Browser For iPad With Built In Filter

Bloxx : 25 April, 2012  (New Product)
Web traffic can be filtered over wi-fi connections to the Apple iPad using the Bloxx browser
Browser For iPad With Built In Filter
Bloxx has released the Bloxx Web Browser for iPads. The browser lets organisations quickly and easily extend the capability of their Bloxx Web Filter or Secure Web Gateway to enforce Web access policies for iPads used off-network.

The Bloxx Browser will filter Web traffic over a Wi-Fi connection when the device is connected to an organisation’s network and if the iPad is used off-network, for example at home or connected to a public Wi-Fi network. In addition, if the iPad has 3G connectivity, then access policies will still be enforced with the browser installed.

“The rapid adoption of tablets and in particular iPads has created a security nightmare for organisations and IT managers,” said Graham Twaddle, CTO at Bloxx. “The Bloxx iPad browser provides a quick and convenient way for organisations to obtain all of the significant business benefits of iPads while ensuring that the risk of inappropriate or productivity impacting Web content being accessed is eliminated.”

The explosive growth in Mobile devices such as PCs, tablet computers and smartphones, presents a significant challenge for IT Managers who need to ensure that Web browsing on these devices complies with their organisation’s usage policies.

Since the vast majority of these devices were designed for consumers rather than commercial users, standard methods used to filter Web traffic are difficult and complex to implement. Apple iOS devices such as iPads, are particularly difficult to manage since Apple has chosen to not implement an across the board proxy setting. This invariably means that there is no single approach to filtering iOS devices that will be appropriate for every organisation.
