Learn about zvelo’s unique hybrid approach to web content categorization and malicious detection. With over 20 years of experience and partnerships with some of the world’s leading anti-virus, MSSPs, and communications companies—zvelo’s next-generation approach achieves industry-leading coverage and accuracy for end users worldwide.
zvelo offers industry leading URL classification services. zvelo collects, processes, and analyzes a continuous stream of URLs, representing the ActiveWeb traffic generated by its partner networks which service more than 600+ million end users globally. zvelo uses a proprietary AI-based URL classification engine to accurately categorize content, as well as detect objectionable, sensitive, malicious and phishing threats.
An internationalized domain name (IDN) homograph attack is a method of deceiving computer users about the remote computer they’re communicating with. It exploits the fact that many characters are homographs, meaning they look alike. Homographs allow a malicious party to create an IDN that appears very similar to an established domain, which can then be used to lure users to the new website.
In a previous blog, we explored the important differences between base domains and full path URLs. In this post, we wanted to take a step back and cover the basics—the individual structural elements of a URL (Uniform Resource Locator).
Over many years or testing, trial and error, zvelo ultimately determined that a human-machine “hybrid” approach to classification produced the best outcomes. The Human element provided the verifications necessary for the highest levels of accuracy, while machines (ie. AI/ML models and calculations) provided the scaling necessary to deal with the incredible volumes of new URLs and content being published at an increasing rate.
As discussed in a previous blog, DNS RPZ provides IT teams and network administrators with a “DNS configuration layer”, or rewrite module, to effectively handle DNS responses with the open source domain name system software, BIND.
zvelo Instant Protection (zIP) is a new feature designed to provide fast, up-to-the-minute updates on important category changes and real-time protection from newly identified blockable (adult, porn, hate, criminal, etc.) and malicious (malware, spyware, phishing, compromised, etc.) URLs.
In this week’s Embedded Insiders podcast, Rich Nass and Brandon Lewis welcome Jeff Finn, CEO of data categorization and security firm zvelo.
By Eric Watkins, Senior Malicious Detection Researcher at zvelo Earlier this month, I came across a use case that capitalizes on the value of full path content categorization. Before discussing this use case in detail, let’s go over the definition of a content distribution network (CDN) and also highlight a few key strengths of full…
The size and magnitude of the Malware and Ad-fraud bot problem is immense and growing. And, as bots continue to proliferate, there’s important distinctions to point out between Malware bots and Ad-fraud bots.
