Dell SonicWALL Content Filtering Service (CFS) provides unequaled protection and productivity policy enforcement for businesses, schools, libraries and government agencies. Dell SonicWALL has created a revolutionary content filtering architecture, utilizing a scalable, dynamic database to block objectionable and unproductive web content.
Businesses, educational institutions and government agencies assume substantial risks and costs when they provide Internet access, particularly when those connections are used to access sites containing information or images that are inappropriate, illegal or dangerous. Unrestricted web access can result in excessive non-productive web surfing, creating tremendous losses in productivity. Schools, in particular, have a responsibility to protect students from inappropriate and harmful web content. In addition, both schools and libraries that receive eRate funding are required by law to install a content filtering solution in compliancewith the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA).SonicWALL Content Filtering Service provides the ideal combination of control and flexibility to ensure the highest levels of protection and productivity. Dell SonicWALL CFS prevents individual users from accessing inappropriate content while reducing organizational liability and increasing productivity.
By allowing enforcement of User Level Authentication (ULA), Dell SonicWALL CFS requires individuals to log on to the network with their username and password. Administrators are given complete control over who may or may not access the Internet, further enhancing control, protection and productivity.This innovative solution utilizes a comprehensive URL database to instantly sort questionable or inappropriate sites into as many as 50+ categories. The network administrator applies policies to each category, enforcing the desired levels of access for groups and individuals.
