Distil Networks, one of the global leaders in bot detection and mitigation and a sponsor of the PPW Conference in Lisbon, has announced massive upgrades to its Content Delivery Network, which it says will protect its customers - including property portals, against cyber attacks.
Edward Roberts, director of product marketing for Distil Networks, said the company's security upgrade will help property portals maintain their speed.
“Faster websites lead to a better customer experience and improved SEO, which is crucial in order to protect PageRank in an industry as competitive as real estate," Roberts said.
"Among Distil’s DDoS protection and bot defense capabilities — which protect forms from spam and fake registrations, thereby keeping web analytics clean and allowing brokers and agents to identify bonafide leads— the Distil Secure CDN provides the speed property portals need in order to maintain a reputation as an authoritative source of listing content in their respective markets.”
Rami Essaid, Distil's CEO, said the Content Delivery Network upgrade would protect websites in a number of ways.
“We understand that faster websites lead to improved SEO, increased conversion rates and happier users, which is why we are committed to providing a superior CDN to our global customer base,” Essaid said. “The Distil Secure CDN continues to be the fastest method for deploying our world-class bot defense platform, and now includes improved content acceleration and volumetric DDoS protection, all for one price.”
With a quick DNS change, customers can deploy Distil Bot Defense to deliver accurate protection from web scraping, account takeover, online fraud, spam, API abuse, skewed analytics, downtime and digital ad fraud. In addition, increased scalability allows users to offload heavy parts of their websites onto Distil’s 25 global servers, which meet PCI compliance standards.
