IT Security Specialist Sentor Launches in the U.S. With ScrapeSentry, Anti-Scraping Service

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/14 -- Leading European IT managed security services and anti-scraping solutions provider, Sentor, is continuing its international expansion by opening a U.S. office. The new office, located in Boston MA, will be managed by Gus Cunningham, who joins Sentor after six years as Chief Operating Officer with global DDoS mitigation firm Prolexic Technologies.

The new office will offer North American clients the highest levels of support and technical excellence in Managed Security Services, as well giving them access to ScrapeSentry, the leading anti-scraping solution.

Martin Zetterlund, Chief Operating Officer at Sentor, explains: "In one sense we are already a global company, as we have many existing international clients and have always offered around the clock service to all our clients, wherever their location. Opening an office now allows us to better meet the needs of the U.S. market and the increasing number of U.S.-based clients asking to work with us. "

As the first company to identify, define and develop a complete solution for web scraping, Sentor has been at the forefront of online security in Europe for the past 15 years.

Commenting on the opening, Gus Cunningham, USA Regional Manager, said, " We know the expectations of the North American region are high. Sentor has already signed some of the largest U.S.-based online brands, and it is now the right time to fully establish a local Sentor presence. We know there's a very high level of interest in our ScrapeSentry service and we look forward to adding to our U.S. client base in the forthcoming months."

Gus Cunningham concluded, "Like DDoS mitigation five or ten years ago, most companies either ignore the problem or get a false sense of security, believing that their existing technologies will handle the issue. But scrapers, adapt their techniques to work around those barriers. The hard truth is that to eliminate scraping you need a tremendous amount of processing power, analysis, and 24/7 skilled operators to stay ahead of the scrapers. Java script injection, rate limiting, CAPTCHAs, and geo blocking just don't cut it today."
