The top concern is the sheer volume of new malicious bot attacks being detected, Gustas says. "The main reason we’re seeing more malicious bot activity is because of the lowered level of entry for a bad actor to start a bot attack or campaign,” he says.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Fraud and Breach Summit in Chicago, Gustas discusses:
- Objectives behind malicious bots;
- How they impact business operations;
- How they can be stopped.
Gustas is a solutions engineer at Cequence Security, where he assists users facing application security challenges.
