The Network Box ‘S-Scan’ engine is a high speed web content filtering system, designed to help organizations block undesirable web content from reaching their users.
When combined with ‘Google Safe Browsing,’ there are sixteen categories of undesirable content, covering websites which might directly harm an organization’s computer systems (websites compromised by malware), as well as websites which include subject matter that may be criminal in nature (hacking sites), cause offence (sexually explicit or hate sites), or otherwise harm users (spyware or fraud).
The Network Box ‘S-Scan’ engine is not restricted to any one language or geography, and aims to cover websites hosted across the globe, wherever they might be located.
Apart from Content filtering technologies, Network Box’s Unified Threat Management also includes Firewall, VPN, IDP, Anti-Spam, Anti-Malware, Data Leakage Protection, Vulnerability Scanning, and Network Box’s award-winning real-time PUSH update technology, 24x7 monitoring, and expert remote management, which protect against both known and unknown cyber threats.
