Network Box USA announced the beta release of a web content filtering technology to support Google Safe Search and Safe Browsing functions. The new capabilities, which will be standard on Network Box unified threat management (UTM) products, will allow businesses to easily implement protection against Internet threats and prevent sites and web pages with inappropriate content from appearing in search engine results.
With the added functionality, Network Box USA customers will now have a content filtering engine that uses Google’s Safe Browsing system to check URL requests against Google’s constantly updated blacklist of suspected phishing- and malware-infested web pages. These web filter categories will be in addition to Network Box’s existing anti-virus and anti-phishing solution, which uses Kaspersky and ClamAV to inspect pages for malicious content.
The new Google Safe Search feature will let customers filter search results and eliminate sites and web pages that contain inappropriate content. It will now be possible to configure the Network Box so that it implements the filter on Google search engine searches and enables safe searching. This will complement the full SurfControl database each Network Box currently deploys to protect users from inappropriate content.
