Bloxx, a UK-based enterprise web filtering company, has released version 5.0 of its Tru-View Technology web filtering appliance.
According to the company, the appliance range includes enhanced protection against secure anonymous proxies and improved real-time monitoring and reporting. In addition, the appliances incorporate the Internet Watch Foundation’s database feed of illegal sites as standard.
Bloxx has said that the new version of web filtering appliance provides better levels of identification and blocking of the majority of anonymous proxies, which are a source of concern for many IT managers in schools and colleges.
With an increasing number of these sites now being accessed using encrypted connections via HTTPS, the latest version of Tru-View Technology is now also able to identify and block these in real-time. This will deliver enhanced protection against anonymous proxies and allow IT managers to continue to provide a safe and secure learning environment, added Bloxx.
Integrated reporting, which is included as standard with every appliance and includes over 120 different types of reports on internet activity, has been enhanced with quick reports that will deliver detailed and informative reports in an instant. The quick reporting capability covers reports that are most frequently accessed by IT managers and provides rapid insights into user activity to enable resolution of potential problems.
Additional real-time insights into internet activity is now also available through a dashboard which provides a quick and intuitive overview of an organization’s activity and in-depth statistical information regarding sites that have been blocked or allowed.
Eamonn Doyle, CEO of Bloxx, said: We are continually developing the capability of our web filtering appliance and these latest enhancements will allow IT managers to address emerging threats, especially encrypted anonymous proxies.
These enhancements deliver additional benefits to ensure that IT managers are able to spend significantly less time managing web filtering.
