IP Address Geolocation with Confidence Area and Hazard Report API
IP address intelligence plays a vital role in cyber security by allowing businesses to perform various checks on IP addresses. With the rise in VPN/proxy services, online scammers have become comfortable hiding their identities when committing fraud. The technology used by hackers is getting refined, and it is harder to detect with just the reactive measures of blocklisting IP addresses. BigDatacloud IP geolocation API services can provide more proactive metrics to tackle global online cyber crimes and reduce their impact.
This API endpoint provides a critical security report of an IP address. It is an extension of the IP Address Geolocation with Confidence Area API, making it the most comprehensive IP address intelligence API offering.
The additional data object is called hazardReport, which contains 15 security signals. The hazard report provides conventional reactive and our highly innovative proprietary proactive metrics. The API also offers a textual summary of these 15 security vulnerabilities associated with the IP address, called a securityThreat.
You will find more information about the hazard report on our dedicated Hazard Report API page.
You may use our User Risk API page if you are looking for a more simplified security API.
