Distil Networks Strengthens Bot Management Solution with Significant Product Enhancements

May 14, 2019

New Deployment Options Integrate Bot Defense into AWS, Cloudflare, F5 Networks and NGINX while Granular Web Traffic Analysis Enhances Capabilities for Sophisticated Bot Protection

ARLINGTON, VA – May 15, 2019 – Distil Networks, the global leader in bot mitigation, today announced Distil Connector and Dynamic Reporting Engine: new features to its Bot Defense product that enhance capabilities and ease of use for customers worldwide. These new capabilities make Distil the only bot management company on the market today that pairs breadth of integrations with such depth of analysis and customization.

Distil Connector allows users to integrate the company’s Bot Defense into popular content delivery networks (CDNs), load balancers and web servers, such as AWS, Cloudflare, F5 and NGINX through APIs. Additionally, the new Dynamic Reporting Engine supports deeper, log-level analysis and provides custom-built dashboards and alerting for a more granular view of website traffic.

According to Distil’s annual Bad Bot Report, bad bots undermine web traffic integrity daily, accounting for one in five website requests. Many web-focused businesses today require not only integration options that can be implemented quickly and can fit into uniquely-built infrastructures with ease, but also full visibility and robust reporting capabilities to better understand web and mobile app traffic.

“We are entering a new age of bot attack sophistication where simply blocking bot activity from your website, mobile app, or API is no longer enough,” said Rami Essaid, co-founder and chief product and strategy officer at Distil Networks. “It has become increasingly important to understand the ‘why’ behind your bot mitigation—why block a user or IP address, why issue a CAPTCHA, why investigate suspicious behavior. By offering flexible deployment and log-level analysis, Distil now provides its users with an easier experience and deeper understanding of their web traffic that can help to make smarter business decisions and aid in stakeholder reporting. We know that when it comes to bot defense, there is no time to waste, so we are now making it easier for any business in any industry to implement our solution and harness its power, allowing users to better protect their businesses today.”
