Content Filtering

Content Filtering - for many business and personal computer networks it can be important that certain items and addresses from the internet are not to be viewed. In his situation we offer help in content filtering, setting levels of tolerance to what can be view on your network. Depending on the uses of the network (e.g. home, business or school network), there are various reasons as to why content filtering may be beneficial to your system, including:

- Secure your network from web-based threats
- Limit the legal liability associated with pornographic or illegal file downloads
- Sites related to violence or hate groups
- Promotions of drug use or the assumption of large amounts of alcohol
- Manage Internet traffic to optimize network bandwidth
- Chat forums (some parents may chose to ban their children from such addresses in the fear they might be talking to people i.e. paedophiles).
