By Telecom Lead Team: NetSTAR, a supplier of Internet
content filtering technologies, has enhanced its existing Cloud deployment
solution and will now call the solution inCompass Cloud.
The company claims that inCompass Cloud is the only 4th
generation content filter and provides a complete Cloud-based solution that
offers URL Filtering, Web-based security, as well as full group and user/device
level policy management.
The company said that inCompass Cloud allows
manufacturers of software as a service (SaaS), unified threat management (UTM)
systems, hardware security solution, software security solutions, managed
service providers (MSP and MSSP), ISPs, mobile operators and malware solution
providers to take advantage of the inCompass Cloud’s enhanced URL filtering
engine, instant content categorization engine (iCCE), backend content
categorization engine (BaCCE), CTRL technology, and policy management services
with minimal local resource requirements.
“Before the term Cloud was being used, NetSTAR was a
leader in the industry by providing a remote lookup service. inCompass Cloud
continues to provide this service as well as a rich set of URL filtering and
Web security features and policy management tools to our OEM partners,”
said Akira Nakayama, executive director of International Business for NetSTAR.
NetSTAR’s global deployment of Cloud data centers include
deployments in North America, South America, Asia/Pacific region,Japan,
and Europe, with more to be announced in the near future. Complete
fail-over and redundancy are built into the solution, both in each data canter
as well as the global infrastructure.
Last year, NetSTAR
announced the completion of a global licensing agreement with Mobile Active
Defense, a Smartphone security company.
Under the agreement, Mobile Active Defense provided
NetSTAR with their enterprise-grade smartphone security solution, the Mobile
Enterprise Compliance and Security Server (MECS).
