers that have not yet been classified by our classification engine. In other cases these could be browsers behind proxies or obfuscation devices that were misclassified by Incapsula. Incapsula will require an additional CAPTCHA security check for any suspected bot, so only human visitors can pass.
