NetSpective WebFilter aggressively delivers and pro-actively updates defences against sites that users commonly leverage to circumvent filtering policies.
Due to questionable sites like Anonymous Proxies and Hacking sites changing on a day to day basis, we utilize a feature referred to as our Micro Updates. Unknown websites that are detected by the NetSpective WebFilter appliance are sent back to TeleMate.Net for evaluation. TeleMate.Net’s categorization enginewill then categorize the URL and send it out to all NetSpective WebFilter Appliances every 10 minutes. Every NetSpective WebFilter has the benefit of learning from every other NetSpective WebFilter in our entire customer base.
NetSpective WebFilter can granularly block access to bandwidth-intensive and potentially harmful P2P sites, content and applications while allowing access to those that are organization-approved.
NetSpective WebFilter provides features to automate functions for busy technology staff. Network Abuse Detection allows administrators to receive alerts on users trying to access forbidden websites, as well as shut down all internet access automatically.
Administrators can be sent email alerts when users surf traffic that exceeds thresholds on sensitive categories. System Admins also have the option to lock down all web traffic and protocol activity based on those traffic thresholds. This is typically used as a teaching mechanism for K12 customers where students can then be disciplined and taught proper surfing behaviour.
NetAuditor includes trend-based monitoring and notification to provide real-time awareness of traffic patterns. Where the dashboard allows you to perform "Top N" searches of your processed data, the monitors allow you to tell the NetAuditor processing engine to watch for something specific as data is processed in real-time.
