SonicWALL Content Filtering Service (CFS) provides unequaled protection and productivity policy enforcement for businesses, schools, libraries and government agencies. SonicWALL has created a revolutionary content filtering architecture, utilizing a scalable, dynamic database to block objectionable and unproductive web content.Businesses, educational institutions and government agencies assume substantial risks and costs when they provide Internet access, particularly when those connections are used to access sites containing information or images that are inappropriate, illegal or dangerous. Unrestricted web access can result in excessive non-productive web surfing, creating tremendous losses in productivity. Schools, in particular, have a responsibility to protect students from inappropriate and harmful web content. In addition, both schools and libraries that receive eRate funding are required by law to install a content filtering solution in compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA).SonicWALL Content Filtering Service provides the ideal combination of control and flexibility to ensure the highest levels of protection and productivity. SonicWALL CFS prevents individual users from accessing inappropriate content while reducing organizational liability and increasing productivity.By allowing enforcement of User Level Authentication (ULA), SonicWALL CFS requires individuals to log on to the network with their username and password. Administrators are given complete control over who may or may not access the Internet, further enhancing control, protection and productivity.This innovative solution utilizes a comprehensive URL database to instantly sort questionable or inappropriate sites into as many as 50+ categories. The network administrator applies policies to each category, enforcing the desired levels of access for groups and individuals. Approval or denial of access can be made by category, individual, or time of day. This flexibility allows businesses, schools and libraries to easily maximize productivity while protecting users and the organization against objectionable content.When a network user requests a URL or web site, SonicWALL CFS captures that destination and checks it against its immense database. If the user does not have permission to access this type of material, denial is enforced. The entire process, from request to denial or permission, takes only a fraction of a second.Driven by a powerful rating and caching architecture, SonicWALL CFS is an enterprise-grade service that rates and filters millions of URLs, IP addresses and web sites. Ratings for acceptable web sites are cached within the SonicWALL appliances for instantaneous access.Administered through an intuitive interface, SonicWALL CFS enables filtering and control to take place directly over a LAN, wireless LAN or VPN. The innovative rating and caching architecture and remarkable speed of SonicWALL CFS combined with the power and scalability of SonicWALL appliances delivers an integrated, easy-to-use, manageable solution for networks of any size.
