With this URL Reputation API you can detect potentially phishing and malicious URLs.
We deeply analyze the URL (including the URL content, URL pattern, domain name, HTTP headers, domain TLD, etc) using thousands of smart internal rules to detect potentially malicious URLs. Useful to block suspicious URLs sent via emails or to get detailed threat information about an URL.

We use smart rules to detect suspicious URLs, i.e we detect masked PE (EXE) files, suspended web pages, EXE files on free dynamic DNS domains, suspicious domain names, countries of origin, suspicious URL patterns, phishing URL content (heuristic scan) and so on!
With this URL Reputation API you can get very useful URL information data, such as HTTP response headers, HTTP status code, page title and meta description, website category (cyber threat related categories), server IP address and geolocation, DNS NS and MX records, URL parts (host, port, path), etc.
This API can be used to block suspicious URLs present in emails, enrich your SIEM or threat intelligence platform with additional URL information data, get the reputation score of an unknown URL and better identify potentially phishing and malicious URLs.
We perform some unique checks on URLs, for example, we can intelligently detect an uncommon clickable URL that is, in shorts, an URL that should never be clicked if present in emails, in hyper-links or in other mouse-clickable elements.
The URL risk score is a number between 0 (safe) and 100 (dangerous) based on the results of our URL analysis checks. The risk score can better help you spot potentially dangerous URLs more easily. A high risk score (i.e 80) means the URL may be potentially dangerous and a low risk score (i.e 20) means the URL may be safe.
We can detect the website category, which include URL shortening services, free hosting providers, free dynamic DNS domains, VPN providers, web-based proxy services and torrent websites. Useful to identify shortened URLs or free hosting domains.
