Ellipsis Technologies announced a partnership with San Francisco-based Convesio, the premier hosting platform for WordPress site owners and agencies. With this partnership the Ellipsis Human Presence ™ security plugin will be included with the Convesio service. The Human Presence ™ technology was specifically designed for WordPress and includes invisible bot detection and prevention with a special focus on combating form spam for WordPress site owners.
The Convesio WordPress hosting platform is the first self-healing, autoscaling, platform-as-a-service for creating and managing WordPress sites. In addition to speeds averaging over 200% faster than other WordPress hosting options, the Convesio platform includes 24/7 support and site monitoring, speed and performance optimization, page speed optimization and a wide variety of other unique support tools.
“We see bot detection and mitigation as critical features for WordPress site owners and the Human Presence technology is the best I have seen on the market.” said Tom Fanelli, CEO of Convesio.
The Human Presence ™ technology now included for all Convesio users is a web security software technology that enables website owners to invisibly validate the presence of human visitors to their sites while flagging and deflecting traffic from automated and often malicious “spambots.” With the Human Presence™ solution, WordPress site owners can eliminate the need for testing human visitors, thus improving the user experience while taking positive action to prevent form spam.
The Human Presence™ plugin currently supports Gravity Forms, Ninja Forms, WordPress Comments, WooCommerce Reviews, Formidable Forms, and Contact Form 7. Ellipsis is planning to add more forms support over the next few months.
As Ellipsis CEO Bill West explains: “We developed the WordPress Human Presence™ technology to solve the problems that site owners had experienced using traditional techniques to detect bot traffic. Our approach is unique in that it focuses on modeling human behaviors, rather than just spotting bot markers to clearly identify a human presence on the site. We are thrilled to be aligned with Convesio and have our form spam prevention solution available to all Convesio users. Convesio is rapidly emerging as the dominant technology in the WordPress hosting space and we are proud to work with them to support their customers.”
About Ellipsis Technologies:
Ellipsis is a software technology company headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina that has developed a proprietary web security technology, Human Presence™, which allows a website owner to invisibly detect human site visitors while quarantining all suspicious visitors or bots.
Convesio was founded in 2018 to provide agencies and enterprises a platform for hosting scalable, secure WordPress sites without the complexity of traditional cloud providers.
Traditional hosting has not evolved to embrace the latest technology, and design agencies struggle to find scalable, high performance hosting. Cloud infrastructures are costly, complex and out of reach for most agencies.
To solve these problems we had to rethink hosting from the ground up, leveraging the latest technology, infrastructure, and development methods. The result is a multi-tiered system architecture that removes all of the single points of failure associated with WordPress and scales as needed at each layer of the system.
Websites on Convesio outperform traditional hosting providers, reducing the amount of client complaints. We simplify complex hosting processes, providing a high availability, secure and scalable platform for client websites and streamlined workflows for agencies. Lastly, we enable agencies to differentiate hosting and use it as a true selling point while maximizing hosting profits.
