Benjamin Fabre, DataDome: Bots-as-a-Service Lower the Barrier to Entry for Launching Attacks

Bad bots continue to be big trouble. Not only do they account for a quarter of all Internet traffic, but it’s also now easier than ever for the average, non-technical person to launch malicious bot attacks, thanks to Bots-as-a-Service.

People are increasingly monetizing bots, providing them in exchange for a subscription fee. As such, having money trumps technical knowledge when it comes to launching hard-hitting bot attacks. The wake of destruction caused by bad bots can seriously jeopardize businesses’ website performance, customer experience, data security, and overall reputation.

We spoke with Benjamin Fabre, co-founder and CTO of DataDome for a deeper dive into Bots-as-a-Service attacks, and best practices for combating them.
