Protecting Property Portals from Web Scraping Bots

Bots are a high-risk threat to the property portal industry. They steal listing data in order to distribute and utilize it elsewhere on the web.  Listing data is valuable and in higher demand than ever before, resulting in more frequent and powerful bot attacks. Malicious bots mask themselves and hide within human internet traffic, making detection difficult, if not impossible, for in-house solutions. 

Distil Networks recently announced a partnership with Property Portal Accelerators to provide the global property portal industry with the most accurate and automated solution for protecting their websites against malicious bots, web scraping, competitive data mining, form spam and click fraud.
