Secure Computing announced a new version of SmartFilter 4.2 with TrustedSource. It provides granular protection against today’s Web 2.0 threats, allowing companies to leverage Web 2.0 technologies without compromising corporate policy. SmartFilter 4.2 marks the fourth Secure Computing product integration with TrustedSource, the company’s global reputation system.
SmartFilter also now includes several significant enhancements to protect against today’s evolving security landscape, including Web 2.0 threats. Key enhancements include:
” Enhanced Coverage: By adding supplementary filtering categories, SmartFilter 4.2 gives administrators detailed control over how popular Web 2.0 sites such as Blogs/Wikis, Interactive Web Applications, Digital Postcards, and Media Sharing are accessed within the network. This allows end users access to popular Web 2.0 sites without sacrificing corporate security practices.
” Safe Search Enforcement: IT administrators can override browser settings and enforce “Safe Search,” a search engine option that eliminates explicit content from both image and web search results. This functionality provides end users with enhanced protection from unwanted sites and IT administrators with additional control of employee browser settings.
” Automated feedback: With improved database coverage, SmartFilter can automatically send questionable URLs to the TrustedSource network for review and inclusion in the database, providing enhanced coverage for all customers.
