NetSpective WebFilter provides multiple options for filtering mobile devices both ON and OFF the network, as well as, within environments that have initiated a BYOD policy. Options include Wi-Fi Agent, Global Proxy, and Mobile Portal.
Seamless and transparent authentication for filtering mobile devices on-network. Perfect for large distributed networks, does not have to be installed on the device, and compatible with all wireless access points.
NetSpective WebFilter deployments can be customized to collect information for properly authenticating a user on a wireless network. By collecting information from DHCP logs and Access Control Server logs (RADIUS logs) NetSpective WebFilter is able to dynamically bind a Username and IP Address so that traffic can be associated with a specific user.
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.
Filter off-network Windows and Mac devices with centralized deployment and management tools that require no additional licensing or hardware.
Remote Agents are designed for filtering and reporting on Windows and Mac OS X computers both on-network and off-network. When installed on a computer, the remote agent will communicate back to the NetSpective WebFilter appliance asking for a Go or No-Go on the computer user's web traffic using a proprietary UDP packet. The appliance then checks against the user’s policy and sends that packet back to the remote agent to either allow the traffic or redirect to a block page. The user’s browsing history is sent back to the appliance periodically.
Permanently or temporarily authenticate and filter all mobile devices, regardless of manufacturer, operating, system, or browser type.
