Verizon Digital Media Services (VDMS) is augmenting its security offerings by partnering with Distil Networks, a pro-
vider of bot detection and mitigation technology. VDMS will deploy Distil's bot-protection service on Verizon's Edgecast
In some cases, bot traffic can resemble a small-scale DDoS attack. Figuring out whether the traffic is benign or mali-
cious is the trick. Distil's technology does 'device fingerprinting' that tracks behaviors of users over time; these patterns
enable customers to block unauthorized bots posing as users (helping to block account takeover), while also allowing
authorized bots (such as search engines) access to the website.
Customers can automatically filter out bot traffic in front of cloud applications without requiring software modifications
to websites or cloud interfaces. Although there's a resemblance to Web-application firewall services, WAFs can inhibit
dangerous cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks. Verizon said that the bot mitigation service is currently avail-
able to VDMS customers, and is offered in addition to VDMS's existing WAF and DDoS mitigation services.
