How to Stop Forum Spam in Just One Step

October 17, 2014 Courtney Brady

There are plenty of methods you can implement to stop forum spam. You can install CAPTCHAs and honey pots, you can block foreign IP addresses, or you can monitor the browsing speed of your visitors, for starters. Unfortunately, all of these are extremely time-consuming, and not as effective as they need to be. Even with all of those safeguards in place, you may still fall victim to bot attacks.

So what can you do to stop forum spam for good? You can use Distil Network’s bot-blocking technology.

Distil Networks Can Stop Forum Spam
Our advanced solution not only blocks bots, but also builds a unique fingerprint for each one that tries to access your site. That way, they won’t be able to post spam on your site or skew your traffic numbers ever again.

The best part is that it doesn’t require any time on your part at all. You don’t have to spend hours sifting through analytics data to find out which IP addresses are attacking you. You don’t have to hire a developer to install CAPTCHAs and other on-site security features. All you need to do is deploy the Distil Networks solution in the cloud, and your site is protected immediately.

Our technology doesn’t just target forum spamming bots; it can also stop theft bots and click fraud bots.  That means that no matter what type of bots they are, they won’t be able to slow down or take advantage of your site again.
