Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates. They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Spreading malware is now their favourite technique.

While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cyber criminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.

This whitepaper identifies the way malware and bots work together to target the modern business, how criminals cash-in, and how to protect your organisation against them with a layered defence.
