Why Cloud based URL filtering? Why do endpoints, gateways, and even home routers have "parental controls" built right in. To keep devices protected and uncompromised.
The bad guys are now operating on different and accelerated levels with tablets and smartphone, and url content filtering has "evolved" to real-time dynamic assessments. You need an OEM web filtering parter that can keep up.
An attacker may "test" the waters with legitimate content, or time-bomb an app, and many "traditional" gateway based solutions fail to correctly identify content traversing to or from the mobile device because the device connects from multiple sources.
The unique ability of the inCompass® by NetSTAR technology enables real-time url content filtering on content that is actually being delivered. Even HTTPS on 443 can be inspected in real-time. Common URLs can be checked and cached in the cloud where the ick stays and never makes it to your customers device. Building mobile security into your app at the mobile layer simply makes sense, and NetSTAR as your OEM partner makes even more sense because the URL is a mobile firewall. Click here to partner.
