Backed with industry-leading internet categorization technology and telemetry data from over 1.4B endpoints worldwide, inCompass has analyzed and categorized over 36 billion URLs at the domain, path, and page-level across the globe and is continuously updated as new domains and sites come online. inCompass also addresses encrypted traffic and retrieves categorization, threat intelligence, and key metadata from that encrypted traffic.

inCompass uses proprietary categorization technology and processes to deliver exceptional value. Coupled with machine learning-driven AI, inCompass is context aware through comprehensive sentiment analysis, entity recognition, and topic modeling. Over 250 content analysis engines review text (in more than 200 languages) and images for URL categorization. Worldwide human review teams also perform physical website inspections to ensure accuracy and cultural relevance.

inCompass categorizes the full-path of a URL with a primary category and optional secondary and security categories. Partners can use the default 200+ NetSTAR content categories, the IAB 2.0 taxonomy, or develop custom categories of their specification across a wide variety of use cases. inCompass can be deployed locally via an SDK, as a cloud-based solution, or as a hybrid solution with options for seed DB dimensioning.
