Web Filtering: Completing the Evolution From Acceptable-Use to Serious Malware Defense
Source: Burton Group
Web-filtering solutions provide acceptable-use policy enforcement and malware protection. Given the rapidly increasing number of attacks originating from the Web, such solutions are ever more important. The landscape of web filtering is evolving as vendors mature their solutions, acquire competitors, and start to blend products with other protection functions, such as message security and content control. As the market consolidates, clients need to take care to evaluate best-of-breed stand-alone solutions against emerging, but immature, suites. In the end, web filtering will remain a critical part of protection architecture for all enterprises.
