Bot mitigation is the process of identifying and stopping attacks of bots — unwanted automated programs that can flood various online platforms. Bots perform legitimate or malicious activities, including web scraping, content theft, account takeover, spamming, and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.
During bot mitigation, human traffic is distinguished from bot traffic, and appropriate actions are taken to prevent or minimize the negative consequences associated with bots. Bot mitigation typically involves applying various detection techniques and countermeasures to protect online systems and users from bot-driven threats.
