It is estimated that counterfeiting costs the United States alone 600 billion dollars worth of damage annually according to INC. With an increase of developing nations being able to manufacture, that number keeps climbing. This does not include intellectual property theft which is usually the very start of the manufacturing process. Brand protection services use Proxy Empires residential and mobile proxies to thwart theft in all of its forms.
Intellectual Property Theft
Patents are rarely honored in developing nations and trademarks are not taken seriously. Ideas are only an asset to a company if they can be protected and exclusively acted on. The problem is that most of this nefarious behavior is done globally and out of reach of a corporate office. A group of employees cannot manage intellectual rights with a small network.
Vast Residential Proxy Network
Brand protection agencies and legal teams utilize Proxy Empires' broad network that reaches across 150 countries and six continents to have the capability to monitor intellectual property theft so that they can act on it. Because our network is organic it can be used across all platforms to scan for intellectual property theft, empowering their legal case.
A supply chain is only as good as a brand it is building and if unregulated entities copy a brand in the process of counterfeiting it can damage your rate of return dramatically. Because these companies hide behind a cloak of anonymity it can be hard to track down who is responsible and where the responsible party is located. So, they win because corporations have a lack of usable data.
With Proxy Empire, brand management services are leveraging our network to target an industry's market and scrape data that will visually show where a company’s brand is being used inappropriately or completely being ripped off. Residential proxies are more than sufficient at being able to gather data that will give a company insight into where their brand stands.
There are simple tools available to check how the public is responding to a company's brand, but they fail on a global scale where a company may have a great reputation in say Canada and a horrible reputation in Hong Kong SAR. The reality is those tools do not scale efficiently and that leaves corporations in the dark.
Reputation Awareness With Proxy Empire
With a large network and GEO-targeting, reputation management firms are tracking the reputation of their clients globally and specifically gathering data regionally, now being able to fine-tune their data acquisition ambitions to a targeted location. This allows companies to know how the public feels about them in different regions around the world.
Reputation management firms struggle to gain access to certain countries on a scale that makes an impact, and it is those very regions that facilitate counterfeiting and copyright infringement. Not being able to access those locations reduces the effectiveness of negating intellectual property theft.
GEO-location Data Mining
Unlike overly simplistic tools, Proxy Empires network has the scalability and access reputation management companies crave to mine data where it counts. Because our network is organic in nature, it can be used without throwing up red flags which is typical with data center proxies.
