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.
