Real-Time Malware, Miscategorization, Terrorism, & Porn Protection Extended to zveloDB
An Overview of zveloDB Instant Protection (zIP)
zvelo Instant Protection (zIP) is a feature designed to provide fast, up-to-the-minute updates on important category changes and real-time protection from newly identified blockable/objectionable (adult, porn, hate, criminal, etc.) and malicious (malware, spyware, phishing, compromised, etc.) URLs. While SDK integrators of the zveloDB™ URL Categorization Database have always been protected from these URLs, local SDK database updates were not immediate, and were delivered once daily from the zveloNET cloud. zIP eliminates this delay so that all local SDK URL databases receive important URL category changes from the zveloNET cloud in a matter of seconds versus waiting for the next database build.
These important category changes were prioritized into four priority bands within the zveloDB – URL Database, which include:
- New Malicious Detection: A URL category change because of a malicious detection
- Safety Update: A URL category change from malicious to a “safe” security reputation
- Miscategorization Update: A URL category change due to a reported miscategorization
- Objectionable Update: A URL category change to an objectionable or highly blocked category
