Distil Networks overview

What is Distil Networks?

Distil Networks is a software suite that helps to improve website security by protecting it from fraud, malicious attacks, account hijacking and bot attacks. The suite consists of three main software products, namely - bot detection and mitigation, threat intelligence and API security.

Distil Networks helps to block 99.9% of harmful bots without affecting legitimate users and provides complete visibility and control over human and bot website traffic. The software can view threats by organization or country and then block IPs, competitors, and countries in addition to recording traffic and predicting bots based on dynamic classifications and behavioral anomalies. The tool helps to protect multiple sites by gathering information and threat intelligence feeds about attacks and distributing it across to all Distil-protected sites. The advanced browser validation tool can identify web scrapers and block them while the threat intelligence service helps to identify fraudulent activity by delivering insights on IP addresses and global proxies. The software blocks IP addresses with a poor reputation and helps to prevent payment fraud, new account fraud, and digital ad fraud. Distil also ensures API security by detecting malicious API clients and using authentication methods.

Distil Networks can either be deployed on-premises or hosted in the cloud and is PCI compliant. It supports businesses of all sizes in a variety of industries including e-commerce, real estate, travel, marketplace & classifieds and digital publishing. Some of its customers include Staples, EasyJet, Thomson Reuters, Dow Jones, AOL, and StubHub.

No more Bots with Distil Networks

Review Source: Capterra

Our site was being scrapped on a daily basis and we couldn't block them as fast as they were coming in and changing IP's. Our Customers were becoming very frustrated as our site was starting to suffer from a user experience and could also cause issues with SEO. Our team tried to do it our self with little to no success until we started with the Distil platform and noticed a big improvement with site uptime and blocking bots. Seeing the reports that showed the amount of bots was a big eye opener as with our home grown solution we weren't able to see these insights. Great job to Ron, Rami and the team at Distil RG

Review Source: Capterra

Very disappointed. I had been with distil for almost 5 years. Mostly due because we were so integrated into them it was difficult to leave. We recently left to cloudflare and couldn’t be happier. Distil would constantly point the finger that it wasn’t their system that was causing downtime on us or not allowing our customers to access the site. When in fact it was distil in the end. We would have to be the ones investigating and telling distil how to fix the problems that their systems were causing. There is zero support and no one to speak to. Even when we left it was a joke. Billing still can’t figure out what is going on. And we are still waiting for a phone call from our account manager that has yet in 5 years to contact us. In the end, they raised our price by 300%. We now get the same better service with cloudflare for less.

Nothing. We were so happy to leave distil.

It blocked everything and would prevent our customers from accessing shopping cart pages. Asking them to enter captchas to access the pages. Our customers would call in saying how frustrated they were with getting the errors. We lost more sales because of distil.
