IP Compass internet categorization OEM solution

Filter Network Traffic Associated with Single and Multi-domain IP Addresses

Request Datasheet

ip/Compass delivers key information for single-domain and multi-domain IP addresses, including domain categories, IP reputation scores, geolocation data, and threat intelligence. NetSTAR identifies millions of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and references the hosted domains against more than 36 billion domains and URLs stored in our global database. Partners leverage ip/Compass for policy management, traffic analysis, threat intelligence, and other use cases.

Today, encrypted internet traffic far exceeds unencrypted traffic, and over 90% 0f internet traffic worldwide is reported to be HTTPS instead of HTTP. Depending on the encryption standard used, categorizing and filtering traffic cannot be accomplished by URL filtering alone. ip/Compass provides visibility into IP addresses and the domains they host.

Deploy ip/Compass locally via an SDK that supports Unix/Linux, FreeBSD, and Windows. Or deploy it via an API.
