Akamai announces an addition to the Cloud Security portfolio-- Bot Manager Premier, a means for organisations to manage the impact of bots across websites, mobile applications and web API.

Akamai bot managerAccording to a Ponemon Institute survey commissioned by Akamai, 54% of respondents report an increase in both number and severity of credential stuffing attacks. Making matters worse, 68% of respondents lack visibility into credential stuffing attacks, while 70% believe existing solutions are not sufficient to prevent such attacks. Enter Bot Manager Premier, designed to address several bot use cases as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Bot Manager Premier features behaviour anomaly analysis capabilities the compan claims can successfully detect many sophisticated bots. Based on technology from 2016 acquisition Cyberfend, it even handles bots able to continually modify behaviour in order to evade detection.

In addition, it manages "good" bots used by organisations, such as scrapers and content aggregators, while a mobile SDK allows for better mobile app and API protection

"Akamai Bot Manager clients can actually measure the reduction in fraud driven by stopping credential abuse and account takeovers," the company says. "By effectively combining proven, advanced detection capabilities with highly flexible management options, Akamai gives businesses a vital tool to address their myriad bot problems."
