Presented by

Thomas Platt, Traffic Management and Web Security Expert

About this talk

We’re nearly half way through 2018 and a week away from GDPR coming into force. With this in mind – how does GPPR and Account Takeovers affect you? As a business you are directly affected if your customer’s details are hacked and you could be faced with compensating or losing affected customers. At a minimum you would be expected to honour or reimburse any points that had been illegitimately redeemed. A data breach at another company could result in the stolen user names and passwords being used on mass by millions of bots around the world to probe other sites to look for matching combinations and gain access to those accounts. With GDPR coming into force this month, businesses with consumers in the EU are required to put reasonable protection in place to protect data. This includes proactively preventing attacks and putting measures in place against large scale brute force attacks. How TrafficDefender can help: As experts in automated traffic and cyber security, we have developed software to identify and manage malicious traffic and block account takeovers.

TrafficDefender protects the internet from bots. Bots are everywhere, accounting for as much as 52% of traffic to web sites. Some are good bots but an increasing number are malicious bots, they all need to be managed. Hackers use bots to launch pre-attack scans, exploit vulnerabilities, execute code injection attacks, launch denial of service attacks, and perform password guessing and account take overs against your web facing properties. These bots commit fraud by credential stuffing, repetitively making and cancelling purchases, holding and/or consuming inventory, scraping sites to clone them, stealing information, and a host of other unwanted activities. Conversely, legitimate bot traffic is a necessary part of the Internet. Good bots are used to crawl sites on behalf of search engines for SEO optimization, scan content to ensure that it hasn’t been plagiarized, and provide real-time content such as news and weather information. Organizations want to be able to detect these good bots, while at the same time making sure they don’t negatively impact the human user experience. Having the ability to eliminate malicious bot traffic while managing legitimate bot traffic is critical to maintaining your uptime and your lines of business. TrafficDefender manages this business problem by applying machine learning and behavioural analysis to all web traffic. Customers use our practical use of behavioural science that learns from all your web traffic to provide actionable insight you can use to prevent bots, attacks and fraud, either through our console or within their infrastructure via powerful APIs. Our approach allows machines to understand and interpret the areas of uncertainty within cybersecurity. The resulting automation means there is less onus on customers to investigate as we provide actionable insight, recommendations on the best course of action, and the ability to enforce those actions based on your company goals. We are happy to discuss how we are helping leading companies in their respective sectors understand the unknown and quantify their bot threats and protect from said automated non-human traffic.
