Content Filtering is more than just blocking bad websites.

It can make your network faster, safer, and provide significant cost savings.

 

Benefits to Content Filtering include;

  • Blocking of adult sites and p2p download sites (think stolen music or programs)
  • Bandwidth control.  If you are feeling "your Internet is slow", the problem may actually be that  streaming music or video is taking all the bandwidth
  • Productivity loss.  By monitoring and controlling web access, we found things like the graphic on the right
  • Making a good faith effort to prevent sexual harassment, fraud, or theft.
  • Acceptable Use Policy enforcement
  • Drive-by virus sites can be blocked, and the list of infected sites is updated automatically
