In Besedo we all share the view that a cleaner Internet filled with less bad content leads to happier users and more prosperous businesses. Therefore, we made it into our mission to contribute to this by partnering with online companies in delivering superior user experience.

Brief company background

Besedo is a company specialized in User Generated Content moderation, Trust and Safety and customer care. Besedo is world leader in online Classifieds moderation and fraud/abuse management.

Besedo employs close to 300 people located across three operating centers, one in Stockholm (Sweden), one in Sliema (Malta) and one in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). We are open 24/7, 365 days per year and last year we monitored more than 70 million articles and currently serve clients across the world in 16 languages.
We are fully independent from all our clients and work actively with companies within several industries.

The Besedo Way

Expertise – We divide our teams of experts into different areas e.g. fraud & abuse, facilitation & hosting, context and counterfeit. They possess deep knowledge in subjects such as different commercial products and have extensive experience in all common threats affecting our clients’ websites ranging from typical online frauds to delicate abuse related issues.

Technology – Automated solutions, enhancements of manual processes and shared data through commercial networks are realities today and fully available tools. We have thoroughly tested and developed them since the beginning of UGC and constantly keep an eye out for the next coming solution.

Processes – 10 years experience in designing quality driven highly efficient workflows is unquestionably one of our key assets. Handling very large amounts of data requires the right process and the right training in order to be administratively viable. It involves all stages of hiring, training, planning, supervising and spotting discrepancies as well as highly sophisticated feedback loops man to man and man to machine.

The power of quality
The reason why we put so much emphasis on quality in everything we do is because we strongly believe there is a firm link between our clients‘ revenue potential and the quality of the online sites they are operating.
Over the years we have developed measurement of content quality into a core knowledge, based on five different layers which we believe to act deteriorating to the value of your site:

  • Illegal: Is the content illegal and if so, is the publisher liable?
  • Scam: Is the person behind the content attempting to actively deceive your users?
  • Abuse: Is the user misusing your service in order to get more exposure or avoid fees?
  • Irrelevant: Is the site easy to navigate or does it contain content not belonging there?
  • Inappropriate: Is the site content what your users are expecting to see?

Bots Endanger your Business

Bots are automated web crawling systems that are used to systematically attack or abuse web sites and their content. They imitate the activity of human users, methodically accessing and collecting data from web sites. Using bots, hostile entities – including hackers and unscrupulous competitors – can cause severe damage to your business using a variety of means:

  • Content scraping
  • Web-form spamming
  • Intellectual property theft
  • Account brute-forcing and hijacking
  • Denial of service and other automated attacks

Bots Endanger your Business

Bots are automated web crawling systems that are used to systematically attack or abuse web sites and their content. They imitate the activity of human users, methodically accessing and collecting data from web sites. Using bots, hostile entities – including hackers and unscrupulous competitors – can cause severe damage to your business using a variety of means:

  • Content scraping
  • Web-form spamming
  • Intellectual property theft
  • Account brute-forcing and hijacking
  • Denial of service and other automated attacks

The Solution: BotBlackBox

BotBlackBox is a powerful, innovative Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) designed to protect your valuable online assets by neutralizing traffic from hostile sources, while ensuring the highest quality-of-experience to legitimate users.

Web site owners using BotBlackBox have reported 3-5 percent revenue increase following BotBlackBox deployment, enhancing profitability by thousands and tens of thousands of dollars each month. BotBlackBox removes threats to your business, and preserves your reputation as it protects your customers from bot-initiated spamming.

Why BotBlackBox is the best solution

Unlike many other solutions, BotBlackBox is designed to deter the most sophisticated bot attacks. As bots take steps to pass or to bypass a challenge – for example, by utilizing captcha farms, creating new sessions, or changing IP addresses – they become more easily distinguished from real users, and can be immediately sanctioned by the web site.

BotBlackBox offers traffic analysis and performance seen until now only on expensive, hardware-based, in-line appliances. Its cloud-based heuristic engine and knowledge base continuously map internet threats without causing user annoyance or performance hits.
