Today's organizations rely increasingly on the Internet for access to information and resources. Businesses, schools and government agencies provide their employees, students and partners with access not only to internal networks, but to the outside world as well. The benefits of the Internet are great, but so are the risks. The opportunity to connect to Web sites that contain information and images that are objectionable or even illegal can leave organizations vulnerable to legal liabilities and unwanted security risks. Unrestricted Web access and the use of instant messaging (IM) and peer-to-peer (P2P) applications compete for employees' time and can result in tremendous losses in productivity and exposures to unwanted worms, trojans and viruses.
Now there's a standalone solution that enables security administrators to control Web usage, manage the use of time-wasting applications and reduce security risks. Dell SonicWALL's Content Security Manager 2100 Content Filter (CF) is an appliance-based Internet filtering solution that enhances security and employee productivity, optimizes network utilization and mitigates legal liabilities by providing a powerful tool to enforce Internet usage policies and block access to inappropriate and unproductive Web content and applications. The Dell SonicWALL Content Security Manager 2100 CF Update Service 500 Users is a one-year upgrade service that enables an additional 500 users to connect to the CSM 2100 CF appliance at one time.
Real-time gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware scanning over a multitude of widely-used protocols and ports delivers complete protection by eliminating viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware and other Internet threats at the gateway before they can infect the network.
Powerful Internet filtering provides granular, policybased controls to manage access to inappropriate, unproductive and potentially illegal Web content.
Instant messaging (IM), peer-to-peer (P2P) and multimedia controls improve network performance, block security threats and protect against legal liabilities.
Seamless integration behind virtually any firewall enables organizations to leverage the existing network infrastructure without the need to purchase additional hardware.
Granular policy control via single sign-on streamlines user authentication and the management of access to network resources and online content.
High availability ensures the network is always protected and productivity remains uninterrupted by automatically failing over to a secondary CSM 2100 CF should the primary unit fail.
Powerful Web-based reporting provides greater insight into network usage through custom reports that can be viewed in multiple formats.
