The Bloxx TVT-Range of web filtering appliances performs live analysis of web content with contextual understanding to not only stop nasty web material from hitting your users' desktops but to also give you complete control over access to other types of websites that impact on user productivity, such as shopping.
The problem with existing web filters
Google's index now contains billions of web pages. Leading web filtering vendors claim to have databases containing around 20 million URLs. How can a database of this size provide you with comprehensive filtering?
We don't believe it can.
To complement databases with keyword scanning technology is good – but not good enough. It is useful for blocking some offensive sites, but what about everything else (shopping, travel, anonymous proxies, etc)?
First and second generation web filters can't keep up with the growth of the web. It is time for a whole new approach.
The solution: Bloxx Tru-View Technology
Bloxx Tru-View Technology combines the best of conventional tools with new intelligent identification and analyses technologies to rapidly classify web traffic in real time.
It automatically tracks and classifies more effectively than first and second generation filters and removes the inherent weaknesses in using human-only classification giving you the most up-to-date URL blocking and control.
To maintain user productivity and organizational efficiency during working hours, web filters need to be able to cope with ‘inoffensive' web content like auction sites and travel – as well as being efficient at categorizing illegal and offensive sites. Bloxx Tru-View Technology does exactly this – it tracks both disruptive 'inoffensive' traffic and offensive content like porn giving you complete Internet control.
Tru-View Technology operates 24/7, meaning that the Bloxx database is fluid and current, rather than being based on out-of-date lists. Bloxx views the hidden depths of the Internet that other filters miss so that you can be entirely confident you have up-to-the-minute web control over the traffic through your network.
With 50 categories covering everything from dating to military to hacking, unique algorithms developed by Bloxx Researchers allow websites that aren't in Bloxx's database to be identified and categorized immediately. They are then blocked or allowed depending on the user's access rights to that particular category.
Sensitivity Manager for ultimate web control
The Bloxx Sensitivity Manager allows you to adjust the sensitivity of Tru-View Technology. Each category has a sensitivity slider ranging from 0-100 and each can be adjusted according to your organization's level of tolerance to the content in question. For example, you may wish to be quite aggressive in blocking inappropriate material such as violence or pornography, but less proactive when it comes to travel or property.
