Representing roughly 1/3rd of all web traffic, malicious bots have quietly become the #1 threat to your public facing applications and the business assets behind them. Using stolen credentials, attack toolkits and infrastructure from the dark web, bad actors programmatically target your web, mobile and API-based applications with fake account creation, account takeovers, loyalty program fraud, gift card theft and content scraping.

Join us as we dive into specific use cases so you can see firsthand how bad actors execute these attacks. Well then provide a hands-on demonstration showing how Cequence Securitys award-winning platform can discover, detect, and defend against attacks to keep you safe from fraud, financial loss, and competitive deceit.
