Global Categorization Database
URL Categorization database.
NetSTAR's inCompass® Web-Filtering SDK incorporates one of the industries largest and most comprehensive proprietary and professionally maintained master URL categorization databases in the world.
The focus of the categorization database is not to have every single web page on the internet categorized, but instead to categorize the most commonly requested sites and leave iCCE and BaCCE to dynamically rate changing content in real-time. The result is a proprietary database that coves over 1.5 billion pages residing in only 150 meg of ram.
Don't let the small memory footprint fool you. NetSTAR's inCompass Web Filter and Categorization Engines are robust and efficiently design, supports up to 25,000 lookups per second with a single incident of the engine running very minimal CPU and memory resources, suitable for even the most demanding of embedded environments as well as supporting robust enterprise appliance based solutions and environments.
To accomplish this, NetSTAR maintains and supports one the industries largest, and constantly trained, research teams working in tandem in one of the worlds largest research centers of its kind with the most advanced OEM categorization technology available on the market today.
As a result of intentional design database design and supporting technology integration, the inCompass categorization master database reflects the web as it today, with classifications that are current right now not years out of date with defunct or renamed URLs, or visited only on an annual basis.
The inCompass technologies by NetSTAR delivers the freshest, most up-to-date database categorization in the industry. Period.
NetSTAR can make this claim because inCompass doesn't relying solely on a database. In fact, NetSTAR views the purpose of a categorization database differently. With an every changing and growing internet, the explosion of web 2.0 and social media, and ever significant security threats of the internet, it is impossible to manually classify the entire web as well as keep that database up-to-date.
Since inCompass is a 4th Generation URL content filter the database, although extensive and one of the largest in the industry, is designed to focus on the most commonly request sites.
For other sites, whether new, less frequently visited, or part more complex e.g. web 2.0, inCompass utilizes real-time dynamic filtering iCCE and back-ground dynamic filtering BaCCE, to analyze and categorize within milliseconds providing no perceived latency to the user experience.
The inCompass technology suite accurately and effectively categorizes blogs, social networking , and other Web 2.0 sites that frequently have content changes, even between individual user requests.
Where other OEM vendors may never revisit a site, or do so annually or less frequently, or claim to have "dynamic filtering", only NetSTAR can categorize, and re-categorize, internet content in real-time.
