The internet is crawling with bots. A bot is a software program that runs automated tasks over the internet, typically performing simple, repetitive tasks at great speeds unattainable, or undesirable by humans. They are responsible for many small jobs that we take for granted such as search engine crawling, website health monitoring, fetching web content, measuring site speed and powering APIs. They can also be used to automate security auditing by scanning your network and websites to find vulnerabilities and help remediate them. One of the ways that bots can harm businesses is by engaging in web scraping. We work with customers often on this issue and wanted to share what we’ve learned. This presentation discusses what web scraping is, how it works, and why it’s a problem for website owners. Lastly, we will introduce a number of techniques website owners can use to protect themselvers and their business.
