To collect data for the Desktop Software and Mobile Software risk vectors (endpoint data), we partner with large content providers that serve content in websites across the Internet. Cookie information is gathered from a large, global network of ads on websites.
This content is encountered during the course of normal web-browsing activity. Our partners provide us with the user-agent string from endpoint clients that are loading the content, which includes information about the operating system, the device name (for mobile), browser information (IP address and cookie data).
- Data is identified by IP address, and not specific users.
- The projected number of users is based on the number of distinct cookies with a unique pair of browser and operating system versions.
- Software support status is based on the latest known published versions. Internal records are updated on a weekly basis.
