Read Reviews of The Top Cloud Web Filtering Platforms

What is Cloud Web Filtering?

Cloud Web Filtering or Secure Web Gateway platforms protect internet connected devices from harmful web content. They filter harmful websites so that internet users cannot access them and block online viruses and malware from being downloaded to PCs. Web Filtering platforms will scan for malicious website code, filter harmful URLs and provide data loss prevention.

Web Filtering problems also make sure that employees are not accessing harmful or inappropriate materials online. The platforms in this category offer a range of features which allows admins to set policies over what websites people can access. This usually stops people from being able to access gambling sites or adult content. It’s important there are customisable controls around who can access what websites different users can access, so that if management wants to block social media access for people in sales, people in marketing can still access company social media profiles. It’s also increasingly important that these platforms work on mobile devices.

As well as security and website filtering, these platforms give admins real time visibility as well as a range of reports and analytics into how employees are using the internet. Being hosted in the cloud, these platforms offer always on security, with low cost deployment options
