Share Article

Today Danware A/S launches NetOp Netfilter. The filter uses a visual image analysis which ensures a dynamic and efficient filtering of homepages with undesirable con-tents. Impressive test results and positive customer response provide good sales prospects.

Within recent years companies all over the world have become very attentive of the risks involved in the great mobility of their employees and the free navigation on the Internet. Also public institutions have really started to make investments in software solutions for secure content management, and therefore this market experiences solid growth during these years

Under the slogan ”Get the full picture” Danware A/S launches today the latest member of the NetOp product family, NetOp Netfilter. With NetOp Netfilter companies and organisations can easily and efficiently get an overview of the Internet traffic and block access to specific types of homepages.

”The Internet is one of the most important working tools of the modern company, but the great freedom in cyberspace has also resulted in a great demand for flexible and efficient monitoring products. With NetOp Netfilter we can meet the great demand of the market, and today’s launch-ing is well in line with our strategy about developing IT security as an independent business area,” says Peter Grøndahl, CEO at Danware A/S.

The launching of NetOp Netfilter is the first concrete result of Danware’s purchase of 50% of the shares in the Danish software company Enologic. At Danware the filter has been fine-tuned and translated so that it is now available in English, German and Danish versions. This opens new and exciting business opportunities for Danware:

”Within recent years companies all over the world have become very attentive of the risks involved in the great mobility of their employees and the free navigation on the Internet. Also public institutions have really started to make investments in software solutions for secure content management, and therefore this market experiences solid growth during these years,” says Per Andersen, Group Vice President at IDC Europe.

Best in test

This intensifies the competition on the market for monitoring and filtering products, but with NetOp Netfilter Danware holds a good hand: NetOp Netfilter is different from the competing products by being a dynamic filter which via advanced technology reads and analyses the contents of the web pages searched for.

”A typical problem in connection with many Internet filters is the fact that they can only filter out already known homepages. This means that providers of e.g. child-pornographic material can ’cheat’ the filter by placing their homepages at different addresses which often have names that are difficult to decipher. NetOp Netfilter excels by performing text and image analysis of the indi-vidual homepage, and therefore it can register when the user tries to click into pages with an undesirable content. Therefore NetOp Netfilter possesses clear advantages in relation to the competing products,” says Danware CEO, Peter Grøndahl.

Already before today’s launching, NetOp Netfilter has manifested its qualities as, within the framework of Enologic, the filter has been the winner of several product tests in leading professional media in Denmark.

The Danish Army Operational Command tightens the IT security with Netop Netfilter

However, not only the trade press is positive as regards NetOp Netfilter. Several Danish companies and organizations use NetOp Netfilter today as they are existing Enologic customers. One of them is the Army Operational Command (HOK) which has used the filter since 2001. The filter fully meets all the requirements of the Command:

”Before we invested in NetOp Netfilter the employees sometimes used the Internet access to chat, download media files and visit web pages with contents which might appear offensive. These activities have now been halted efficiently as they both rob working time and can be a strain on the network,” says IT Administrator Erling Mathiasen of the Army Operational Command who has the main responsibility for all 250 IT users of HOK being able to navigate securely on the Internet.

A free trial of NetOp Netfilter is available at netfilter.netop.com.
