CensorNet Hosted Web Security is a fast and flexible cloud based web filtering solution which is ideal for securing networks with multiple locations and remote, unsupervised or roaming users. Easily deployed by installing our Cloud Gateway software appliance or Cloud Link client software, it intercepts web traffic from any web browser on the computer using any Internet access point available; wired, Wi-Fi or 3G. An easy to use and centralised web console allows you to control and report on all user activity.
Unlike competitor products we do not proxy the data between each computer and the cloud. This provides a superior browsing experience for the user and reduces the amount of bandwidth required at either end. The Cloud Gateway or Cloud Link client takes care of this along with user authentication and security.
Look no further than our unique "no proxy" alternative to solutions such as zScaler, Webroot, ScanSafe, WebSense. Cloud based proxying has many disadvantages including latency and masking your real IP address. Provide a consistent web filtering experience across multiple networks and devices (laptops, desktops, smartphones, tablets) with our Hybrid Web Security product.
