Frequently asked questions
How does it work?
Using a database of billions of URLs Hosted CensorNet Web Filtering instantly protects users from inappropriate websites. On top of that we use human inspection of content in multiple languages as well as advanced image scanning technology. This ensures your users don't see what you don't want them to see.
It's not just content blocking either. Hosted CensorNet Web Filtering takes care of malware with multiple layers of security. CensorNet's breakthrough online threat detection and predictive heuristics stop web-based malware threats fast.
Does it delay page loads?
No, Hosted CensorNet Web Filtering is proxy-less which ensures that it works at blazing fast speeds with zero latency.
Does it work on mobile devices?
Hosted CensorNet Web Filtering's follow-the-user philosophy ensures web access control passes seamlessly from desktop to laptop to mobile and therefore provides a consistent browsing experience for the end user. More sophisticated than DNS-based solutions and involving considerably less overhead than pure proxy solutions, the CensorNet HWS platform extends to networks, roaming users, standalone computers, tablet devices and BYOD.
Is there any hardware to install?
Standalone computers, where there is no network infrastructure, can be brought under the control of the web filtering service by simply installing Cloud Link. Smart phones and tablet devices can also be protected whilst they are roaming by using the Cloud Link iOS secure browser or Android application.
The solution provides a consistent web browsing experience for users as they move from desktop, to laptop to mobile which increases productivity and reduces IT administration.
