Tru-View Web Filtering Controls Internet Access for Scottish Council Employees

Bloxx : 12 February, 2010  (Application Story)
Over 16,000 Council Employees in East Ayrshire are being protected with Bloxx Tru-View Technology providing selective content based filtering of web sites
Bloxx, the innovator in web filtering, has announced that East Ayrshire Council is providing safe and controlled Internet access and Web surfing for its 16,000+ users using Bloxx's Web filtering appliance, powered by its patented Tru-View Technology. This protection benefits council and library staff as well as staff and students in schools throughout the East Ayrshire region.

The council recently carried out a thorough review of its existing Web content filtering that was delivered by various providers. After reviewing and trialing a number of filters, the Council selected Bloxx Web filtering to identify, categorise and block Web pages in real-time and provide a high level of user and network protection, increase user productivity and reduce risk and liability.

Ian Aston, Infrastructure Development Manager at East Ayrshire Council explains, "Our primary objective was to gain a filter that could classify in real-time in order to cut down on helpdesk time, and it was clear Bloxx Web Filtering was the best fit, its Tru-View Technology is extremely useful."

"Comprehensive reports on Internet activity enable us to enforce any number of different Internet usage policies and assure the online safety of our users. In addition, Bloxx incorporates anti-malware blocking as standard and blocks access to phishing sites. With this functionality we can further protect our network from online threats, minimize the risk of fraud and speed up Internet access for our users."

Ian adds, "We have a lot of education users and Tru-View Technology is excellent at identifying and blocking anonymous proxies even if they are completely new. The ability to enforce Safesearch on search engines helps us deliver a safer learning environment. Schools are now offering Web-based training and online lessons due to the increase in Internet access speeds following the introduction of Bloxx."

"Bloxx was a much more cost effective solution compared to other Web filters we reviewed and provided the opportunity for us to filter our Education and Library users through the appliance. This delivers significant budget savings and reduces IT administration time and costs," comments Ian.

"Bloxx is an all-in-one solution that gives us advanced technology at a very competitive cost. With its introduction the number of helpdesk support calls the IT team now receive about Web filtering has reduced significantly. The Bloxx UK Support Team is very responsive and I have a single point of contact for support, maintenance contract renewal and so on, which makes communication a lot easier. Bloxx is a definite winner," concludes Ian.
