Granular content filtering allows the administrator to block or apply bandwidth management to all predefined 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.
Dynamically updated rating architecture cross-references all requested web sites against a highly accurate database categorizing millions of URLs, IP addresses and domains. The SonicWall firewall receives ratings in real time, and then compares each rating to the local policy setting. The appliance will then either allow or deny the request based on the administrator’s locally configured policy.
Application traffic analytics suite includes SonicWall Global Management System (GMS), SonicWall Analyzer and SonicWall Scrutinizer, each of 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 and unproductive material more effectively, administrators can also create or customize filtering lists.
