What type of a Firewall is offered by SiteLock and how to set it up?

SiteLock offers a basic firewall to help block bot traffic which may harm the website. On logging into the SiteLock Dashboard, you can see a graph of your website's traffic which reports human visits and bot visits.

To use SiteLock's Firewall, you need to add an A record to your domain name in order to point to SiteLock's servers where the Firewall is installed. This way, all traffic coming to the website is routed through the Firewall.
