BrowseControl is a web filter that blocks websites based on URLs and categories. Internet use quotas can be set based on schedules and timers.
BrowseControl's content filtering features allow administrators to configure the internet and application usage permissions of the students, employees, and patrons that use computers within their network.
Content filtering policies for websites, applications, and files can be granularly controlled with filters based on URL, categories, internet ports, and file types. Each configuration option can be customized based on users, devices, departments, or Organizational Units (OUs) to provide a solution that fits the organization's exact needs.
BrowseControl's filtering features are most often used for preventing access to malware-infested websites, productivity management, CIPA compliance, and enforcing acceptable use policies by proactively preventing employees from accessing inappropriate or unproductive websites.
