Ellipsis Technologies, a Greenville-based web security company, has released a new Shopify app to help online retailers combat form spam.

The app, called Shop Protector, allows websites to automatically detect human visitors and block unwanted traffic from bots, reducing the need for Turing tests – those codes, math problems, and puzzles that people must solve to prove they are human.

“We developed the Shop Protector technology to solve the problems that our e-commerce clients had experienced using traditional techniques to detect bot traffic,” said Bill West, CEO of Ellipsis Technologies.
