NetSpective’s inline bridge configuration allows for optimal filtering control with granular control by user group and content category of HTTPS content. The primary advantage of inline filtering is the ability to selectively decrypt content categories, for example, perform transparent TLS inspection on Google but not Bank XYZ.
With a Inline Bridge configuration, the appliance provides all the functionality of the passive architecture with the added benefit on selective HTTPS inspection. Where competitive solutions slow network traffic, the Inline Bridge option extends control to the administrators to decrypt Google and Facebook but not financial sites where legal liability topic exist. The Inline Bridge edition supports both Fail OPEN and Fail CLOSED configurations, as well as, hot spare fail-over scenarios for redundancy.
NetSpective’s passive configuration allows for optimal filtering performance with zero traffic latency issues in even the highest of bandwidth environments. The primary advantage of passive filtering is wire-speed filtering. This is idea for educational service providers.
The proxy’s inline filtering can deliver traffic shaping capabilities to assist in guaranteed bandwidth allocation to high priority sites and mission critical content.
In addition to web filtering, NetSpective WebFilter traffic shaping optimizes service for high priority applications while providing flexible control over non-essential, resource-intensive and undesirable traffic. Traffic shaping allows scheduling of communication streams into different classes of service with bandwidth limits and priorities. Control can be extended by group policy and Internet category allowing the flexibility to block, log, or prioritize traffic.
Extend the same on-network filtering capabilities to devices that are used off-network while eliminating the need for repetitive authentication. Ideal for Chomebooks, iPads or Android mobile devices.
