The Avira URL Cloud uses a simple RESTful JSON API to allow you to query if a website hosts malicious content in the moments between clicking a link and arrival on that site. Avira URL Cloud enables you to protect your customers without interfering with their web browsing experience.
Categorising more than 300,000 new URLs daily, the Avira URL Cloud uses a variety of sources including honeypots, industry partners, enquiries from the Avira sensor network and the source address of malicious binaries reported by the Avira Protection Cloud.
Hundreds of millions of URLs are already classified as containing malware, phishing, malicious search engines, or Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUA). Over its operational life, the Avira URL Cloud has already responded to billions of enquiries.
Simple to deploy, AUC reports that a URL is either blacklisted (it contains Malware, Phishing or Spam), that it contains Potentially Unwanted Applications or Potentially Malicious Search Engines, or that the URL is clean and safe.
