Comparing Architectures For Internet Content Filtering Solutions
This white paper makes the business case for content filtering, explains the pros and cons of different solution architectures, and describes how the SonicWALL solution enables optimum protection and productivity for small and mid-sized businesses, schools, and libraries. Content filtering solutions generally conform to one of three architectures: client, server, or gateway. An organization’s choice of architecture determines the solution’s effectiveness, cost, and manageability. The SonicWALL Content Filtering Service (CFS) is a next-generation, gateway-based solution. SonicWALL CFS leverages an innovative website caching and rating architecture to deliver the scalability and flexibility of an enterprise-class filtering solution, at a breakthrough price point.
