The M86 Web Filtering and Reporting Suite delivers high-performance, enterprise-quality filtering via a suite of optimized, task-specific appliances. Residing outside the flow of network traffic, it executes passive observation and approval/denial of outbound Web requests. This pass-by/SPAN port methodology results in unmatched network compatibility, performance and fail-safe confidence. Anchored by a broad and deep URL database organized into over 100 categories identifying millions of Web sites, the M86 Web Filtering and Reporting Suite has been ranked among the most accurate Web security solutions for the over 10 years.

Reporting with the M86 Web Filtering and Reporting Suite is a completely different experience compared to reporting with other Web filtering products. Engineered and dedicated to meet true "real time" expectations, the suite’s Security Reporter processes granular data queries—down to the user and specific Web page—at speeds that deliver fast results and retrieve archive data in a fraction of the time that other products require. Additionally, the M86 Web Filtering and Reporting Suite is designed with today’s business, education and government archival requirements in mind. Should additional data retention be required, the M86 Web Filtering and Reporting Suite provides clients with custom NAS configurations.

Finally, the M86 Web Filtering and Reporting Suite monitoring solution bridges the gap between detection and action. By setting customized thresholds, administrators can "watch" outbound Web traffic 24/7; automatically receiving alerts to AUP violations, bandwidth threats and other suspect Web activity. It can even shut down user access if needed—in real time. The M86 WFR Suite can be implemented through a single, integrated "M86 Web Filter and Reporter" appliance or a dedicated "M86 Web Filter" appliance with a dedicated "M86 Security Reporter" appliance.

 

 

Features

  • M86 Web Filter Database: Filters the Internet via URLs and/or IP addresses, file types (e.g. MP3, MPEG, .zip), HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, Newsgroups (NNTP), and TCP Ports. Includes security categories on spyware, malicious code and phishing sites.
  • Application Control: Controls over 90+ applications. WFR Suite utilizes M86 Security’s Intelligent Footprint Technology (IFT) to block IM and P2P servers by signature or pattern.
  • Internet Usage Policy Control: Provides administrators the ability to block, warn, or implement quota on Internet use.
  • "X-Strikes" Blocking: Locks down a user’s workstation when administrator-defined thresholds for accessing inappropriate Web sites are exceeded.
