zvelo’s OEM Partners will benefit from increased website categorization accuracy and coverage
Greenwood Village, Colorado – July 12, 2011 – zvelo, Inc., a leader in URL database (zveloDB® ), website categorization and zero-hour malicious website detection solutions for the OEM market, has announced full categorization support for Russian, German and Czech language websites. zvelo’s dynamic, real-time automated content categorization and malicious website detection support for these languages complements and expands zvelo’s already impressive list of supported languages.
zvelo’s exclusive technology for identifying and categorizing ActiveWeb site URLs, combined with quality assurance provided by its team of over 150 multi-lingual Web Analysts, ensures 99.99% coverage and excellent accuracy for those websites visited by users.
“Our automated categorization systems have now been certified to the exceptional level of accuracy we demand across the full set of over 140 categories for Russian, German and Czech language websites,” explains David Duncan, zvelo’s Vice President of Engineering. “The direct benefit to our OEM Partners and their user communities is that the speed at which we are able to categorize pages in those languages increased dramatically – leading to quicker response times for the categorization of new URLs and both broader and deeper coverage of Russian, German and Czech websites. We are continuing to focus our development efforts on the markets and languages being targeted by our OEM Partners for growth.”
In addition to developing additional language categorization support on an ongoing basis, zvelo performs weekly coverage and accuracy checks of the Alexa Global 1 million URLs, as well as accuracy verifications of the Alexa lists in over 25 of the leading markets and languages. Interested OEMs that offer reputation filtering, parental controls, SMB and enterprise content filtering, analytics, and online ad vetting/reporting solutions may request a free evaluation of the zveloDB with on-disk SDK or cloud deployment options.
zveloNET is zvelo’s distributed network for the real-time detection, inspection, categorization and verification of ActiveWeb sites (the areas of the web users are actively visiting) collected from its OEM Partners’ global user community. zveloNET consists of a globally distributed network of real-time categorization systems, including AutoCat, multilingual quality assurance teams, the zveloLABS® organization dedicated to anti-malware research, and the ever-growing community of OEM Partners’ users.
