Software engineer in cyber security - Mobile bot protection, Rust


About the product


Advanced Bot Protection defends mission-critical websites, mobile apps, and APIs from automated threats - bad bots - without affecting the flow of business-critical traffic.
Bad bots are purpose-built to attack organizations’ websites and mobile apps through web scraping, account takeover, transaction fraud, denial of service, competitive data mining, unauthorized vulnerability scans, spam, click fraud, and web and mobile API abuse.
A unique security concern, the bot problem is focused on abuse of business functionality rather than finding and exploiting vulnerabilities.
