Great interview with Rami Essaid, @ramiessaid of CEO Distil, a regular attendee and speaker at the Dublin Web Summit. Distil @DISTIL has been blocking bots since 2011. Distil Networks is the first easy and accurate way to defend websites against malicious bots.
Rami, what’s your background? How did you get into what you’re doing now?
I was working in cloud security and found a niche in the market that no-one was tackling. I decided it was a big enough opportunity that I should quit my job and jump into it with a couple of friends.
What are you most excited about right now?
I think the thing that’s most exciting is how much the world recognizes the need for change in cybersecurity. For the longest time, I think the bad guys have been winning. In the last couple of years, after a lot of breaches that saw a lot of bad things happening, the world has come to the realization that the good guys need some more ammunition, and so that’s what excites me the most – how much the rest of the world is excited about cybersecurity.
