Cisco IOS Content Filtering is a Web security solution that helps organizations protect against known and new Internet threats, improve employee productivity, and enforce business policies for regulatory compliance.
Cisco IOS Content Filtering is ideally suited for small medium businesses and enterprise branch offices that need a scalable, low-maintenance solution.
As employees surf the Internet, they expose themselves to websites that are known to give out malware, adware, spyware, and phishing. This not only causes downtime, but also revenue losses.
Deployed on Cisco integrated services routers, Cisco IOS Content Filtering offers category-based productivity and security ratings. Content-aware security ratings protect against malware, malicious code, phishing attacks, and spyware. URL and keyword blocking help to ensure that employees are productive when accessing the Internet. This is a subscription-based hosted solution that leverages Trend Micro's global TrendLabs threat database, and is closely integrated with Cisco IOS.

Regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), and Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) mandate reliable content filtering. Cisco IOS Content Filtering uses industry-leading technology validated by TrendMicro's TrendLabs, a global network of research centers committed to constant threat surveillance and attack prevention.
