Scraping Risk Assessment
See What's Really Going on at Your Web Site with Scraping Risk Assessment
Companies in the business of maintaining large databases for public use are facing increasing problems with malicious web scraping. Are you one of them? Then there is a high risk that scrapers are downloading large amounts of data from your site by the minute, without you knowing it. With a Scraping Risk Assessment you can quickly learn if you are in the clear, or if you need to take countermeasures against web scraping.
In order to safeguard online companies from malicious web scraping, Sentor has developed the service Scraping Risk Assessment - a sharp tool for assessing the need to protect yourself from web scraping. As you read below how the service works, you will understand why scraping risk assessment can be an important tool in protecting your business.
A Scraping risk assessment is a good first step to do if you are thinking about or planning for an anti scraping system or service.
How Scraping Risk Assessment works
We load a period of log data from your web-servers into the ASSASSIN system. The data is replayed live in ASSASSIN, allowing the operators to analyse scraping events just as if it was real-time.
See scraping activity in real time
During the analysis you are given access to Sentor's Security Management Portal where you can download reports about scraping activity and general traffic at any time. This allows you to closely monitor the progress of your Scraping Risk Assessment. In the portal you can also get detailed information about every single scraping incident that occurred on your web site during the test period.
When the analysis is completed you receive a thorough report summarising all web scraping activity at the site, along with other kinds of abusive behaviour. This report may serve as a foundation for a thorough risk analysis of your web site, assessing the need to further protect your intellectual property. The report includes information about:
- General statistics of abuse of your web site
- Number of scraping incidents during the test period
- Estimated volume of data downloaded by web scrapers
