World’s biggest index
MetaCert is home to the world’s biggest index of classified URLs used to protect companies from malicious attacks and undesirable web content that’s not safe for work. Our index is broken into 65 categories. The ones we care most about are Malware & Phishing, Pornography and Fake News. The index is more than 10 billion URIs in size and the lowest error rat of false positives at just 0.3%.
URL Classification & Treat Intelligence
Only a handful of security companies own their own threat intelligence system – the rest license the data through an API like MetaCert’s.
MetaCert is one of the few companies that has built its own threat intelligence system and we built it because we felt that every filtering tool on the market blocks way too many innocent sites with a very high volume of false positives.
Our threat intelligence system in the best on the planet – by an order of magnitude.
To put it into perspective – OpenDNS (Cisco) has classified 2 million domains into 60 categories. MetaCert has classified over 7 million unique domains just for pornography – and we have 65 categories in our database. And because we’re the only company that can classify folders such as say.
Biggest Dataset of
Classified News Content
We added the news-related categories due to customer demand in 2017. We source our news data for News, Fake News, Alt-right, Far-left, Far-right and Satire from credible sources such as Snopes, Polifact, Buzzfeed and Melissa Zimdars.
After sourcing our credible data, we crawled and classified all of the social media accounts that they own - such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. No other company has done this so we are the first. That makes our index of news sites the worlds most extensive for reputational lookups.
