DOTS IP Address ValidationSM is a real-time 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 detects the presence of proxies and provides the proxy type (private, public, anonymous, etc.) and flags potentially malicious IP addresses.
IP Address Validation also provides longitude and latitude, the Internet Service Provider (ISP), Network Owner and Host Names associated with the IP address. Due to the fluid nature of IP addresses, our global database of over 4 billion records is updated daily to ensure the most accurate results are delivered.
