How inploi uses Cloudflare to detect and deflect malicious bots and unhelpful AI



In a rapidly evolving digital landscape, the integration of AI and automation technologies is reshaping various industries, making processes more efficient and time-effective. However, this digital transformation also introduces significant challenges and risks, particularly when it comes to talent attraction and hiring through human capital management software designed to streamline the process. 

At inploi, we leverage advanced technologies like Cloudflare to not only enhance our platform's security and efficiency but also to ensure an even better experience: for candidates and for hiring managers. 

Understanding Bots and Their Impact

What Are Bots?

Bots are automated software programs that perform tasks over the internet. While beneficial bots like those used by search engines to index web content exist, there are also malicious bots that scrape data without permission or launch spam attacks.

Bot Management Distinction

Cloudflare's bot management technology differentiates between beneficial and malicious bots. This capability is crucial for maintaining the integrity and security of job listings and ensuring that our platform remains a trustworthy medium for job seekers and employers, whilst enabling beneficial bots to read and index site content to maximise discoverability and organic reach. 

Enhancing Candidate Experience

Preventing Low-Quality Job Listings (that Destroy Candidate Experience) 

By using Cloudflare to block unauthorized bot activities, inploi prevents third parties from scraping job postings and listing them on low-quality job platforms. This measure protects job seekers from outdated or misleading job offers and ensures that only genuine, high-quality listings are accessible, thus preserving the integrity of the candidate experience.

Optimized Website Performance

Through Cloudflare’s content delivery network, our platform offers fast, reliable access globally, enhancing user engagement and satisfaction.

Protecting Hiring Manager’s Time

Targeted Application Filtering

With Cloudflare, inploi filters out spam and bot-generated applications, enabling hiring managers to focus on genuine candidates.

Efficient Recruitment Processes

Clear distinctions between types of bots minimise clutter, streamline workflows, and enhance decision-making efficiency, saving valuable time for hiring managers.

Global Reach and Reliability

Consistent Global Access

Cloudflare’s robust, reliable, and global infrastructure ensures that inploi’s platform remains reliably accessible worldwide - by real people - and defends candidates and hiring managers alike from the potential negatives of bots, AI, and automation for tapping into an international talent pool.

Scalability and Flexibility

As inploi grows, Cloudflare’s scalable solutions ensure continued excellence in performance and user experience, supporting an expanding base of users and job listings.

Cloudflare’s sophisticated bot management and global network capabilities significantly elevate the security and integrity of inploi’s software. By safeguarding data, prioritising genuine interactions, and optimising site performance, we deliver an unmatched hiring solution that benefits candidates and hiring managers alike.
