Mitigate Bots and Automated Attacks

Customers demand simplicity. Apps are complex. Attackers are motivated. Security must adapt and protect apps without friction. F5 can help.

Why Bot Mitigation Matters

Fraud is increasing in sophistication and is often carried out by organized crime rings, which constantly change their techniques to bypass security defenses. This puts security teams on the defensive and strains precious resources, while inadvertently disrupting the customer experience. Mitigate bots and abuse that lead to fraud with resilient protection that adapts as attackers retool.

Stop Automated Attacks

The economics are in the hacker’s favor

Apps are the business. Automation enables organizations to be first to market, first to profit, and first to innovation with apps that literally change the world.

Conversely, attackers have embraced bots and automation to carry out their attacks, leading to abuse, account takeovers, fraud, and damaged brands.
