Web Filtering

Acceptable Internet Use and Policy-Based Compliance

Web Filtering is a key security requirement for almost any organization’s IT network. Put simply, Web Filtering is about controlling access to inappropriate or dangerous Internet content, while ensuring you can access valuable content when you need to. Organizations utilize Web Filtering to provide a productive and safe work or learning environment and meet regulatory or legal compliance obligations.

Until recently, Web Filtering has centred on URL Filtering, or libraries of websites sorted into subject categories. However, this approach has a problem; there are always more websites to classify and Web content can change minute-by-minute. Today, ContentKeeper’s Web Filtering solutions provide real-time, high performance Web content analysis, utilizing advanced heuristics and deep packet inspection. ContentKeeper integrates a diverse range of powerful, policy-based controls to enable your organization fine control over web use on any Web-connected device, located anywhere.
