Distil Networks, the global leader in bot detection and mitigation, announced its acquisition of Swedish managed security services provider ScrapeSentry, a spin-off of leading managed security firm Sentor. With the acquisition, Distil’s 24/7 managed security service will be available to mid-market and enterprise customers.
“Bots and scraper programs continue to cause serious problems for online business models. Together with Distil we will have a platform that we can use to provide protection for a broader audience and all customers will benefit from the unmatched strength of the joint development and research teams,” says Martin Zetterlund, the CEO of ScrapeSentry.
“ScrapeSentry’s experience in managed security services is a natural extension for Distil and we are thrilled to join the company’s team and mission to make the web more secure,” he continues.
ScrapeSentry, founded in 2006, was the world’s first anti-scraping solution to be developed to protect sites from the loss of Intellectual Property and data theft.
As one of the pioneers in the field, ScrapeSentry has worked with many global businesses, such as easyJet and Ladbrokes, and the company has offices in Stockholm, London and Boston.
