Content Filtering Best Practices
Traditional web content filtering solutions are inadequate for today’s needs.
Many solutions provide general web filtering with a few extra features, but not as granular as administrators need, while still leaving gaps in coverage. These gaps can make your organization or institution vulnerable to threats as well as jeopardize compliance with federal law.
With internet threats and vulnerabilities like viruses and malware, social media, proxy and SSL workarounds, your environment is more at risk without the proper technology designed to address all of these issues.
With the growing use of wildcard certificates and high use SSL traffic, the ability for management to filter and log unwanted traffic is harder than ever. Web 2.0 sites have value to your organization, but allowing or denying them as a whole is not a viable filtering strategy. You need a product that can can decode traffic properly and allows granular control over the sites visited.
