Bot management is an increasingly vital tool that enables organizations to confront bad bots. According to Forrester, “Bad bots continue to consume resources and overwhelm organizations, accounting for at least a quarter of all internet traffic. Bot management has evolved from an emerging market to a rapidly maturing offering expected to meet the needs of small organizations with a single application as well as large enterprises with hundreds of them.”

The 2022 Forrester Bot Management Wave report states that, “Akamai’s vision is a standout, recognizing the evolution of bot operations, addressing the growing collaboration between security and the lines of business, and protecting the end-customer journey; recent launches of adjacent offerings like Account Protector and Audience Hijacking Protection support the vision.”

The report specifically notes that, “Akamai shows strength in bot detection, with 16 layers ordered to minimize performance impacts and anti tampering features like Javascript obfuscation. A wide range of attack response options are available, including tarpits, cryptographic challenges, and deception. Akamai provides a list of more than 1,500 good bots across 17 categories — customers can easily add other known good bots to the list.”
