Commtouch GlobalView URL Filtering categorizes user URL requests in the following manner:

  • The GlobalView URLF engine is installed on DrayTek devices.
  • DrayTek device receives an http request.
  • DrayTek device queries the GlobalView server to check the URL classification. The GlobalView URL engine first checks its local cache for URL values; typically more than 99% of queries are locally resolved by the cache.
  • If necessary, the GlobalView URLF engine queries the Commtouch Detection and Classification Center for relevant updates.
  • DrayTek device blocks, allows or strips content according to the class classification it receives from the GlobalView URLF engine.
