Overview: This case study shows how the Bloxx Web Filtering appliance with Tru-View Technology proved to be the most efficient and cost-effective all-in-one solution for Woods Services, who had been struggling to manage two web filtering solutions to monitor the online activity of students, residents and staff. Automatic updates to the URL database and upgrades frequently failed to occur, leaving IT staff to manually update the system, and ultimately drained IT resources. Students were also finding ways to use anonymous proxies to bypass the solutions in place. These factors led Woods to seek out a new solution.
The Bloxx Web filtering appliance with Tru-View Technology combines the best of traditional methods with its patented language analysis and intelligent identification techniques, providing three levels of protection. Performing a live analysis and real time categorization of Web pages, the Bloxx appliances are quicker and more accurate than traditional Web filters that use only manual classifications of URLs and keywords. This means that even if the Web page is not in the URL database, or if access is attempted via an anonymous proxy, the page will still be analyzed and classified to protect the user from inappropriate material.
These features addressed Woods Services’ concerns and convinced it to install two Bloxx TVT-1250HA Web filtering appliances to monitor and manage both of the facility’s Internet connections.
