Web Filtering Policies Extended To Remote Clients

Bloxx : 11 January, 2011  (New Product)
Bloxx has introduced Remote Web Filtering where remote workers can be provided with internet access in compliance with company internet access and content filtering policies
Bloxx has announced the launch of Remote Web Filtering, which allows organisations to seamlessly manage web access and web security for users who need to access the Internet when working from home or travelling on business. Remote filtering extends all of the benefits of Bloxx Web Filtering provided to office based users, including dynamic real-time URL filtering. Remote filtering uses a standard Bloxx Web Filtering appliance in conjunction with a Windows application installed on users’ laptop or desktop computers.



The Bloxx Intelligent Remote Filtering Client locks down web access to a company’s filtering policy by forcing web requests to be made directly through a Bloxx Web Filter. The application also ensures that web access continues to be filtered even when a user is accessing the web through a public Wi-Fi hotspot and uniquely solves the problem of IT managers having to manually maintain an allow list of Wi-Fi providers on each laptop. Without this, users would either be denied access to the Internet or allowed unfiltered access.



“With telecommuting becoming more viable for companies and the widespread availability of Wi-Fi hotspots for business travellers, the need for dynamic remote web filtering is growing quickly” said Eamonn Doyle, Chief Executive Officer at Bloxx. “Organisations need to ensure that filtering policies are enforced consistently no matter where a user is located and the Bloxx Intelligent Remote Filtering Client makes this simple and straightforward to achieve.”
