Category Improvements Released!

Netsweeper has released updates to the categorization engine and training data-sets. The update includes improvements in the following languages: Arabic, English, French, German, Japanese, Persian, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese.

The following categories have been enhanced in the update:

Arts and Culture Gambling Matrimonial Portals Substance Abuse
Business Games Medication Real Estate Technology
Child Pornography General News Nudity References Travel
Criminal Skills Health Occult Religion Vehicles
Culinary Humor Pay to Surf Sales Weapons
Education Investing Peer to Peer Sex Education Web Chat
Entertainment Job Search Political Sports Web Proxy
Environmental Legal Pornography Streaming Media

Furthermore, the new translated templates for Somali, Bangla, Croatian, Estonian, Swedish, Irish, Norwegian, Thai, Bulgarian, and Traditional Chinese have not yet been enabled due to the fact that we are rigorously fixing the incoming false positives with the limited data set we have – but enablement is expected, so look for the announcement in the coming weeks!

As always the updates are seamless and no action is required by our customers to receive these enhancements, but you will or may notice an improved multi language categorization experience! If you have any questions or comments please feel free to reach out to Netsweeper Technical Support.
