Bots now make up over 50 percent of website traffic and have become the primary source of malicious application attacks, from DDoS to sophisticated intrusions. The ability of bad actors to disguise bot traffic as legitimate via simulated human behavior presents a challenge: Organizations need to allow “good” bot and human traffic while blocking the “bad” traffic.

In this webcast we’ll discuss:

  • What you need to know about bot traffic
  • Types of bots, from the simple to the sophisticated
  • Three real-world applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence to identify and defeat malicious bots
