High-performance Web caching and rating architecture
IP-based HTTPS content filtering
Scalable, cost-effective solution
Illegal, inappropriate and harmful Web content can enter your network via any user's browser. Unfiltered content can infect your network with malware, drain productivity, as well as put your organization at risk for regulatory non-compliance, funding withdrawal and even criminal liability. For instance, schools and libraries that receive eRate funding are required by law to install a content filtering solution in compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA).
SonicWall Content Filtering Service (CFS) provides unequaled content filtering enforcement for businesses, educational institutions, libraries and government agencies, as well as distributed public Internet hotspots. SonicWall CFS blocks inappropriate content, reduces organizational liability and increases productivity for organizations of any size.
SonicWall CFS utilizes a comprehensive database of millions of URLs, IP addresses and Web sites. Using a high-performance rating and caching architecture, CFS dynamically updates ratings locally on a SonicWall network security appliance for instantaneous comparison. With CFS, administrators can apply access or denial policies, individual or group identity, or time of day.
