According to Ameet Naik, security evangelist at PerimeterX, “So while it is not surprising, it is still concerning that successful cyberattacks have made their biggest jump in six years, now up to 86% of all attempts. Nine out of ten organizations have experienced cyberattacks targeting web and mobile applications. Credential stuffing attacks and account takeover are the top concern with over 43% of respondents reporting it as a major concern. Bot management has the lowest adoption of all the technologies listed but is the top priority for acquisition in the next 12 months. As bots increase in sophistication and attack tools become more widely available, more organizations find themselves a target. Fighting bots is an ongoing game of whack-a-mole that consumes scarce cybersecurity resources that would be better spent on higher value activities. As a result, organizations are prioritizing investing in bot management in 2021.”
