Web Content Filter and Malware Protection Provides Safe Online Environment
iomartcloud, a leading supplier of business critical hosted cloud services and part of iomart Group plc, has partnered with Exinda, a global provider of next-generation WAN Optimization and Network Control solutions, to deliver an innovative web filtering solution to enterprise networks and primary and secondary schools.
As a result of increased online collaboration and mobile device expansion in the workplace, the risk of employees and students accessing inappropriate content on the network is growing. In response Exinda has launched the Exinda Content Filter which integrates the content filtering capabilities from iomartcloud into its WAN Optimization and Network Control appliances which have helped over 3,000 organizations worldwide deliver safe and reliable end user experiences.
Bill Strain, director of iomartcloud, said: "This is a very important partnership with a global leader in WAN Optimization and Network Control. It means our web filtering software will be delivered through a single network appliance for the first time. Businesses and organizations across the globe will be able to add web filtering to their network quickly and affordably at any level, from the gateway right down to the individual device, according to their requirements."
The cloud-based Exinda Content Filter will provide IT managers with the ability to block access to prohibited content, prevent staff and students from downloading and sharing copyrighted material, and eliminate misuse of the network. With its best in class reporting tools, Exinda Content filter enables IT staff to monitor users and applications on or off the network, and set intelligent policies that restrict unauthorised behaviour.
