The service provides a programmable XML interface for detecting web visitors routine requests through any type of proxy server, which often indicates attempts to circumvent blocks on traffic from particular locations or addresses. This fraud detection function alerts e-commerce applications to traffic with origins masked, helping to avoid costly chargebacks and other bad results of online frauds.
API methods support submission of a requesting IP address discovered in the header of an HTTP request. The service then checks on the authenticity of that address and returns status information indicating whether or not it involves redirection through a proxy, based on a database updated hourly of proxy IPs.
