Problematic applications such as BitTorrent, Skype, and TOR can compromise available bandwidth and expose you to inappropriate and illegal activity. Using protocols that aren’t identified by conventional web filters, these types of applications are difficult to stop.
Smoothwall’s Firewall allows you to stop bad traffic at the gateway. Using Deep Packet Inspection, we are able to identify over 700 different kinds of traffic — even when it doesn’t want to be identified.
Smoothwall’s firewall is a Category 2 E-rate eligible product. To maintain E-rate eligibility, schools must also have a technological protection measure in place to ensure CIPA compliance.
Smoothwall is available on hardware, as software, or in a virtualized instance available on your existing hardware or in the cloud. Our appliances are available on a range of sizes to suit the needs of your network.
Our specially developed technologies deliver real-time Dynamic Content Analysis™ of web pages, all without impacting on the users’ experience.
