TeleMate.Net Software’s NetSpective Web Filter Outpaces the Competition

Share Article

Architectural changes introduced in Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11, and new editions of Chrome, Safari, and Firefox force Internet filtering companies to rethink traditional intercept techniques.

TeleMate.Net Software, a leading provider of Internet security solutions, announced availability of NetSpective WebFilter™ Version 4.02 with redesigned agent technology and SSL handling to address the increased rate in which Microsoft, Google, Apple, and Mozilla have been tightening security controls that have been traditional targets for exploits by spyware and adware programs.

“The primary challenge security company’s face is to balance network security and design considerations with performance requirements of filtering at wire speed”, stated Steven Tabaska, CEO of TeleMate.Net Software. “Whether filtering 18,000 Google ChromeBooks or the newly introduced Windows 8.1, NetSpective WebFilter addresses the transparent policy control educational network administrators need as demand for bandwidth increases in 2014.”

With the general availability of Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 Microsoft Filtering Platform provides a clear benefit for security products to be deployed as a Windows Driver versus a Layered Service Provider (LSP). A driver edition of NetSpective’s Remote Agent provides tighter integration with the operating system and independency from layered services supporting antivirus solutions. “In addition NetSpective’s design will significantly bolster the recognizable benefits of Macintosh and Global Proxy deployments supporting Mobile devices & BYOD initiatives”, added Steven Tabaska.

Web browsers have made subtle yet significant functionality changes to improve the end-user experience. New versions of Internet Explorer 11, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox have altered SSL handling by automatically downgrading subsequent SSL access attempts by dynamically changing the target IP address and transport layer version to ensuring successful connectivity to the target site. NetSpective WebFilter, available at 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps, has been enhanced to recognize this shift in behavior without affecting full wire speed operation.
