About this talk

We've all experienced it – that must-have ticket or item is due to be released, causing thousands to rush online to be at the product drop. This sudden influx of traffic overwhelms and breaks eCommerce infrastructures, damaging profits and frustrating fans. On top of this, valuable items of any kind inevitably attract bots – automated to check out faster than any human, then resell the items at a marked-up price. With huge profits to be made, bots will stop at nothing to flood web stores and snatch inventory ahead of people. By combining a virtual waiting room from Queue-it with advanced bot protection from Netacea, you can keep bad bots clear of hype drops and free up your infrastructure for real fans.
