Distil Networks' bot detection and mitigation technology has finally landed on local shores, thanks to a distribution deal with Cloud Distribution, a value-added cloud distributor in the Asia Pacific region.
For Australian and NZ resellers, it means better access to tools that can protect against malicious bots - often used by competitors, hackers and fraudsters.
Malicious bots can be the causes of some particularly nasty security threats: Organisations can face web scraping, account takeovers, competitive data mining, online fraud and downtime.
Distil Networks will deliver the only accurate way to defend websites and APIs against bad bots, without it ever affecting legitimate users. Real-time bot detection then gives numerous options to mitigate attacks.
Jason Evans, Distil Networks senior vice president of Global Sales, says traditionally the process of blocking bad bots can be a case of 'whack-a-mole'. The only way to solve the problem is to correctly identify traffic, which eliminates security concerns.
“We’re telling the difference between human and automated traffic. We’re telling difference between good traffic and malicious traffic," Evans adds.
