In the 11th addition of our Two-Minute Tips video series, we will show you how new URL filtering happens in action. Trace Request and Category Lookup are two diagnostic tools administrators can use to see how a new URL is categorized in the WebAdmin — the web application that manages the Netsweeper content filtering system.
Millions of new web pages are being posted every day around the world that need to be detected and categorized in real-time. This is necessary for staying up to date and keeping pace with the ongoing growth of the internet. “New URL” is a temporary category assigned to a URL that has not been categorized before.
Web pages are dynamically categorized and shared with all Netsweeper customers worldwide, every single day – actively adding to our categorization database and providing real-time protection against harmful online content.
