Web Filter

Web Filters helps administrators ensure web and content security across the network. Easily and quickly create policies to block porn, gambling, videos, social networks, shopping sites or other undesirable or inappropriate content and applications from being accessed. Allow, block, flag or alert by category to easily set up rules that meet your criteria. With Web Filter, you can easily monitor or control searches across popular search engines including Google, YouTube, Ask, Bing, and Yahoo. You can also enforce safe search on YouTube, as well as log searches, giving you an unprecedented degree of visibility and control, ideal for content-sensitive environments like schools, public libraries, and social services organizations.

Just as Application Control manages access based on the application type, Web Filter manages access based on the type of content on the site. If you combine Web Filter and Policy Manager, you can enable more flexible access based upon user groups (e.g. teachers versus students) and during different times (lunch time or weekends). For example, you might allow teachers to access social networks any time, but students can only access them during lunch break or after school. Setting up and managing filter rules is quick, easy and effective with Web Filter.

Allowing access to inappropriate content can reduce productivity, create distractions or even lead to legal action. Web Filter is a fast, easy, and effective way to ensure that your users are not abusing your network use policies.
