High Speed Web Filtering With Additional Categorisation

ESoft : 24 March, 2010  (New Product)
SiteFilter 3.0 from eSoft offers zero-hour URL protection, real time categorization updates and microsecond rates of database lookup
ESoft has announced the release of SiteFilter 3.0, which is offered through the company's OEM and technology licensing program. Like SiteFilter 2.0, SiteFilter 3.0 boasts one of the world's largest databases of categorised URLs, and offers unique features, including eSoft's Distributed Intelligence Architecture (DIA), real-time updates and categorisations, Web 2.0 focus, and zero-hour malicious URL protections.

SiteFilter 3.0 comprises a total of 144 possible categories, increased from 53 categories in version 2.0. Newly added categories include such topics as Kids' Pages, Personal Storage, Video Streaming, and expanded security categories including Botnets. SiteFilter 3.0 includes features and capabilities targeted at specific markets including Mobile Service Providers, End-Point Security/AV vendors, and MSSPs. In addition, eSoft is introducing an industry first: Built-in category mappings that allow OEM partners to eliminate costly and time-consuming policy changes when converting to SiteFilter.

A partial list of other SiteFilter 3.0 features includes:

* New APIs simplify the setup of cloud or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for partners implementing SiteFilter in their own datacentres
* Expanded IP address coverage with more Web 2.0 IP address categorisations
* Primary category option which enables OEM partners to prioritise category and access policies
* Enhanced SiteFilter database lookup performance: speeds of 5-10 microseconds per lookup - compared to over 10's or 100's of milliseconds for other web filtering vendors

"With over 70% of malware delivered via the Web and explosive amounts of offensive and inappropriate content, the Web is the core challenge facing Internet solutions vendors today," said Patrick Walsh, eSoft's chief technology officer. "SiteFilter 3.0 is the fastest and most effective solution to these problems in the industry and can be quickly integrated into a variety of server, desktop, and mobile applications."

The updates to upgrade to SiteFilter 3.0 are available immediately for existing OEM partners using the SiteFilter library or SiteFilter cloud solution.
