Spoofed IPs have nowhere to hide

GeoGuard is a database of over 310 million IP addresses that contain both IPv4 and IPv6 address network ranges. Continuously updated, it detects and flags a wide range of anonymizers such as VPNs, proxy servers, Tor exit nodes, hosting providers, peer-to-peer networks, and Smart DNS Proxies.


VPN blocking at the flick of a switch

GeoGuard is pre-integrated with Amazon CloudFront and Akamai so you can simply “turn on” VPN and proxy detection to help stop geo-piracy. This pre-integration offers extra protection against more sophisticated forms of content piracy and helps save on bandwidth costs. GeoComply is a member of the AWS ISV Accelerate Program.

Unmask hijacked residential IPs

Pirate viewers are always finding new ways to bypass territorial restrictions. Their latest trick? Hijacked residential IP addresses. This allows them to sidestep VPN restrictions because streaming providers can’t risk blocking genuine users. GeoGuard differentiates between the good and the “bad” users.

Help block IP traffic from sanctioned regions

Regulators like the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) have highlighted how VPNs are used to evade sanctions. To protect your organization from compliance risks, OFAC recommends IP address blocking controls – like GeoGuard – as a sanctions compliance best practice.

Virtual currency companies should also consider monitoring transactions and users for risk indicators or “red flags” that may indicate a sanctions nexus. Examples of risk indicators may be individuals or entities who…attempt to access a virtual currency exchange from an IP address or VPN connected to a sanctioned jurisdiction.
