The Rising Bot Threat to Media, Marketplaces and Video Gaming

Over recent years, botnet attacks have hit platforms hard with their mass destruction approach to cyber-attacks. However, the tide has turned, and automated bot technology now makes targeted attacks infinitely quicker and simpler to carry out, exposing online gaming and streaming businesses to greater threats. 

The challenge lies in accurately identifying these highly targeted automated bot attacks that are designed to hide in plain sight, masquerading as genuine users, before they can carry out malicious activity such as credential stuffing, fake account creation and scraping.  

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically escalated that problem further, introducing fresh surges of online gamers and streamers bombarding platforms and making it easier than ever for attackers to hide their nefarious activity.
