One of Spartan Spark’s biggest advantages over their competitors is their proactive approach towards preventing website hackers. Competitors’ custom solutions often skip implementing intensive security features because they take significant time to develop and customers aren't usually concerned with security, or are unaware of the consequences, until their security has been compromised.
Spartan Spark's proactive approach led them to start tracking the location of hackers initiating website abuse. Each time one Spartan Spark's specialized security measures fails, it is automatically sent as an “abuse log” to the security system administrator and all the captured information is logged, including tracking the location of the hacker through their “supposed” IP address. The administrator noticed a trend in the countries where spam and hacking were originating from, and began limiting traffic to Spartan Spark's clients’ websites based on IP addresses from a small subset of countries (eg. China, Russia, etc.), enabling them to reduce their patterns of abuse by almost 85%.
