Stephen Gates, Chief Research Intelligence Analyst
Today's hackers use bots to launch pre-attack scans, post comment spam, exploit vulnerabilities, and execute code injection attacks, denial of service attacks, and password guessing hacks against your web facing properties. Bots commit fraud by credential stuffing, repetitively making and canceling purchases, holding and/or consuming inventory, scraping sites, stealing information, and a host of other unwanted activities. Having the ability to eliminate malicious bot traffic while managing legitimate bot traffic is critical to maintaining your uptime and your lines of business.
