ESoft provides web filtering technology for Untangle clients

ESoft : 10 December, 2008  (Application Story)
Untangle Gateway gains web filtering add-on from eSoft to provide added value to its web security clients
eSoft and Untangle have announced that Untangle has integrated eSoft's SiteFilter technology as a new premium commercial add-on to the Untangle Gateway.

eSoft and Untangle have partnered to enable small businesses to enforce acceptable network usage polices effectively by blocking and monitoring web traffic. Not to be confused with traditional URL blacklists, eSoft's SiteFilter technology goes beyond blocking porn and gambling by dynamically classifying online threats like malware distribution, phishing and proxy sites. SiteFilter leverages eSoft's Distributed Intelligence Architecture (DIA) that inspects over 200 million daily data feeds from its network of sensors, honeypots and alliances with both fine-tuned algorithms and a team of 70 professionally trained analysts working 24x7 to deliver real-time updates and industry leading accuracy.

"Untangle is committed to making it easy for our community to adopt the best IT applications available," said Dirk Morris, CTO of Untangle. "The SiteFilter technology and database has the best coverage, highest accuracy, and best protection against rapidly evolving sites like proxies, phishing and Web 2.0 where real-time updates are critical, so partnering with eSoft was a no-brainer."

"We are always looking to partner with companies like Untangle that go beyond traditional web filtering to combat evolving online threats," said Patrick Walsh, Director of Product Management and Marketing. "SiteFilter blocks proxy and virus hosting websites just as effectively as it blocks gambling, pornography, and other potentially undesirable websites. As businesses become more reliant on the web for everyday tasks, eSoft's SiteFilter helps them to manage the risks of the web while still benefiting from its use."
