URL lookup API enables quick and easy integration of web intelligence into security products, incident response workflows and productivity tools

MCLEAN, VA/ACCESSWIRE/December 7, 2021/ Today, Cyrene (NASDAQ: CYRN), a provider of email security and threat intelligence solutions, announced the expansion of its Threat Intelligence Services product line to include a cloud-based programmatic interface to the web categorization engine of Cyren. The new offering gives security researchers and product managers easy access to Cyren’s URL classification cloud to identify unwanted and malicious web content.

The Internet permeates every aspect of our professional and personal lives, including web threats. To protect users and organizations from legal risks related to inappropriate content and cyber risks from threats such as phishing and ransomware, product managers, software developers and security researchers/analysts need accurate and timely categorization of web content. Ultimately, the success of solutions and efforts depends on fast and accurate categorization of web content to ensure superior user experience and effective threat response.

Cyren’s web security engine delivers the most relevant web coverage, uncompromising accuracy, and real-time security, all delivered from a low-latency, high-accuracy cloud architecture. The Cyren URL Classification Cloud processes over a billion URLs every day by analyzing web and email traffic globally. It combines machine learning, heuristics, and human analysis to provide real-time visibility with few false positives. URLs are categorized into 84 categories, including 13 security categories for web threats such as phishing and malware. Cyren technology and intelligence are already used by global cloud service providers and cybersecurity brands around the world.

“Cyren’s new URL Discovery API makes it easy to integrate URL categorization to enforce worker productivity policies, parental controls, and block web threats,” said Isaac Dvir, Senior Vice President of engineering at Cyren. “Adding this cloud-based option to Cyren’s line of innovative threat intelligence products opens up new markets for Cyren technology and reduces the time and effort required for our organizations to realize the value of our technology.”
