Video Transcript:
The use case that we found is that sometimes, perhaps even a particular search engine and towards the bottom of the search engine, there are things that are called click-baiting. They look like they're things that they're enticing you to click and do things. 

Now, maybe those particular sites on first click aren't necessarily risky or something that's going to cause a threat or a particular security anomaly, but if you continue to click through those down there, you might find something that's not great, and it may be something that may cause a compromise. 

So we've been able to utilize ThreatSTOP to be able to mitigate those risks when it gets to a certain place where it does go to the bad neighborhood on the internet. There's a block, or at least there's a message that pushes them to a place where it's still safe, and they know they're probably not able to go there, and sometimes it does a legitimate one, but we know that we have a way that we work threats without being able to mitigate that and let folks be able to do that. 

So we found it to be not very interesting, but varying and highly protected, being able to help us with those things.
