Session Title: Bot Forensics
Speakers: Ritika Tandon and Shashwath Hegde
The key to Bot Management is analysis. Online businesses need to avoid the whack-a-mole game with Bot operators and make intelligent decisions to effectively manage both "good" and "bad" bots. To be truly self-serviceable one needs an analytical approach in identifying bot activity, changes in bot patterns and behaviors, and tools used by bot operators. This is a hands-on session in learning how to use the Akamai's Bot Analysis tool and make strategic decisions that could be implemented using the Akamai Bot Management configuration. In this session, Akamai will walk through some real-world scraping scenarios to lead customers through the analysis and response management life-cycle using Bot Analysis view. There will also be a discussion on the various advanced actions available with the product that could be implemented for different response strategies.
