Challenge

Samsonite noticed that critical marketing domains were increasing in web traffic, but conversion rates were not corresponding to the spike. Deeper investigation revealed that the skewed metrics were due to heavy bot attacks infiltrating their website. Their KPIs were skewed and were therefore unreliable. Samsonite was unable to progress with making important website decisions due to inaccurate data. Furthermore, manually cleaning the data was an intensive and reactive process that yielded inaccurate results.

Solution

Samsonite chose HUMAN Bot Defender to address their escalating bot problem: 
  • No more skewed data: Bot Defender filters out bot-generated traffic from real human traffic. The solution uses behavioral fingerprinting and machine learning to develop a real-time profile of each visitor to separate bot traffic from human traffic for use in analytics. This gave Samsonite confidence in their KPI data.
  • Easy integration: Samsonite uses YOTTAA for website optimization. The direct integration between HUMAN and YOTTAA allowed Samsonite to implement Bot Defender quickly and effectively with no infrastructure changes. Samsonite was assured that HUMAN and YOTTAA were tightly linked with a proven solution, so it didn’t have to worry about coordinating efforts between the two teams.
  • Improves operational efficiency: Samsonite’s biggest concern was eliminating their manual, reactive responses to bot attacks. With Bot Defender, they had an automated approach to combating bot attacks.
