Mobile Device and BYOD filtering

With the dramatic growth of smartphones, tablets and laptops and the popularity of BYOD, you need to be able to proactively control Web traffic to ensure that any Web browsing complies with your organisation’s Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

Through flexible deployment options including VLAN support and a wide range of authentication option, the Bloxx Web Filter  lets you rapidly deploy filtering to effectively filter managed or unmanaged devices.

Improved Compliance

With a full audit trail of Web traffic, devices and users, you can ensure any Web browsing is compliant from domain devices or BYODs.  

Effectively Manage BYOD Traffic

There’s no single prescriptive approach to managing BYOD Web browsing. The flexibility of the Bloxx Web Filter means that you can change your approach to filtering as your BYOD program evolves. No matter if you need to tie the user into the same policy they have on a managed device or give them restricted access on a BYOD policy, the Bloxx Web Filter will fit into your BYOD program not the other way around.

Securely Deploy Guest Wi-Fi Access 

Giving Wi-Fi access to visitors or guests can be problematic. The Bloxx Web Filter lets you set up access with no user authentication but with Web browsing controlled through a policy, or authenticated and filtered through login credentials you supply.

Preserve Network Bandwidth

Mobile or BYOD devices can be a drain on your network bandwidth. The Bloxx Web Filter lets you block access to bandwidth hungry sites or control usage using Bandwidth Control.  

Filtering for Remote Windows Devices

The Bloxx Intelligent Remote Filtering Client for Windows restricts Web access made through Windows devices such as laptops and tablets to a company's filtering policy by forcing Web requests to be made directly through the Bloxx Web Filter. The application also ensures that Web access continues to be filtered even when a user is accessing the Web through a public Wi-Fi hotspot or a mobile broadband connection.

This uniquely solves the problem of having to manually maintain an allow list of Wi-Fi providers on each device. Without this, users would either be denied access to the Internet or allowed unfiltered access.
