Bots now make up over 50% 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.
Laurent Gil outlines what you need to know about bot traffic, discusses the types of bots you may encounter, from the simple to the sophisticated, and shares three real-world applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence to identify and defeat malicious bots.
