The #1 Choice for Superior Anti-Piracy Control

Guardian, our flagship product, includes a suite of products that uniquely target piracy and together comprise the most comprehensive piracy solution in the market. Our solution combines superior web crawling technology with a trained professional services team to detect pirated copies of your works, facilitate removal of unauthorized copies, and ensure that piracy does not recur. Guardian is used by the largest publishers in the world, including Macmillan, Harper Collins, Kensington, Simon & Schuster and Wiley and Sons. The product is used by more than 50 publishers as well as individual authors.

The Guardian Suite

The Guardian suite was developed specifically for publishers to address each component of the content ecosystem: supply, distribution and demand. The Guardian suite provides a unique and comprehensive protection solution, including detection, source analysis and content removal services that far surpass other industry offerings.

Guardian’s massive crawling infrastructure provides unparalled coverage across all geographies including thousands of websites, cyberlockers, P2P and other hosting sites. As pirated copies are discovered, they are verified by trained professionals and takedown notices are automatically sent to the site. Removal notices are tracked for site compliance and monitored to ensure that unauthorized content does not reappear. Guardian addresses the entire content ecosystem to eliminate infringement - from the publisher to the end user.

Guardian New Release
The unauthorized distribution of eBooks can significantly reduce sales during the critical weeks around title release. Attributor is the only company that offers a service which addresses this issue directly. Guardian New Release starts monitoring for infringement of your new title releases two weeks before they are officially released and continues for two weeks after the release.  In addition to the intensive web-crawling activities, known piracy feeder and seed sites are manually checked on an hourly basis by Attributor trained professional services staff.

Guardian Author Portal
In an effort to make reporting infringements easy and timely, the Guardian service provides authors with a web interface to directly report incidents of infringements. Inputs to the portal are immediately researched and if the infringement is verified, a takedown notice is sent. The portal allows Attributor to follow up on your requests more quickly and provide you with better information about your infringement history. Users have access to infringement reports on a real-timer basis.

Guardian Forensics
Guardian Forensics provides publishers the next level of analysis into how books are actually being infringed. The service provides an in-depth look at information gathered from downloaded files to determine the details of book infringement, including specific assets being copied, the manner of reproduction, the source of the copied files, and the file format.  Guardian Forensics can help determine which channels are pirated the most and answer questions about how the unauthorized use is occurring.
