Scalable, dynamic solution to block non-productive web content
Illegal or inappropriate web sites can easily be accessed by any network user with a browser. These same sites are often infected with malware that can be used to steal confidential information and drain employee productivity, as well as put your organization at risk for regulatory non-compliance, funding withdrawal and even criminal liability. An example of these regulatory requirements is that schools and libraries that receive E-Rate funding are required by law to install a content filtering solution that complies with the Childrens Internet Protection Act (CIPA).
Dell SonicWALL Content Filtering Service (CFS) provides unequalled content filtering enforcement for businesses, educational institutions, libraries and government agencies, as well as distributed public Internet hotspots. Available as a subscription service for all Dell SonicWALL TZ, Network Security Appliance (NSA) and E-Class NSA firewalls or as part of a Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite or TotalSecure subscription, Dell SonicWALL CFS blocks inappropriate content, reduces organizational liability and increases productivity for organizations of any size. Dell SonicWALL CFS utilizes a comprehensive database of millions of URLs, IP addresses and web sites. Using a high-performance rating and caching architecture, CFS dynamically updates ratings locally on a Dell SonicWALL firewall for instantaneous comparison. With CFS, administrators can apply access or denial policies based upon over 59 URL categories, individual or group identity, or time of day.
Features and benefits
Granular content filtering allows the administrator to block or apply bandwidth management to all pre-defined categories or any combination of categories. Administrators can apply User Level Authentication (ULA) and Single Sign-On (SSO) to enforce username and password logon. CFS can block potentially harmful content such as Java, ActiveX, and Cookies, as well as schedule filtering by time of day, such as during school or business hours. CFS also enhances performance by filtering out IM, MP3s, streaming media, freeware and other files that drain bandwidth.
Dynamically updated rating architecture cross-references all requested web sites against a highly accurate database categorizing millions of URLs, IP addresses and domains. The Dell SonicWALL firewall receives ratings in real time, and then compares that rating to the local policy setting. The appliance will then either allow or deny the request, based on the administrators locally configured policy.
Application traffic analytics suite includes Dell SonicWALL Global Management System (GMS), Dell SonicWALL Analyzer and Dell SonicWALL Scrutinizer, which provides real-time and historic analysis of data transmitted through the firewall, including web sites blocked and visited by user.
Easy-to-use web-based management enables flexible policy configuration and complete control over Internet usage. Administrators can enforce multiple custom policies for individual users, groups or specific category types. Local URL filtering controls can allow or deny specific domains or hosts. To block objectionable material more effectively, administrators can also create or customize filtering databases.
High-performance web caching and rating architecture allows administrators to block sites easily and automatically by category. URL ratings are cached locally on the Dell SonicWALL firewall, so that response time for subsequent access of frequently visited sites is only a fraction of a second.
IP-based HTTPS content filtering allows administrators to control user access to web sites over encrypted HTTPS. HTTPS filtering is based on the categorical rating of inappropriate web site types, such as gambling, online banking, online brokerage and trading, shopping and hacking/proxy avoidance.
Scalable, cost-effective solution controls content filtering from the Dell SonicWALL firewall, eliminating the need for additional hardware or deployment expenditures on a separate dedicated filtering server.
