Today, the volume of automated threats on the internet is growing with over 25% of all internet traffic comprised of bad bots. Many consider these bots as only a benign nuisance, but in reality they are purposely deployed to achieve specific goals and target businesses around the clock. Fraudsters, hackers, and competitors use bots to commit online fraud, break into customer accounts, and gain an unfair competitive advantage by scraping prices and proprietary content.
