Website classification

What is website classification?

Website classification is a process that takes a website, and translate it into one or two categories which best describes the website. For example CNN is news, Facebook is social networks.

Each industry has a different usage for website classification:

  • Parental control – Blocking age inappropriate websites and/or alerting the parent.
  • DLP (Data Leakage Prevention) – Blocking sites that allow for data exfiltration, like webmail or file hosting.
  • ISPs – Blocking sites where there’s a legal requirement, or use it internally for reporting and optimizations.
  • Antivirus – Blocking sites that pose a security risk.
  • Adtech – Can be used for both Brand safety and/or focused RTB bidding.
