SONICWALL SonicWALL CFS Premium Business Edition u
Dell SonicWALL Content Filtering Service (CFS) provides unequaled protection and productivity policy enforcement for businesses, schools, libraries and government agencies. Dell 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. Dell SonicWALL CFS prevents individual users from accessing inappropriate content while reducing organizational liability and increasing productivity.
By allowing enforcement of User Level Authentication (ULA), Dell 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, Dell 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, Dell 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 Dell SonicWALL appliances for instantaneous access.
Administered through an intuitive interface, Dell 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 Dell SonicWALL CFS combined with the power and scalability of Dell SonicWALL appliances delivers an integrated, easy-to-use, manageable solution for networks of any size.
- Appliance-based, scalable content filtering solution
SonicWALL CFS is an enterprise-class, scalable content filtering service that requires no additional hardware or deployment expenditures.
- Web site rating and caching
The innovative Dell SonicWALL CFS architecture catches URL ratings locally on the Dell SonicWALL appliance. These web site ratings are stored for all future users that attempt to visit the URLs, making response time to frequently visited sites virtually instantaneous.
- Comprehensive database
SonicWALL CFS reduces costs and extends protection by combining a comprehensive, continuously updated database featuring millions of URLs, IP addresses and domains with a unique caching system that reduces latency to a fraction of a second.
- Group policies
SonicWALL CFS Premium Editions give administrators the flexibility to enforce custom policies for groups of users on the network. Multiple policies can be created that filter by category type and by time of day.
- Local URL filtering control
SonicWALL CFS provides local filtering control, allowing network administrators to specify domains or hosts to be allowed ("Trusted") or denied ("Forbidden"). This capability can be used to customize the content filter database, or to allow access to sites in a custom database, making the system even more effective at blocking objectionable material.
- Java, ActiveX and Cookie blocking
The ability of Dell SonicWALL CFS to block most automatically downloaded files increases security beyond the capabilities of most firewalls. Java and ActiveX are often used for hacker attacks. Cookies create privacy concerns, because they direct a remote web browser to save small amounts of data on the local disk, and can be used to store preference information and track web usage history.
- Block by time of day
SonicWALL CFS allows network administrators to choose the hours when content filtering takes place. A school could, for example, filter specific content during school hours and remove that filter after school. A business could allow unfiltered Internet access to employees during lunch hours and after work hours.
- User Level Authentication (ULA)
SonicWALL CFS provides network administrators with a greater level of control over who may or may not access the Internet by enforcing ULA, which requires users to log on to the corporate network with a username and password.
- Web-based management interface
SonicWALL CFS provides an easy-to-use web-based management interface for simple policy configuration and complete control over Internet usage.
- Integrated management and reporting
SonicWALL CFS can forward data directly into Dell SonicWALL's award-winning Global Management System (GMS) and ViewPoint reporting package to generate detailed reports on Internet usage.
