2018! Today's Web filtering landscape is very different, and we can expect even more big changes.
Legacy companies have been acquired. Venerable product lines are now in decline. Fast growing companies are delivering innovative, powerful new technology. And the needs of the marketplace are changing. Proper handling of HTTPS traffic is no longer an option, as encrypted traffic now accounts for over 40% of the total, and its share will continue to rise. Malware of many types is seriously impacting companies. Bad actors have become more sophisticated, using port-evasive techniques and leveraging non-standard protocols. Circuit speeds have leaped forward, with gigabit connections now common. This increased speed presents serious performance challenges for many product lines.

There is a tremendous amount of information to keep up with. But that is what we do. In fact, it is all we do. We have specialized in this particular industry for over 15 years. Most importantly, we have built our knowledge not by simply relying on product marketing collateral. Instead, it is based on real world experience with how the products actually perform in the field, how well the companies support their customers and how to properly configure solutions that work well in complex network environments. Put our knowledge to work for you!


Choose from all the top Web filtering companies. Remember, we are independent – so we can recommend the best solution for your specific needs – for any sized business, school or government agency.



Our professional staff has been working in this specific industry for many years. Our knowledge base really is unparalleled. We can offer valuable guidance to help you make the right decision for your unique situation.
