Avanan's Click-Time Protection URL Format is now simpler, shorter and its domain is different

When a URL is replaced by Click-Time Protection, it is wrapped by the Click-time service domain and an encrypted blob, so that every time a user clicks on the link, the website behind the link is inspected by the Avanan security engines.

These links will now be generated in a slightly different and enhanced format.

The new format is: https://url.avanan.click/v2/___<originalurl>___<encrypted blob>

The main changes are:

  • The original URL is surrounded by underscores, making it easier to read

  • Overall shorter URL

  • New domain - url.avanan.click

The new format (V2) will now become the default format for every new portal and for portals that never replaced links via Click-Time Protection. 

Administrators can select between the old format (V1) and the new format (V2) under Configuration -> Security Engines -> Click-Time Protection -> Configure  

Note - this feature is now gradually deployed and will be available in your portal in the next week.
