San Francisco, CA – November 4, 2015 – Distil Networks, the global leader in bot detection and mitigation, today announced its co-founder and CTO, Engin Akyol, will be keynoting a session titled “Field Guide to Optimizing Your Web Application Security,” on Thursday, November 12 at 2:05 p.m. at the Defrag 2015 Conference.
Fifty-nine percent of all web traffic is now made of bots. Why? Cheap cloud computing resources and open source software have enabled attackers to launch bots faster and at a lower cost than ever before. Bad bots are now the key culprits behind web scraping, online fraud, account hijacking, man-in-the-middle attacks, application denial of service, and brute force attacks. Attendees of this session will learn how to manage unwanted traffic and transactions with additional strategies for defending web infrastructure from bot attacks.
