Akamai Named a Bot Management Leader by Independent Research Firm
Customers Cite Akamai's "Outstanding Job of Identifying New and Emerging Threats and Adapting Their Response."
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."
Akamai's bot management solutions offer behavioral-based detections with advanced machine learning algorithms powered by unmatched volumes of data on the intelligent edge platform. Interacting with 1.3 billion unique devices on a typical day, Akamai can identify anomalies in hundreds of signals to detect the most sophisticated bots.

"We are constantly evolving our solutions to stay ahead of evolving threats," said
