Content filtering solutions from Affinity IT can block inappropriate websites from staff/students. It is particularly useful to enforce IT policies, for instance blocking or limiting access times to personal webmail sites like Hotmail can improve productivity.
Although no software is as reliable as a parent or teacher keeping a watchful eye over sites accessed, Content Filtering Software and Appliances add a good, strong layer of defense. Typically such systems will use methods such as keyword matching or blocking, site blocking, keyboard blocking, or protocol-blocking systems. Many filtering systems will also provide facilities to filter or block applications also, such as email and file-sharing applications. Our standard filters would block what is normally accepted to be inappropriate or illegal content - for example pornography, violence, racist or criminal content.
In addition to the filtering of sites, most solutions can give you the ability to report on internet access to manually spot anything that may sneak through.
