How IBM X-Force Exchange Software Development Kit works

Provides access to a URL and IP filter database

The X-Force Exchange SDK database contains more than 130 million entries with more than 25 billion evaluated web pages and images. Evaluated web pages and images are indexed into 73 categories, including gambling, phishing and malware. Clients receive notifications that contain nearly 150,000 updated and newly categorized websites daily. The filter technology covers 45 languages and 250 countries.

Enables profiling on web applications

Web application profile technology analyzes websites in depth to provide insights on the application. The software recognizes the URL semantics of web applications to enable administrators to disallow certain activity on web-based applications. Actions for web application include audio/video chat, share, software updates, opening an app, stream/download, and write/post/chat.

Enables integration

API enables you to categorize URLs, define web application policies and configure other filtering capabilities. A software licensing system handles subscription expiration and generates demonstration tickets.

Access an API through your favorite programming language

IBM X-Force Exchange Node SDK (XFE Node SDK) makes it easy to supplement your existing workflows in Node.js with the IBM X-Force rich threat-intelligence data without having to know how the REST APIs work. XFE Node SDK is well documented and means an even lower barrier of entry to get you hooked up to the IBM X-Force Exchange. XFE Node SDK is open source and is freely available under the Apache 2 License.
