The web has become an integral part of every business. At the same time, social media has transformed the web into a dynamic and complex environment - ideal for the proliferation of malware in increasingly covert and sophisticated ways.
This evolving environment makes it more difficult to manage web access and bandwidth use. It also introduces security challenges that web filtering may be uniquely suited to address. With over 20 million web sites created in 2010 alone, it is critical that web security solutions provide accurate site ratings, global diverse coverage, and real-time rating of new URLs.
