Mt. Pleasant, SC – July 8, 2016 – Market Cube, an online sample and research operations, panel services and technology services company, today announced it has selected Distil Networks, Inc., the global leader in bot detection and mitigation, to automatically block bots, eliminate website slowdowns and increase client retention rates.

Market Cube is committed to providing  clients with top-quality market data extracted from survey results. Their online Univox Community provides opportunities for survey respondents to earn rewards by contributing their opinions about various products. In order for the data to provide value, survey responses must come from verified human participants. Market Cube sought to implement a solution that would avoid payouts to fraudulent survey respondents, prevent bots from straining their web infrastructure, and eliminate any question of data integrity for clients.

Market Cube hoped to differentiate itself from competitors by looking outside of the box to find a robust solution focused specifically on bots.  After recognizing the limitations of JavaScript-based bot protection tools, it became apparent that Distil Networks not only met their data integrity needs, but provided an ease of use for seamless integration and fast, reliable results.

“We provide our clients with the most accurate survey responses in order to make the most informed decisions for their businesses. In order to ensure that we provide high quality data consistently, we needed a solution that would eliminate bot activity without straining our infrastructure or providing an unreasonable false positive rate,” said Alex Leger, vice president of product at Market Cube. “Distil Networks not only blocks major bot attacks automatically, but they have eliminated website slowdowns and set us apart from our competitors by ensuring reliable results. Simply put, we are using Distil because it is the best bot blocking solution on the market.”

After rapid deployment, Distil Networks has already blocked major bot attacks from impacting Market Cube data, increased client retention rates by avoiding corrupt reporting, and eliminated website slowdowns by preventing bots from overrunning servers. Through implementation of Distil, Market Cube now understands the online behavior of legitimate survey respondents, making it the trusted leader in online market research.

“Bots are ubiquitous, and unfortunately no website is immune, particularly if a payment transaction service is available to exploit,” said Rami Essaid, CEO of Distil Networks. “Market Cube’s foresight in addressing this problem has helped improve their service to clients by removing the noise and fraud from bots on their web infrastructure, and we’re glad to be a part of the solution.”
