The Web Filter category consists of applications such as Content Filter, Web Access Control, and Web Proxy Server.
Content Filter: The primary functionality of the Content Filter application is to block websites that are considered ‘inappropriate’ and work as a web filter. Although the application comes with default settings, the administrator can setup customized content filtering policies based on standard block parameters such as Blacklists, Phrase Lists, MIME Types, File Extensions, Banned Sites, Gray Sites, and Exception Sites. The content filter application is capable of blocking both ‘http’ and ‘https’ connections with the help of default or manually configured content filtering policies. The content filter policies can be assigned to a group of users or to specific devices connected to the Crystal Eye network.
Web Access Control: Web Access Control allows an administrator to enforce time-of-day web access to groups or specific devices using web proxy. To enable Web Access Control features, the administrator would have to define the time for which the web access restrictions are to be imposed. The secondary level of configuration involves tagging a user group, IP Address, or a MAC Address with the applied time restrictions.
Web Proxy Server: Crystal Eye’s Web Proxy Server app acts as an intermediary for web requests originating from a network. The basic functionality of this app is providing improved page access time, decrease bandwidth use and provides site visit audits of the users and IP addresses in the CE XDR network.
