SAN DIEGO, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second year in a row, iBoss™ Enterprise Web Filter (http://www.iboss.com), the leading Web filtering and reporting solution for medium to large networks, has received a perfect five-star rating and a "Best Buy" nod from SC Magazine in the publication's 2011 Web Content Roundup.
In the independent, unsponsored 2011 Web Content Roundup at SC Magazine Labs, the top 12 Web content filters were extensively tested against manufacturer claims. In its review of iBoss Enterprise Web Filter, SC Magazine cited the appliance's "full feature set, including a vast application library" as strengths. As for weaknesses, reviewers found none. The verdict, according to SC Magazine: iBoss Enterprise is "solid, priced right and full-featured. (This) one is our 'Best Buy.'"
"The iBoss Enterprise Filter features a massive array of protection against Web-based threats," wrote Peter Stephenson, SC Magazine editor, "...(and) a massive URL database, along with gateway-level protection from spyware, malicious code and phishing attempts."
With over 15 million URLs and more than 75 Web categories in its URL database, the iBoss Enterprise Web Filter allows networks to block access to websites by category -- including adult, illegal, drugs, violence, gambling, dating, and many others -- or by specific websites or website patterns. iBoss Enterprise can filter by full URL, allowing some pages on a website but restricting others. The filtering extends seamlessly to secure (https/SSL) sites, and specific Internet ports can be blocked if needed.
iBoss Enterprise is just as flexible and robust when it comes to searching. Network administrators can strictly enforce safe searching and block particular keywords and terms. Accidental overblocking is eliminated, thanks to iBoss's advanced analytic capability.
On the monitoring side, iBoss Enterprise provides reports and allows administrators to access a centrally managed Web interface to monitor and log Internet activity and usage. A detailed, drill-down violation log lists attempted violations, with links to websites users attempted to access, violation categories, and offending computer nicknames.
"We are honored to receive SC Labs' Best Buy rating for another consecutive year," said Peter Martini, COO of iBoss Web Filters. "SC Magazine Labs is one of the most comprehensive reviews of enterprise security solutions, and this award represents our continued advancements to the iBoss Enterprise product line."
