The stats below highlight that no matter how advanced a URL blocklist appears to be, it simply can’t cut it when it comes to the modern web. Vast amounts of new websites, blog posts and images are published every minute, with blocklists taking time to analyse and categorise.
Smoothwall use a combination of blocklists along with our intelligent Content Aware analysis, which is able to analyse the content of any page in real time and categorise it, prompting the solution to make a decision about whether to display a page.
Because of this advanced technology, we’re able to offer a 360° filtering methodology, taking into account any content on the page, whether it be a search term, domain, image, comment or text.
We’ve spent 15 years analysing content ensuring it’s suitable for the audience viewing it. Our web filter analyzes the content and context of new material in real time to prevent anything slipping through. We offer 120 content filtering categories and search terms are inspected on over 80 websites, with safe search being enforced for all known web and image search engines.
We also ensure our categories are up to date based on intelligence we receive from third parties, including the Internet Watch Foundation and the police assessed list of terrorist content produced on behalf of the Home Office.
Our multi-layered approach provides the ultimate level of protection, categorising content from images to comments to the URL – and everything in between.
Real-time, content aware web filtering technologies combined with next generation firewall give you The Web You Want. Developed in the UK.
