Luminati Networks has announced it rebranding from Luminati Networks to Bright Data. The change in the brand name is a reflection of its global momentum and its position as a market leader in web data collection.
If you are conversant with the proxy market, you will know that the Luminati (now Bright Data) is a force to reckoned with. It revolutionized the residential proxy service and invented the mobile proxy service. It also offers premium datacenter proxies and the new ISP proxies. One thing you cannot take away from Bright Data is its quest to reinvest, fine-tune, and improve its services.
While many know Luminati for their high-quality proxies, not many know that they are leaders in the aspect of data collection and as such, they are rebranding to get the perfect name for the service they offer. Bright Data has been around since 2014. Since its foundation, it has grown to be a household name in the proxy industry. It is used by more than 10K professionals who get data-set in minutes.
Reason for the Change of Name to Bright Data
According to the information provided on the Bright Data website, the service is rebranding because of the negative connotation associated with the brand name. Aside from the negative connotation, the service needs a name that reflects the service it renders as it translates from being just a proxy service provider but an all-around data collection infrastructure on the Internet.
