4 Ways Distil Helps You Block Malicious Bots

April 25, 2014 Mark Malek

At Distil Networks, we take bot detection and prevention seriously, and we’ve created tools that not only identify threats quickly and easily, but also offer ways to fight back, block malicious bots, ensure the safety of your site and prevent future threats.

Want to block malicious bots on your own site? Here are four ways Distil Networks can help you do it:

  1. By immediately and automatically identifying threats. Our tools use several layers of proactive detection to identify malicious bots on the spot. They won’t even have a chance to scrape your site, post spam comments or submit fraudulent form submissions.
  2. By filtering out specific countries. If your store only ships to the U.S., then why would it need to be accessible by every country in the world? With our tools, you can block out users from other countries – particularly ones well known for suspicious web activity – and ensure your traffic is legitimate and authentic at all times.
  3. Through bot fingerprinting. We monitor each and every single web request and build a unique fingerprint for every one of them. Malicious fingerprints are flagged and distributed throughout the Distil servers, so any time one tries to attack your site, they’re immediately blocked from accessing it.
  4. By stopping theft and fraud bots in their tracks. We’ll isolate bot traffic and prevent both theft and fraud bots from accessing your site. Ultimately, this can mean improved SEO rankings, better protect of your pricing and web content, and faster loading times.

Do you want to block malicious bots on your own eCommerce store? Then contact Distil Networks today. Our comprehensive tools can give you everything you need to fight back against bots and protect your site for the long haul.
