Distil Recognized for Ongoing Efforts to Block Malicious Bots and Make the Web a Safer Place
ARLINGTON, Va – June 11, 2014 – Distil Networks, the worldwide leader in bot detection and mitigation, has been named to the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) 2014 Online Trust Honor Roll for making the Web a safer place by demonstrating exceptional protection and security against malicious bots that attack websites resulting in data theft, fraud and slow website performance.
The OTA is a nonprofit organization with the mission to enhance online trust and empower users, while promoting innovation and the vitality of the Internet. The honor roll, now in its 5th year, is a composite independent audit that includes a composite analysis focusing on three major categories: a company’s data protection, security and privacy practices, including over two-dozen criteria. To qualify for the Honor Roll, sites had to receive composite score of 80% or better and a score of at least 55 in each of the three categories.
“The evolving threat landscape requires an ongoing commitment to keep companies and their customers safe from malicious attacks,” said Craig Spiezle, Online Trust Alliance. “This year’s 2014 Online Trust Honor Roll recipients including Distil are doing just that, providing a superior level of trust and integrity, providing a safer online experience and demonstrating a commitment to data stewardship.”
“Being named to the OTA’s 2014 Online Trust Honor Roll is validation of our efforts to make the web a safer place,” said Rami Essaid, CEO, Co-founder, Distil Networks. With more than nine billion bad bots blocked, we realize the gravity of the current bot threat landscape and will continue to work to prevent malicious bots from attacking websites and putting companies and their customers at risk.”
