Web Filtering:
At business, home and public WiFi hot spots, users, children, teens and families need protection from the darker side of the web. A true web filtering solution requires a URL database and content categorization service that can immediately detect and block porn, adult-themed, hate, predator, criminal and other extreme sites, as well as malicious or compromised sites in real-time.

The zveloDB® URL database and exclusive contextual categorization engine and malicious detection systems provide extensive coverage of these malicious and inappropriate websites. zvelo receives billions of URL queries for categorization, including the millions of new URLs and websites that come online each day. These capabilities can be licensed by web filtering vendors to allow for the immediate and effective web filtering and blocking of access to the websites that are used by predators and hackers to lure unsuspecting visitors. Additionally, the high granularity of nearly 500 categories enables web filtering vendors to offer exceptionally flexible custom category mapping for policy management.
