A client content filter prevents end users from accessing harmful and unproductive web content. It extends this protection to endpoint devices as soon as they wander outside the corporate firewall perimeter.
Web content filtering is vital to schools, government agencies, libraries, and other institutions who need to prevent users from accessing harmful, inappropriate, or illegal content. In some institutions, installation of content filtering solutions is mandated by the law. Schools and libraries, for example, need it to comply with CIPA (Children’s Internet Protection Act). Other businesses can use content filters to block sites that impair employee productivity.
Client content filters:
- Provide flexible policy configurations
- Block/filter a wide range of content, including: Java, ActiveX, Cookies, streaming media, IM, etc.
- Draw web content ratings from a constantly updated database
- Provide a Web-based administrative interface for anytime, anywhere management
- Receive policy updates
