Executive Summary

Companies rely on URL filtering and Web security products to protect their employees, PCs, and networks from dangerous, inappropriate, and unwanted content on the Web. In addition to blocking Web pages that contain sexually explicit, violent, or illegal content, these products also play an increasingly important role in securing corporate networks - they can provide a first line of defense against malicious Web pages and restrict bandwidth-hogging downloads. While filtering of adult-oriented and productivity-wasting sites is something of a commodity, there are notable differences in how individual products perform against more challenging types of Web content and a large variation when it comes to blocking security threats.
