NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kasada, provider of the most effective and easiest way to defend against advanced bot attacks, today announced that it has partnered with the Retail & Hospitality Information Sharing and Analysis Center (RH-ISAC) to help businesses throughout the retail, hospitality, and travel industries take advantage of the company’s modern approach to solving the problem of bots.
Cybercriminals are relentless in their attacks on companies in the retail and hospitality industries, using malicious automation at scale to get what they want. Regardless of whether they’re scraping valuable online content, conducting account takeovers, cracking gift cards, stealing loyalty points, or all of the above, fraudsters are continually working to evade even the toughest defenses that companies install.
“Those in the retail and hospitality industries are highly susceptible to this type of fraud, namely because of the large amounts of critical information they have - and the underlying desire to not hinder the customer transaction process,” said Sam Crowther, CEO and Founder of Kasada. “That results in a massive loss of revenue for these companies. To fight back, companies need a new and different approach - one that stops sophisticated bots before they enter your system - and does so without adding obstacles like CAPTCHAs that hinder online conversion rates.”
"RH-ISAC is thrilled to have Kasada join as an Associate Member, and we look forward to working with them to educate the retail and hospitality sector about automated threats impacting eCommerce - and ways to mitigate these threats,” added Suzie Squier, president of RH-ISAC.
On March 31, 2022 at 3:30pm EDT, Benjamin Vaughn, SVP and CISO of Hyatt, and Sam Crowther, CEO and Founder of Kasada, will be giving a presentation on what retailers and those in the hospitality industry should know about bot attacks and how to protect themselves. The webinar, entitled “Cyber Thursday: The Underground Bot Supply Chain - What The Retail and Hospitality Community Need to Know,” is a part of the RH-ISAC’s webinar series and will consider the question: “Why do organizations still rely on traditional, but outdated, methods to defend against sophisticated bad bots?” To sign up, please visit this link.
