Network Administrator By Proxy

June 27th, 2010

Malevolent Internet websites really are a cornerstone of online criminal actions. Consequently, there’s been wide-ranging interest in creating methods to avoid the end user from going to such websites.

One answer to this growing concern is automated URL classification. This method uses statistical techniques to uncover the properties of malicious and malware website URLs. These techniques would be capable of understanding and analyzing signs of potentially suspect URLs with very few false positives.

Obviously, URL classification has enormous benefits to the network adminstrator. As an adminstrator, it is always frustrating when a network user exposes the system to a threat that the administrator would never allow if he were present. URL classification allows the administrator to have a proxy presence and deny the suspicious website automatically.
