Leading IT Security Publication Praises Distil Networks for ‘Solid Analytics and Good Presentation’ in Forensic Tools and Online Fraud Category
San Francisco, CA – October 14, 2015 – Distil Networks, the global leader in bot detection and mitigation, today announced that SC Magazine recognized it with a five-star rating in a recent Group Test review of Forensic and Online Fraud tools. According to the review, “For monitoring the impact of bots on a network, this is the tool one needs.”
Distil’s 2015 Bad Bot Landscape Report found that over 22 percent of all web traffic is from bad bots, key culprits behind web scraping, online fraud, web application security breaches, content spam, digital ad fraud and downtime. As a result, Distil delivers self-optimizing protection, leveraging machine learning algorithms and the world’s largest Known Violators Database to distribute attack information out to all Distil-protected sites. This unique approach monitors every Web request and builds a signature, or fingerprint, of every incoming connection, allowing the company to accurately detect, flag and block bad bots for all other sites under Distil’s protection. Having blocked more than 100 billion bad bots to date, Distil has the largest known database of malicious bots.
In the review, conducted and written by SC Magazine Technology Editor Dr. Peter Stephenson, Distil is praised for “solid analytics and good presentation.” Dr. Stephenson explains, “we found the user interface very good with clear dashboards and excellent drill-down for details.” This drill-down provides the source of bad bots, showing threat analysis by organization, malicious countries and specific IP addresses. Another key benefit cited is Distil’s 24/7 support at no additional cost.
“To receive an outstanding review from a top tier IT security publication such as SC Magazine is an honor and validates our mission to make the web more secure,” said Rami Essaid, CEO and co-founder of Distil Networks. “Malicious bots are a growing issue for companies around the world and Distil is the only solution on the market that is able to identify and block 99.99 percent of bad bots without impacting legitimate users.”
