New Capabilities are Now Available for All NetSTAR Partners
San Mateo, May 8 – NetSTAR, a global leader in URL, domain, and IP address categorization for the OEM market, has augmented the capabilities of their WebApp Compass solution. The WebApp Compass solution allows OEM partners to submit a URL or an IP address and receive the web/SaaS app name, the hostname, service name, and category associated with the web app. NetSTAR categorizes web applications across 150 categories. These categories include:
|File sharing/P2P||Communication||Google apps||Miscellaneous|
WebApp Compass deployment options include a local SDK, cloud-based API, and hybrid configurations.
New WebApp Compass capabilities, available now, include the following:
- All identified domains include an improved risk score based on improved algorithms
- A lookup return for an application comes with a secondary result which indicates any other applications that are found within the same domain. Specifically, when web app classification is performed on a hostname/bare URL (no path), if NetSTAR knows of other potential app matches for URLs found on the same host, our API will return a hasmore flag indicating that more applications exist, and a list of the applications that may be found upon this host
- Full support for regional domains or URLs such as example.com.uk for all popular cloud applications
OEM partners that track or filter traffic based on web applications are seeing increased value from the new capabilities of the WebApp Compass solution.
