WebTitan Cloud for WiFi is a powerful, easy-to-administer and flexible web content filter for wireless WiFi ISPs that can be used to prevent Internet users accessing websites likely to result in a malware or ransomware download, websites on which illegal activities can be conducted, or websites whose content is unsuitable for viewing in a public environment.
Many governments and local authorities are now producing Internet filtering guidelines for ISPs, or have introduced legislation that requires certain types of website content to be blocked. Even when ISP web filtering is not mandatory, many wireless WiFi network providers choose to implement Internet filtering solutions in order to keep their users safe online.
Benefits of Internet Content Filtering for WiFi Internet Service Providers
There are many benefits of Internet content filtering for WiFi Internet service providers and, more importantly, their clients. Internet content filtering reduces the risks from malware and ransomware. Controls can be applied to prevent certain file types from being downloaded, websites known to be used for phishing attacks can be blocked, and exploit kits prevented from deploying their malicious software.
An Internet filter can also be used to block adult content such as pornography, prevent users from accessing extreme and offensive content, or to block websites of a homophobic, racist, sexist, or inflammatory nature. Viewing these topics most likely contravenes your clients´ acceptable use policies and could cause offense to colleagues or non-Internet users if they were viewed indiscreetly.
