Web Filtering Services
Hassle-free, network-side URL and web filtering based on topical categories updated four times a day
CSPs, businesses, and subscribers have various reasons for wanting to filter out specific URLs and categories of web content. These include increasing employee productivity, protecting employees from content not appropriate for the workplace, protecting general subscribers in specific cultures and locales from offensive content, and offering parents the power to control what their children see online.
Traditional client-based solutions that install a filtering program on an end-user device come with the hassle of frequent updates and software management. These systems can also be bypassed by the device user, which is something many businesses would like to prevent.
Sandvine’s Web Content Intelligence leverages a real-time integration with reputable third-party threat intelligence data sources so that CSPs can deploy a network-based solution for businesses and subscribers to block URLs and filter over 100 web browsing subjects that cannot be bypassed, and with no need for end-client software.
