How Distil Can Block Bots and Prevent Future Attacks

July 24, 2014 Courtney Brady

If you don’t currently have a way to block bots from accessing your site, then now is the time to act. Bots can pose a serious threat to your website, putting your sales, your customers and your business as a whole in jeopardy. If you want to ensure your company is as successful as possible, you’ll need to invest in a bot-blocking tool right away.

Not sure where to start with blocking bots on your site? Consider Distil Networks. Our software can block bots and prevent future attacks in the following ways:

  • Detecting bad bots right away. Our automated system immediately identifies potentially malicious bots as soon as they attempt to access your site. With several layers of protective detection, we’re able to monitor user behavior patterns and spot any anomalies that may indicate malicious intent. Then, we prevent them from accessing your site ever again.
  • Banning bots, IP addresses, countries and more from your site. Once bad bots are detected, we then move to block them completely from accessing your site. To ensure you’re not attacked again, we can even block out user-specific IP addresses, as well as potentially dangerous countries, referring sites and hot links.
  • Fingerprinting bad bots and storing them in our network-wide database. Each bot we block is fingerprinted, meaning we build a unique signature for each and every one. If any of those malicious, fingerprinted bots tries to access your site again (or any other site on our network), they will be flagged and blocked immediately.

Do you want to block bots from accessing your site, stealing your content or giving your competitors a lead in your industry? Then contact Distil Networks today. Our unique tools and software can give you the protection and peace of mind you need. Call now to learn more or get started.
