Netsweeper provides world-class content filtering, scalable from a small schools and companies to the largest telcos.
Some of the numbers behind our success:
5 billion URLs categorized (and counting)
Our cloud-based AIs scan and categorize new web content based on the usage patterns of Netsweeper users worldwide. This translates into 10 to 15 million new URIs categorized and added to our Master Category Name Servers every day. When you factor in the activity across all Netsweeper deployments, including both allowed and blocked content, Netsweeper servers are processing about a million URIs every second.
40,000 new proxies blocked every day
Web based proxies are a frequently used approach to try and evade web filtering. Netsweeper identifies and blocks more than 40,000 new web proxy URIs daily.
Especially in large deployments with lots of traffic, adding a 'hop' to the network traffic not only creates another potential point of failure, it slows down your traffic. Netsweeper is deployable out of band; this, coupled with the advanced architecture of our technology, means that Netsweeper imposes no latency to approved traffic and instead only interacts with traffic that must be filtered.
90% of traffic is categorized locally
90% of traffic is categorized in your local Netsweeper cache, which 'learns' from YOUR users traffic and becomes tailored to your exact needs as you use it. This greatly improves the speed and accuracy of your filtering.
200,000 new porn URIs categorized daily
Pornography is a key factor behind the drive for web filtering technology. Porn sites are also among the most rapidly changing and expanding sectors of the web. Netsweeper categorizes more than 200,000 new porn URIs every single day, helping to ensure that inappropriate content is blocked.
70% less hardware
Netsweeper helps you maintain your Green IT policies with its very modest hardware and infrastructure requirements. Netsweeper typically requires 70% ro 90% less hardware than other solutions to deliver web filtering. Netsweeper is also hardware 'agnostic', which means you can use standard Intel-based hardware rather than expensive proprietary appliances.
