Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.¹
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps. Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.

Account takeover. Synthetic identities. The security risks that financial services and online merchants face are endless, and the fraud landscape is changing dramatically. You not only need to be aware of how it’s evolving, but how to address these threats, protect your customers and your brand. iovation has analyzed data from our consortium made up of six billion devices seen, 55 million fraud reports, and thousands of fraud analysts to determine the most significant fraud trends and what you can do to combat them.
The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.
Many industry experts advise financial services institutions (FSIs) to embrace digital transformation. At the heart of that mandate is the need to satisfy rising customer expectations for fast, secure, always-on services delivered seamlessly across all channels and devices. While it’s important to harness the digital technologies today’s customers turn to — especially when it comes to engaging the millennial generation — FSIs need to optimize web and mobile performance to deliver exceptional end-user experiences. Here are eight considerations.

Social and business networking sites are changing the way people talk online. Sites like Facebook, MySpace and Bebo help friends stay in touch while LinkedIn and Plaxo mainly connect business users. They are very popular but present new challenges to IT managers. They seem to have come out of nowhere. For example, Facebook currently has 70m users, 40% of which are located in the US. The rapid growth of such sites is part of the problem. Companies risk being caught off guard. Learn how to protect your business from threats posed by online social networking in this 7 Step Guide for IT Managers.
The Internet has proven to be a vital communications medium for worldwide commerce, but as an open and unprotected global network it can also present a wide range of threats that can cripple any business organization. Several years ago, most Internet threats were relatively benign examples of a young adolescent’s technical expertise but over time they have evolved into increasingly sophisticated domestic and foreign attacks that are designed to capture financial, personal, or strategic business information. Threats now come in the form of deliberately malicious acts, and exploitative opportunities for hackers and/or organized crime. The impact is serious, and the landscape of victims is getting broader every day. In response, no organization can afford to have its networks remain unprotected.

Online credentials have been stolen and compromised for almost as long as the Internet has existed. But in the past decade, the frequency of credential theft has increased and the tools and techniques used by cybercriminals have evolved.
Theft of user credentials has ramped up significantly for a number of reasons including:
Users are reusing the same usernames and passwords across multiple sites
Automated tools can take stolen credentials and test them on other sites at a massive scale
Many customers have high value assets that are extremely lucrative targets for cyberattacks
In this white paper, explore one of the most common threats to retailers – credential stuffing – and learn how Shape works with major retailers to shut these attacks down.

With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more.
With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information.
Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.
