Internet Content Control
The Clavister Next-Generation Firewall provides a solution to this with Internet Content Control. Built in category identification simply groups URLs of internet services and content into about 90 different categories.
These include “Adult Content” and “Gambling” but also “Academic Fraud”, “Humor” and “Sports”, making is easy to block access to both inappropriate content and irrelevant content for for instance the lecture in progress.
Teachers can control access per category on demand or with a time-based schedule due to the extensive provisioning capabilities through the REST API in the Clavister Next-Generation Firewall. It empowers students to learn in a safe environment and secures public access is used appropriately.
Restrict individual sites or categories of services and content
