WiFi FilteringHome / DNS Filtering and Web Security from WebTitan / WiFi Filtering
WiFi filtering enables organizations to protect their WiFi routers and their guests´ devices from malicious online security threats.
WiFi filters create a safer browsing environment for organizations by blocking user access to inappropriate content, and limiting excessive bandwidth use as required – ensuring all staff and guests can access the internet as required.
WiFi filters also offer an insight into user browsing activities and can be used to enhance staff productivity as a result.
WiFi filtering software has three layers:
These layers allow organizations to improve staff productivity and to prevent users from being exposed to online content they may find offensive, or that contravenes the organization’s Internet usage policies.
WiFi filtering software offers a high degree of granularity - category and keyword filters are extremely flexible and can be applied to individual network users, groups of users, or to all network users. They can also be applied by time, with the opportunity to restrict access to pornography until a certain watershed, for example.
Network administrators can also add all trusted, business-critical websites to a whitelist – so they can bypass all filtering mechanisms.
Unfiltered guest WiFi potentially exposes customers to malicious phishing and malware attacks, which have far-reaching consequences.
By offering guest WiFi, without WiFi filtering protection in place, there is the possibility users may use the network to access unsavoury online content. Take coffee shops or public libraries for example, if a customer accesses adult material using the guest WiFi network, there is a possibility other customers will inadvertently be exposed to it– it certainly isn’t a good look for the business.
WiFi filtering goes beyond protecting an organization’s own network and users and freeing up staff productivity – there is a duty of care to customers at play also.
Blocking inappropriate websites not only adds to the comfort of the customers’ service experience, it also protects organizations from potential future lawsuits, where inappropriate material is unlawfully accessed - and the WiFi provider could be found liable.
WiFi filtering software is easy to implement, inexpensive to operate and extremely versatile in terms of keyword and category filters that can be applied.
