“Some bot operators interject scripts into their code to mimic human behavior. Others will circumvent the web product page and go directly to the API behind it. Before Distil, bot blocking was eating up 20% of team resources, only 30% effective, and impacting the team’s quality of life. Distil lets us granularly control questionable traffic or simply block it all.”

– Brian Gress, Director of IT Systems & Governance
