Bots are automatic programs that sit on other computers that perform attacks to steal data or cause significant disruption. There are lots of different types of attacks that have been attributed to bots. Some of them seem harmless in nature (like content scrapping) but can have longer term ramifications for your business.
For some attacks, the effects can be short-lived, like your website going offline for a few hours. While other attacks can steal data that opens you up to legal action by regulators and the loss of trust between you and your customers.
Some bot attacks can also completely erode your revenues if they’re involved in ad fraud.
That is why you need to have a bot security system in place to protect you. Like those offered to you by Web Secure Services (WSS). Here is a list of features and benefits you can experience while using WSS and see how they can protect your business.
