Content Filtering Products: A Trend Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Content filtering refers to a subsystem that implements security policies on data passing through the system; or a program or code section, which matches all input and output requests against specific qualifying criteria, and subsequently forwards or processes the requests. Content filtering software is mainly used for restricting content on the Internet delivered through emails, web browsers or other modes. The growing focus on internet content regulation and internet censorship against a backdrop of the increase in objectionable content online is driving demand for content filtering products. While consumer adoption of these products is driven by the need to filter inappropriate content, enterprise adoption of the same is triggered by the need to enhance employee productivity by blocking access to websites such as online shopping portals that violate company policies. Demand for enterprise quality web filtering is also benefitting from the need to continuously scan website codes, and emails to prevent malware, spyware and malicious viruses from infecting the corporate network.
