Detects proxies & proxy type

DOTS IP Address ValidationSM is a real-time, web service API that identifies the location and device type of an Internet Protocol (IP) address anywhere in the world. Companies use this service to cross-reference the location of a visitor's IP address against other data points, including billing and shipping addresses, to flag possible fraudulent transactions for review. The service also detects the presence of proxies and provides the proxy type (private, public, anonymous, etc.) and flags potentially malicious IP addresses.

This service also provides longitude and latitude, the Internet Service Provider (ISP), Network Owner and Host Names associated with the IP addresses. Due to the fluid nature of IP addresses, our database of over 4 billion records, is updated daily, to ensure the most accurate results are delivered.
