Bot traffic reached a new high in 2020

The cybersecurity firm Imperva has released the latest edition of its annual Bad Bots Report revealing that last year saw the highest percentage of bad bot traffic since the report’s inception back in 2014.

In 2020, bad bots accounted for 25.6 percent of all bot traffic online while traffic from humans fell by 5.7 percent. Bots are also growing in scale and having a wider impact on user’s daily lives as more than 40 percent of all web traffic originated from a bot last year.
