Thwart Content Thieves with Anti Scraping Software
Anyone who owns a company, website or anything else wants people to see them and visit their websites. The problem is that you don’t really know who is visiting or what their intentions are, making it difficult for most companies. At Comodo, we understand your need for privacy and security, and as such, work hard to prevent memory scraping malware from finding its way onto your servers and into your devices.
You may not realize the potential for threats with your online content. Your website could be the spot where everyone is lurking, trying to find ways around anti scraping tactics you’ve employed.
What You Can Do
Of course, anti scraping software from us will be the best way to thwart these cyber criminals, but it isn’t the only thing you can use against them. For example, you can:
- Require logins to access your information
- Change markups regularly
- Embed your information in images
- Use Captchas
You can also stop posting information online, but that may not be possible if you regularly update your website and keep people up to date with all the goings-on of the company.
Anti scraping options can include logging on the website for access to the information therein. Don’t make it easy for criminals to find and steal your information. Public sites don’t require the scraper to identify itself, but if you require people to login first, they must include some identifying information to view the information. Therefore, you’ll be able to tell when requests are coming from the same person or same IP address and may be able to help you locate the user within the system.
Scrapers ultimately work by finding patterns in your markup, so if you change those site markups regularly, they won’t gain a foothold. If you’d like to learn more, please contact us today.
