Online retail and e-commerce businesses are largely the targets of bad bot attacks such as denial of inventory, scalping, scraping, credential stuffing, and Layer 7 DDoS attacks. These attacks can lead to poor website performance, site downtime, exposure of sensitive customer data, and lost revenue. According to a Forrester Research survey, among 400 respondents, 63% reported losing between 1% and 10% of their revenue to web scraping attacks alone. Not only these kind of attacks causes technical problems, but it also impacts on the cost. Hence, it is crucial for the online retailers to implement and maintain robust security measures against malicious bots. Recently, in 2020 Walmart observed over 20 million bot attempts within the first 30 minutes from one PS5 restock event. Safeguarding the availability and security of e-commerce platforms, networks, and applications is critical to building customer trust. Hence, bot security solutions for retail and e-commerce are expected to have immense potential in the coming years.
