What do you like best?

The best part of being a partner of Distil is the team and the support that was provided to us from the start. On boarding was a breeze and had expected a much longer process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I haven't come across anything that I can say that I dislike about the service.. I have been with Distil for more than 2 years and have no complaints about it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try and the setup is very easy almost to easy and no down time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

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

What do you like best?

We spend a lot of time and money curating and advancing data on the social sector. Distil helps us protect the data from being scraped off of our web properties. We did not even realize the extent of the problem until we implemented Distil. It really opened our eyes.

We want our data to be used in ways that are consistent with our vision of the social sector, Distil helps us with that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. Our experience with Distil has been outstanding. They treat us like a Partner not a Customer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are still blocking web scrapers or bad bots by IP, you are fighting a losing battle. Distil fingerprints bots and will block them from any IP they come from. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were spending a lot of our engineering resources blocking bots and were experiencing service outages. With Distil's "set it and forget it" implementation we do not have to interrupt product development to block bots.

What do you like best?

There are lots of WAF solutions out there, but most bad bots are smart enough to beat simple WAF rules. Distil's solution is much smarter than a typical WAF. It leverages it's network of clients to help identify bad traffic. If an agent is bad for one site, it's probably bad on our site too. The network effect is something we simply can't do on our own. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I don't like about Distil's solution is that it required adding another reverse proxy. We chose to run the proxy inside of our own network to prevent adding another public network hop. But that took a bit of work to set up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We want to make sure bad bots are not crawling our site for a few reasons - (1) to ensure bots don't skew our metrics, particularly those metrics that we share with our customers (2) to ensure people do not try to steal the content from our site to use it in unauthorized ways (3) to reduce load on our system and to prevent badly behaving bots from causing performance issues for our users.

What do you like best?

The product protects our website from bots, 100% as advertised... and the product keeps expanding. We only use the block bot protection software right now, but they additionally have click-fraud protection, form-fraud protection and more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We did not realize how many bots were attacking our site until we started using Distil. Currently we have no problem or dislikes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As stated above, we did not realize how many bots were attacking our site until we started using Distil.

Now we know that our site is safe, with the reports from Disitl. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
