Web Filtering Banner

Web Filtering

Web Filtering Service is a fast and flexible cloud based web filtering solution which is ideal for securing networks with multiple locations and remote, unsupervised or roaming users. Easily deployed by installing our Cloud Gateway software appliance or Cloud Link client software, it intercepts web traffic from any web browser on the computer using any Internet access point available; wired, Wi-Fi or Mobile. An easy to use and centralised web console allows you to control and report on all user activity.

Simple network integration ensures that people browsing the web are authenticated and that their activity is recorded. Flexible policies allow you to be granular about what web based content is acceptable on your network. Datastore365’s Web Filtering Service gives you the ability to scale up or down the number of users or devices as required and our simple and transparent pricing structure is charged on a per user basis.
