Cybersecurity Startup Expanding In Ballston
Cybersecurity firm Distil Networks is expanding its Arlington HQ by nearly 11k SF to accommodate company growth.
The company has signed on for a 15k SF lease at 4501 N Fairfax Dr in Ballston. Distil houses 28 of its 102 employees at its corporate offices and plans to add 80 total employees to its roster this year, with plans to double the HQ staff in the process.
Distil was founded in 2011 and specializes in web application security that blocks malicious bots from attacking its clients' websites. The planned layout at 4501 N Fairfax has built-in flexibility that will allow the firm to eventually house 100 employees on-site.
West, Lane & Schlager’s Andrew Genova and Brian Dickerson repped Distil. The duo has worked with Distil on multiple leases since the company’s founding in 2011.
