Implementing a web content WiFi filter for airports not only improves the quality of the service provided to travelers, but can also improve security. A web filter creates a safe browsing environment and prevents travelers and airport staff from accessing inappropriate online content.
Prevent Travelers and Staff from Accessing Inappropriate Online Content
One of the main reasons for implementing a web content WiFi filter for airports is to prevent travelers and airport staff from accessing inappropriate online content. Although protecting minors and other members of society from potentially harmful or offensive material can sometimes be achieved with an acceptable use policy, a web content filter for airports polices what online content can be accessed on order to prevent inappropriate online content from being openly viewed in places of public access.
A Web Content WiFi Filter for Airports Can be Used to Keep the Network Secure
The threat from malware and hacking is increasing. Mobile devices are a target for cybercriminals, and WiFi networks can now be infected maliciously or accidently by an infected mobile device connecting to it. By implementing a web content WiFi filter for airports, websites known to contain malware can be blocked and the risk of drive-by malware downloads reduced. This security measure will help to keep an airport’s network protected, while also creating a much safer Internet environment for travelers.
Reduce the Strain on Airport WiFi Networks
One of the issues faced by operators of public WiFi access points is ensuring sufficient bandwidth is available for all users. Certain online activities can eat up bandwidth considerably, such as downloading large files, streaming sports events, or watching online movies. A web content WiFi filter for airports can be configured to reduce the strain on a WiFi network, restrict the bandwidth that is allocated to each user and ensure that all users are able to connect to the network and receive acceptable Internet speeds.
