What are Traps

"Traps" , as the name suggests, are instances of logic which analyse every click or an impression which goes through Botman.

These traps are threat handlers. Traps which handle high level threat ,  medium level threat, and low level threat.

Once a trap identifies a certain threat, it can neutralise it or forward it for analysis. These settings are left to the customer. Having the concept of traps helps in being selective for the type of traffic which is being handled. There are some traps which must be enabled, and there are some which can be optional for the type of campaign which is running.
