Overview

Now in its third year, the 2016 Distil Networks Bad Bot Report is the IT security industry's most in-depth analysis about the sources, types, and sophistication levels of last year's bot attacks. There are serious implications for anyone responsible for securing websites and APIs.

Bots enable high-speed abuse, misuse, and attacks on websites and APIs. They enable attackers, unsavory competitors, and fraudsters to perform a wide array of malicious activities. This includes web scraping, competitive data mining, personal and financial data harvesting, brute force login and man-in-the-middle attacks, digital ad fraud, spam, transaction fraud, and more.
