Behavioral Anomalies

What are Behavioral Anomalies:

Behavioral anomalies are a class of mobile fraud protection that includes both bots and malware that are nearly undetectable. As bots and malware have become more sophisticated, some have developed the ability to simulate a set of functions, sending seemingly legitimate click, install and in-app event reports.
