Content Filtering

The power to increase productivity and protection with advanced, real-time content filtering controls for small and medium businesses.

Avast Business Content Filtering is a flexible and highly effective way to help boost productivity and increase security by controlling your employees’ Internet usage. Be notified when a device visits sensitive websites with instant alerts via email. Set flexible policies for employees in the office, at home, or on the road while regulating access to specific sites.

Increase Productivity
Ensure proper Internet usage by limiting or blocking access to websites based on 60 different categories including social, entertainment, and shopping sites
Prevent Cyberthreats
Secure networks and users from cyberthreats with continuous evaluation of employees’ unknown or uncategorized web search results.
Simplify Management
Use out-of-the-box templates to quickly and automatically deploy new filtering policies, or create new default templates specifically for desktops and laptops that can be used by anyone.

Features

V-routing Technology

Our patented V-routing technology does not require rerouting of traffic or other methods that degrade internet speed.

Administrative Override

Administrators can manually override any policy that is blocking access to a particular website once they have reviewed and deemed valid.

Automatic Site Blocking

Schedule Content Filtering to automatically block websites based on pre-determined categories during work hours.

Dynamic Page Filtering

iCat Dynamic Filtering scans any pages not yet categorized in our database to ensure new threats don’t slip through.

Whitelist Policies

Create whitelist policies for websites that are required for business needs to explicitly allow access regardless of reputation.

Alerting and Reporting

Receive instant email alerts and review detailed reports on device activities, including when the activity occurred, the domain where it occurred, the action taken, and the number of attempts on Block/Warn/Allow websites.
