smoothwallSmoothwall offer a range of security products, including their award-winning web content-filtering system. The Guardian Web Filter delivers world-class filtering, monitoring and reporting based on Smoothwall Dynamic Content Analysis technology and URL lists.

Smoothwall was the first security vendor to develop intelligent content-based web page analysis, a now-essential technology that has rendered URL-blocklist based filters all but obsolete in the context of today’s dynamic web. The company’s award winning web filter uses this real-time intelligent technology to protect millions of users worldwide, solving the challenge of protecting end users and networks from undesirable content, while still allowing open access to legitimate on-line resources.

The web content-filter and firewall can be linked to Microsoft Active Directory, allowing you to give different levels of access to different groups of users. It is also possible to restrict access based on the time of day – helping you to focus users’ attention during core hours without denying them access at other times.

Thousands of institutions, from schools to colleges, to local authorities, rely on Smoothwall security and web content filtering technology – their Guardian Web Filter product has UK government Department for Education (formerly BECTA) accreditation and is fully CIPA compliant.

Intuitive reporting provides the detail needed to understand all activity with real-time logs that show individual user browsing to trends and site specific reports.
