It’s a completely different and remarkably revealing perspective on your users, delivered in highly intuitive visual charts and backed by detailed supporting data capturing a full month of user interactions.
GeoAnalytics Reporting uncovers critical patterns and trends involving your users that you may never have seen before, with important use cases in a range of applications spanning multiple business functions.
Let me show you what I mean. This GeoAnalytics Reporting chart breaks down the top 10 countries for user device IPs.
Usage by Worldwide Country
You can instantly see how this information could raise important questions for your enterprise. Did you know you had so many users in Asia? Can you serve them effectively? Do any of these sources present a risk from the perspective of compliance, licensing or fraud prevention?
With GeoAnalytics Reporting, you have hard data to help answer these questions, and act accordingly.
The data behind the insights. GeoAnalytics Reporting aggregates user data from UltraGeoPoint – the authoritative source for independent, instantaneously available insights about website or network visitors based solely on the IP address of their device.
The insights are derived from a robust and highly accurate geolocation database that covers 99.99% of all routable IPv4 and IPv6 addresses worldwide. It is supported by a global data collection network and curated by specialized, experienced Network Geography Analysts, who ensure it is updated and tested continuously to deliver the most current and accurate decisioning data.
UltraGeoPoint includes multiple data points on the geographic location of an IP address, including county, state, city and, in some cases, postal code. In addition, it captures important and useful information about how each device connects to the Internet – also incorporated in GeoAnalytics Reporting, as in these examples:
Top 20 Organizations
This chart depicts the organizations that are responsible for user IPs, including ISPs, government agencies, businesses, educational organizations and VPN providers. It provides useful insights into the entities that connect your users to your services. You can immediately see which organizations, if any, represent a majority of the IPs you have queried. Do you expect to see one organization responsible for most of your traffic, or a relatively equal representation across organizations? Are most of your users connecting from IPs allocated to an educational institution, a government agency, or a well-known ISP?
Beyond these questions, this chart can also help you evaluate if your users are more likely to be connecting from a professional or home setting. By understanding the network environments and institutions your users favor, you can both provide valuable information to your IT team and better understand your users.
For many businesses, this chart will be invaluable. It shows the status of anonymizing connections used to reach your website. The percentages in the chart focus only on those users with anonymizing connections, recording the percentage for each status – including suspect anonymizers that should raise alarms. The supporting data also includes the number and percentage of users whose anonymizer status could not be determined or who are not using one.
GeoAnalytics Reporting covers seven different dimensions of your traffic, including three with geographic data – country, state and city – and four different aspects of user connections. See examples of all seven here.
Each report captures a full month of user traffic. You can choose to create reporting for any of the previous three months, making it easier to identify and track trends over time in your traffic.
