IP blocking, spoofing or false data, rate limiting, identification, and observation are several methods websites utilize to restrict access to publicly available online information.
Competitive intelligence, market research, crime investigations and other business intelligence efforts often involve large-scale data collection activities. When harvesting is detected, websites sometimes restrict access to the site by rejecting requests sent by identified IP addresses. They may redirect those requests to sites containing misleading information.
When you route your scraping activities through ION, your IP address remains anonymous and unattributable to prevent blocking countermeasures. In simple cases, queries from automated harvesting tools are dispersed across thousands of anonymous IP addresses. For session-dependent queries, an unattributable IP address may be maintained for the duration of a session to enable deep web collections.
Ntrepid attribution control solutions are ideal when you are conducting online research and you prefer anonymity. Below are a few examples of where IP address control is useful. If malware or tracking cookies are also a concern, Nfusion can help.
Competitive information collection typically starts with the information found on company websites.
Scraping a site to automatically gather data is common practice, but is often blocked when it becomes apparent through your IP address that you are a competitor.
Ntrepid’s IP address attribution control solutions not only mask your company affiliation, but also help you avoid the scrutiny that happens when hundreds of queries are sent through a single IP address.
Counterfeit product sites, phishing schemes, intellectual property infringement...
