SMTP Cross Verification completed!
Feb 22 6:32 2017 PST
Using SMTP Cross verification against publicly accessible Web Services helps to further identify information regarding the operating environment, and to help determine various grouping(s) of IPv4 space, and whether a single Web Service is responsible for one or more IP Addresses. An example data set is shared publicly, to indicate the popularity and distribution of several common web platforms, and operating system distribution. For access to the complete set of Meta data from this probe, we do make this information available on a subscription basis. Note: various firewall policies and redirections can affect the accuracy of meta data depending on access to the SMTP Port
SMTP scan started

Scan of Publicly Accessible WebServices completed!
Feb 19 11:40 2017 PST
This month's scan of the publicly accessible Web Services (Port 80) is now complete. We have gathered data that will be used in later reports, in order to publicly share information such as the number of servers of a specific type that operate around the world, including demographics etc. If you wish to have access to the Meta data of this probe, we do offer subscription access. As well, we can provide specific information sets on a custom basis. Numbers may fluctuate on a month to month basis, depending whether dynamically assigned IP Addresses are included in the results.
