Geoblocking is a practice that restricts access to content based on the geographic location of a user. This digital segregation can prevent people from accessing websites, services, or content based on their physical location. While businesses may use geoblocking to comply with licensing agreements and local laws and regulations, it can also limit access to customers and markets in other countries, making it harder for companies to expand globally and compete with local businesses. Infatica helps businesses overcome these challenges by providing a wide network of residential proxies ethically sourced worldwide from regular people who have given consent to contribute.

For most businesses, expanding globally is a key goal. However, achieving this ambition can be challenging. One significant hurdle that businesses may face is geoblocking, a practice that restricts access to content based on the geographic location of a user. In other words, it is a form of digital segregation that prevents people from accessing websites, services, or content based on their physical location.

Geoblocking is often used by companies to comply with licensing agreements, local laws, and regulations. For example, a streaming service may have the right to stream certain content only in specific countries, so it utilizes geoblocking to prevent users outside of those regions from accessing the content.

However, geoblocking also limits access to customers and markets in other countries, making it harder for companies to expand globally and compete with local businesses. It can be challenging to bypass geoblocking and access data that helps aggregate prices, perform search engine optimization, conduct marketing research, and manage digital advertising. Today, any company heavily relies on data to be efficient, but it’s not easy to collect it, especially if operating in more than one country.

The Problem with Free Proxies and VPNs

To get around geoblocking, businesses may turn to free proxies or VPNs, but these solutions aren’t fully ethical and can’t provide high-quality data. Besides, they are slow and have a lot of limits. For instance, a VPN service grants access to a bunch of countries, not all of them. In addition, VPNs don’t let you reach out to particular regions and cities.

Moreover, these solutions don’t protect data which is critical for a business. After all, companies often have to store sensitive information about their users like credit card details. As a result, these solutions are not reliable enough to serve businesses’ needs.

Infatica’s Ethical Solution

Infatica provides an ethical solution to geoblocking challenges through a network of residential proxies sourced from regular people who have given their consent to contribute. The company was founded in 2019 by a group of engineers who were enthusiastic about erasing borders within the World Wide Web for those who want to do good.

Unlike VPN services and free proxies, residential proxies can’t be easily detected as a means to bypass geoblocking, which makes them a reliable option. Infatica provides clients with a wide network of residential proxies ethically sourced worldwide from regular people who are fully aware of their participation and have given consent to contribute. Peers allow using their devices to be proxy providers and get rewarded for that.

To guarantee blacklisting protection, Infatica ensures smart rotation and a strict anti-abuse policy. Today, the company successfully processes more than 300 million requests per day. Meanwhile, ten million real IPs provide flexibility and a wide reach. In combination with end-to-end data encryption and high speed, it makes Infatica a powerful tool for businesses.

How Businesses Benefit from Infatica

Today, almost any business relies on the internet and seeks high-performance proxy solutions to be efficient and fast. However, since every company is different, it’s essential that Infatica’s proxy network is customizable to meet the needs of businesses of different sizes and industries.

Infatica’s customers already use the service for various purposes, including social media management, marketing research, price aggregation, and corporate data protection. They can access proxies located in the US, Germany, Poland, China, India, Turkey, Brazil, and many more countries.

To make the user experience even smoother, there’s a convenient dashboard that allows easy proxy management. If there’s any difficulty, Infatica provides tech support.

Infatica Plans to Evolve

Since society is becoming more globalized and more businesses strive to grow internationally, geoblocking is an obstacle to exploring international markets and opportunities. Simultaneously, today, more companies strive to be ethical. VPN services and free proxies aren’t the solutions for them, to overcoming the issue. 

The Infatica mission is to help businesses overcome geoblocking and erase borders within the World Wide Web with their novel residential proxy solution. Infatica is planning to add more products to its ecosystem. The company is working on projects related to cybersecurity, app monetization, and data extraction. It’s determined to motivate the web to wear more white hats more often by serving the ideals of an open and ethical internet.
