Stop fraud and abuse.

Spur provides tools and data to detect VPNs, Residential Proxies, and Bots. See why we are the industry leader in tracking hostile infrastructure and reducing fraud.

Combat the fake internet

Bots, scrapers, and other automations use anonymization services to fake residential connections. Spur tracks these connections so that you can identify when anonymization services are touching your website, application, or network.

Where Spur Excels:



We attribute the infrastructure of over 800 different VPN and Proxy providers. Use our Context API or Data Feeds to get IP Addresses, entries, exits, and more.



Our Monocle JavaScript plugin detects interactions from automated systems, bots, malware, headless browsers, and other fake users.



We track the infrastructure for over 50 residential proxy services in real-time. Discover and thwart scaled campaigns against your service.

Identify Tradecraft

Threat actors escalate tradecraft based on the defenses they encounter. Using Spur to protect your digital properties increases the cost to attackers and typically forces them on to the next target instead. Increasing the cost to attack your network or application reduces the number of actors willing to invest the resources.

As the difficulty to detect a service increases, so does the price for a threat actor to use it. More sophisticated threat actors can leverage higher tier infrastructure when necessary.

Throwaway IPs range from cheap to expensive. Force an attacker to use the most expensive forms of anonymization to even attempt an attack against your network or services.
