Did you know 30% of travel industry website visitors are unsavory competitors, hackers, spammers, and fraudsters?
Worse yet, unwanted traffic from web-scraping bots can negatively impact revenue management targets and yields across multiple distribution channels. Join Anthony Drury, Director, Head of Business, at easyJet, as he takes you through his strategy to ensure easyJet customers -- wherever they are booking -- get price and availability content through approved API channels. The approach of easyJet ensures that all bookings are screened for fraudulent activity and blocks are added to restrict screen scraping.
Watch the reply to learn how to:
- Eliminate the cascading negative effects of screen-scraping bots
- Optimize revenue while simultaneously improving the customer experience
- Strengthen travel industry partnerships by creating a level playing field
- Improve website KPIs like look-to-book ratios, SEO page rank, cross-selling/up-selling, site speed and conversion rates
As part of our research work focused on identifying automated network traffic that we can relate with malicious behavior and botnet communications, we often come across with traffic not necessarily related to malicious intent, but that represents a high risk for the companies allowing it to occur on their networks.
Often associated with abandoned ware, policy control failures, or miss configurations, these traffic patterns end up exposing company information and assets to multiple risk levels.
On this webinar, we are going to explore this byproduct of our botnet research, how widespread this problem is, how we can use this to relay risk information to companies, and the several degrees of exposure and impact that this type of traffic can represent.
More people in the UK shop online that in any other country. This is driving significant changes in the types and volumes of network traffic. In this webinar Mike will discuss trends in retail and ecommerce that are shaping the way we consume online services.Read more >

Hackers have expanded their craft to use SSL traffic as a means to obfuscate their attacks and rasomware download. Using Transport Layer Security (TLS) or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, attackers now cipher malicious payloads and command and control communication to evade your cyber defense.
Attend this live webcast to:
•Have an understanding of how adversaries are using encryption against us.
•Be aware of the common attacks that leverage SSL/TLS traffic to evade detection
•Be prepare for the key challenges when inspecting SSL Traffic
Turn Raw Threat Intelligence Into Context and Action
Attackers don’t stand still; your defenses shouldn’t either. See how multi-method threat prevention can be used to detect and prevent the most evasive threats and command-and-control traffic, and open up any source of threat intelligence to be used for automated prevention. These capabilities drive up the cost of successful data breaches for attackers, making their efforts too expensive to consider.
You will learn more about:
•How an evasion-resistant analysis environment defeats whole classes of VM evasion techniques.
•Threat prevention capabilities that automate the blocking of command-and-control traffic in a way that previously required teams of signature writers.
•How to enable security teams to gain leverage from any source of threat intelligence and drive automated prevention.
With the increasing use of SaaS and cloud-based apps, backhauling all internet-bound traffic from the branch to headquarters wastes bandwidth and degrades performance. Learn how first-packet application visibility enables intelligent breakout of trusted apps directly to the internet while still directing unknown or suspicious apps to corporate security services for further inspection.Read more >
From automated vehicles to ride hailing apps, transportation as we know it is changing - and fast. But new technologies alone won't help communities build the efficient, equitable, and sustainable transportation networks communities want. In fact, these innovative technologies could do just the opposite, especially if they are not deployed wisely. Cities must collect the right data and enact the right policies to ensure they do not exacerbate problems like inequity and traffic, and to hold themselves accountable to the promise of new mobility technologies.
In this webinar, you will find out why - and how - the smartest cities of tomorrow will be those that adopt data-driven transportation strategies today. Join for Laura Schewel's presentation to gain insights into:
• Why the status quo for transportation data collection is no longer good enough
• The types of Massive Mobile Data that are useful for transportation and urban planning
• Algorithmic processing techniques that are critical for making this data useful
• Case studies from California and Virginia that demonstrate why Massive Mobile Data drives more effective transportation planning
• A forward-looking blueprint for using Massive Mobile Data to maximize the potential benefits of new transportation technologies - and minimize negative impacts
Laura Schewel founded StreetLight Data, a mobility analytics provider, after spending more than a decade as an advanced transportation researcher and statistician at the Rocky Mountain Institute and FERC. She has particular expertise in transportation systems, sustainability and safety, and vehicle/system modeling and analysis.
