Web Content Filtering

The ability to control web access is key to improved productivity and the avoidance of various liability issues. The EdgeXOS platform solves these problems by delivering one of the most effective web content filtering solutions on the market today.

The EdeXOS platform includes two levels of web filtering, the first is our URL filtering which provides global (non-user based) filtering of web traffic. This filtering is included with every Network Load Balancing appliance with the purchase of platform support.

The second level is our enhanced Cloud5ecure thin-clients which deliver per-user web filtering along with anti-spyware, anti-virus, and malware protection. For more information on the additional capabilities delivered via the enhanced web threat protection, click here.

Both levels provide organizations with an easy way to deploy URL filtering which prevents unauthorized access to objectionable and/or recreational sites along with sites which may provide liability issues. The global URL filter comes standard with these features:

  • Instantly allow/deny sites
  • Bypass Specific Users
  • Real-Time Web Usage Reporting
  • PreDefined Category Blocking
  • Capable of handling over 200,000 RPS

The EdgeXOS appliance combines preventative and reactive filters to protect end-users from accessing unauthorized sites. Along with access control, ALL surfing activity is monitored and recorded. Additionally through our Live Reports a network administrator can see who is accessing what sites in real-time and perform searches based on specific IP addresses and/or URLs.
