Whitepaper: Understanding Web Filtering Technologies
The Internet is now a huge resource of information and plays an increasingly important role in business and education. However, without adequate controls in place, organisations are likely to be faced with a broad range of issues. These range from excessive personal use of the Internet during business impacting staff productivity to legal risks if users access inappropriate content. This has led to the emergence of web filtering products, which organisations can deploy to enable proactive management of Internet access for users. This whitepaper discusses some of the technology options available for web filtering and reviews the benefits and limitations of each.
