Best Practices: Defend Against Malicious Bots and Account Takeover.

Malicious bots threaten not only your infrastructure but also your customer accounts. Credential abuse is an identity and authentication challenge fueled by breaches of confidential and personally identifiable information (PII). These breaches occur across many organizations, in all industries.

Lists of compromised credentials are available on the “dark” web. Since users often reuse the same credentials on multiple sites, attacker's test these credentials across different sites to determine which are valid where.

Stolen credentials are used by attackers to conduct account fraud, known as an Account Take Over (ATO) attack. Whilst there is no silver bullet at your disposal, you can develop an effective defense strategy using a combination of the following:

  • Bot detection techniques
  • Application anomaly triggers
  • Nimble response options

Please join our expert in this deep dive, interactive session. We will demonstrate Akamai’s best practices to defend against malicious bots and account takeover attempts.
