How to identify and stop malicious bots from attacking your websites.

Now in its third year, the 2016 Distil Networks Bad Bot Landscape Report is the IT security industry's most in-depth analysis about the sources, types, and sophistication levels of last year's bot attacks. There are serious implications for anyone responsible for securing websites and APIs.
