Just because it’s behind the scenes doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be responsive and pleasing to the eye.

Our service's web-based dashboard gives you a global view of all your networks and statistics with ease, regardless of size, complexity, and your location.

Our proprietary internet filtering algorithms intelligently categorize sites so you don’t have to constantly maintain a list of blocked sites. You can even enforce Google SafeSearch, YouTube restricted mode, and block uncategorized/unknown sites so nothing slips through the cracks.Web Content Filtering Policies and Categories
While our content categories handle the meat-and-potatoes of your internet policy, our custom whitelists and blacklists take care of the fine details. Combined with the ability to quickly and dynamically assign different policies to different networks on-the-fly, our service gives you the power to curate the exact websites that your users have access to while remaining protected against the most commonly blocked content on the web.

Our simple, lightweight graphing and data display allows you to clearly visualize usage patterns and top destinations on each network or across all your networks.
You’ll get cogent reports on all the details that matter:
Network Usage - Get details and trends for total requests, queries per second, most active networks, and top requests.
Security Report - Quantify the level of protection you’re delivering to your networks and identify the source and frequency of attacks against your networks
Billing Report - Estimate the costs of your network protection and content filtering with concrete numbers based on usage

An industry first - our service is the only web content filtering service which provides real-time domain categorization.
What does this mean?
If one of your users visits a site that is not contained within our database, we will use our intelligent algorithms to determine what category this unknown site falls into and either allow or deny the request based upon your policy. You even have the ability to enable an "interstitial" page (pictured), which can hold the user at a "categorizing" page until we provide the result, ensuring your network remains as clean and secure as possible.
Another industry exclusive, our service provides support for networks with dynamic IP addresses. Currently, we support Dynamic DNS hostnames from DynDNS, DNS-O-Matic, No-IP, Namecheap, HE Tunnelbroker, HE FreeDNS, DNS Park, Dynu and Afraid.org Free DNS. Simply enter your dynamic hostname into our dashboard and we will seamlessly and transparently process all the updates from your updater client, even through IP changes.
