Bot Defense is offered by Distil Networks through various means of deployment:
- Secure CDN – Configure through a Content Delivery Network to increase the speed of websites and protect enterprises from targeted DDoS attacks
- Private AWS cloud – employ in the cloud using Amazon Web Services
- Appliance – Deploy in the datacenter as a Layer 7 reverse proxy
- On your own infrastructure – utilize on any cloud service, whether hosted or a virtual environment
Distil Networks aims to offer large and small enterprises the means to defend their websites, mobile apps and APIs against malicious bots — without impacting genuine users. To do so, Distil builds a fingerprint of each incoming connection in order to provide control over good bot and bad bot traffic, while also providing a variety of options to prevent and fix malicious attacks. Distil also defends against web scraping, account takeover, transaction fraud, denial of service, competitive data mining, un-authorized vulnerability scans, spam, click fraud, and web and mobile API abuse. One of Distil’s primary user bases are banks; at last count, the company had over 400 customers and was growing rapidly with 2.5x revenue growth per year.
The cybersecurity company raised $21 million in Series C funding last August from numerous funders, including Silicon Valley Bank, TechStars, Foundry Group and Bessemer Venture Partners. The previous year they raised another $21 million, bringing the total to $65 million across 2015-2016.
