When aggressive scrapers caused slowdowns on iCruise.com, Antoine Zammit, VP of technology at its parent company WMPH Vacations, said enough was enough.
Distil Networks is a bot detection and mitigation specialist. It works with some of travel's biggest names such as Sabre, Skyscanner, Amadeus and Lufthansa as well as specialist operators of scale, such as WMPH.
In a tnooz workshop which took place this week, Elias Terman, Vice President of Marketing, Distil Networks gives a data-driven overview of the current state of the bad bot landscape, the recent shift of bad bot activity to mobile and new bot-driven scams such as spinning.
Antoine Zammit goes on to present a case study outlining how badly were hammering his web sites and the many benefits which using Distil to beat the scrapers brought to the business, including more leads, better conversions, improved site speed and a better experience for customers and partners.
