New Research From Bright Data Reveals Appetite for Tighter External Regulation of Bot Use Among Technology and Financial Services Decision-makers

“Bots are no longer just a futuristic ambition. It’s clear that they are now playing a crucial role in driving the real-time economy forward. Bot usage has been growing rapidly in recent years and this research highlights the rising number of use cases for this vital technology,” said Ron Kol, CTO of Bright Data. “It’s no surprise that bot usage is growing within the data sector. For this to be both effective and sustainable, organizations need to be responsible when collecting public web data or choosing a compliant third-party to do this for them – this includes advocating for increased global regulation. Given that the bot space is so fast moving, outsourcing bot operations makes it even easier for financial services, IT, and technology organizations to focus on what they excel at and leave the bot management to the professionals”.
