White Ops offers the world's first systematic solution for accurately isolating and eliminating bot-infected traffic. By applying the techniques of Side Channel Analysis across thousands of real-time user session variables, White Ops differentiates between a human and machine-driven request, across the full spectrum of impression and click fraud techniques -- regardless of the sophistication of the bot programmer. This approach is vastly more effective than methods generally employed by legacy fraud detection services, which rely largely on historical data and statistical and predictive analysis to detect bot activity. 

The White Ops solution is frictionless, invisible and massively scalable. White Ops' technology immediately detects and categorizes a bot even if that bot is behaving in a way never before seen, providing in-depth analysis to the customer while depriving malicious operators of valuable intelligence regarding how they failed or were detected. This, in turn, interferes with botnet operators' ability to adapt and evade, substantially raising the cost and effort of attempting further attacks.
