Are the Bot protection "Browser Verification" and the DDOS "Client Side Integrity Defense" the same?

I recently needed to configure some Advanced WAF/ASM Bot defense profile and DDOS profile and I saw the two features "Client Side Integrity Defense" and the DDOS "Browser Verification". I knew them but I started asking myself are they the same feature but with the DDOS profile only after the DDOS threesholds being reached then this feature is activated and for the F5 Bot profile this feature if enabled always checks the web browsers if they support javascript.


Basically if I enable Bot protection "Browser Verification"  do I need at all to enable the DDOS "Client Side Integrity Defense" feature?


Also with the DDOS "Client Side Integrity Defense" feature is the javascript inserted Before Access or After Access?
