Metacert aims to ensure that people are safe when clicking on links. Metacert has developed a thin API layer that can sit on top of these messaging apps and will check all https requests in real time. It will tell the user if the website link is safe to open. Metacert has one of the largest indexes of classified URLs containing over 10 billion. With their vast amount of data and machine learning techniques, they have managed to develop a tool that is highly effective at protecting users.
Metacert currently offers products for Slack, Hipchat, Skype and Messenger. It takes less than 30 seconds to install their software. It will then sit in the background making sure your chats are safe without affecting the normal functions of the app. Metacert provides packages that will cover crypto communities and companies through both public and private channels of communication. This is particularly important for ICO communities, as ICO’s have been under attack by many scams ranging from fake donation pages to malware.
Packages can be bought for slack with three different categories:
● Small teams (10 users) - 10 USD/month
● Growing Teams (15 users) - 15 USD/month
● Cryptocurrency Communities (100 users) - 25 USD/month
When a customer subscribes to the Metacert service, they are provided with a neat dashboard that will keep track of analytics. This is a useful tool for the customer as it can monitor activity in three different categories: Malware & Phishing, Pornography and Fake News.
