SAS protects its booking site from account takeovers with Radware’s Bot Manager

Radware Ltd.

MAHWAH, NJ, March 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cybersecurity and application delivery solutions, today announced that SAS, Scandinavia’s leading airline, is using Radware’s Bot Manager with associated managed services to protect its booking site, flysas.com, from account takeover attacks.

The airline industry relies heavily on online shopping. As a result, it is heavily targeted by cyber attackers who deploy bots to perform attacks, such as credential cracking and credential stuffing, to take control of accounts.

When SAS suspected bots were responsible for attacks on its booking site, it contacted Radware for assistance. Radware Bot Manager’s in-depth intent-based behavioral analysis successfully identified and mitigated distributed malicious bot traffic, while ensuring legitimate user traffic was unaffected.

“Bots are a real danger for airlines. The threats they pose compromise user privacy, which is unacceptable,” said Thomas Widen, CISO at SAS. “The Radware Bot Manager helps us protect the customer experience with minimally invasive solutions. With it, we are able to mitigate distributed attacks without affecting legitimate traffic or disrupting our operations. »

“From inventory denial to account takeover attacks, bad bots can wreak havoc on an airline’s bottom line,” said Pavan Thatha, bot management solutions manager for Radware. “Security and availability are paramount for travel booking sites. Without proper bot detection and mitigation, data breaches and revenue loss can occur – a dangerous combination.

Radware Bot Manager offers comprehensive protection of web applications, mobile applications and APIs against automated threats such as bots. Bot Manager provides accurate bot management across all channels by combining behavioral modeling for granular intent analysis, collective bot intelligence, and fingerprinting of browsers, devices, and machines. It protects against all forms of account takeover, inventory denial, DDoS, ad and payment fraud and web scraping to help organizations protect and grow their online operations.
