Session Details:

Description: Bots are a reality, and it's hard to separate your users and good bots (e.g. search) from the bad ones, including brute-force, fraud-enabling, and scrapers. Ido Safruti of PerimeterX will review how bots work, show how to operate a few common bots, and - most importantly - demonstrate how you can detect and block malicious activity while enabling your users and good bots to work uninterrupted.

Attendees Will Learn About:

  • The threats represented by malicious bots, and how they operate
  • Open-source tools and techniques to detect and better manage bots
  • Ways to block harmful bot activity, while allowing human customers and "good bots" to work unimpeded
  • How to analyze web behavior across three layers -- users, applications, and networks -- to protect both your infrastructure and your business
