Malicious Bot Detection Through A Complex Proxy Network

Posted by ThreatX Labs on Apr 17, 2019 7:03:26 AM

A malicious entity operating a botnet to execute credential stuffing or password spraying attacks will frequently be stopped after a series of application login attempts by an app security solution, such as a WAF, and specific bot protection solutions.

Automation has become a central component to growing and successful businesses. This holds true in the cybersecurity sector as well, specifically with identity and access management, patching, and network change management. No matter the business, the goal of automation remains the same - improving response and task completion times or freeing skilled human labor from mundane tasks.

The term “next-generation” gets thrown around a lot in security. Marketers have overused the term to the point that, for many, it has become an empty buzzword used to describe virtually anything. On the other hand, technology does go through major transformational changes where new approaches are needed to replace the old ways of doing things. The rise of next-generation firewalls (NGFWs), which replaced the old port-based firewalls are a classic example of this sort of transformation.
