URL Database to provide rapid awareness of phishing and malicious sites for superior reputation awareness
San Mateo, California – May 29, 2012 – NetSTAR Inc, the global leader in high-quality OEM internet URL content filtering technologies, announced today that inCompass Cloud and SDK architecture will support and incorporate malware, phishing, and malicious site telemetry data enabling immediate protection from phishing sites, one-click fraud, and malware sites. Malware protection requires unique and special considerations and expertise due to the rapidly changing nature of cybercrime. Existing OEMs will automatically receive this augmented protection and URL data feeds starting at the end of May.
