Stop Malicious Web Scraping

Arkose Labs Solution for Scraping

Arkose Labs prevents scraping by eliminating malicious automated traffic and undermining the ROI driving attacks.

Arkose Labs can accurately distinguish between human and automated traffic, and stop scraping attacks from achieving scale. It classifies traffic based on its origin and intent, and presents interactive challenges to higher-risk activity.

Automated scraping tools are adept at circumventing detection by obfuscating and randomizing device, network and IP characteristics. This is why Arkose Labs takes a zero-trust approach to the data being presented. It analyzes traffic based on intent and behavior using telltale signals which point to malicious activity.

Higher risk activity is presented with secondary screening using interactive challenges. Rather than blocking activity (which may turn out to be genuine), this approach allows legitimate humans to pass with ease, but the barrier is far too high for large-scale scraping. Context-based challenges are rendered in real time with countless permutations, meaning they are guaranteed to prevent unwanted automated traffic. This undermines the ROI and renders scraping economically non-viable.
