SonicWall Content Filtering Service (CFS) running on SonicWall Unified Threat Management and next generation firewalls (NGFWs) is a powerful protection and productivity solution that delivers unequaled content filtering enforcement for educational institutions, businesses, libraries and government agencies. Using SonicWall CFS, organizations have control over the websites students and employees can access using their IT-issued computer behind the firewall. SonicWall CFS compares requested websites against a massive database in the cloud containing millions of rated URLs, IP addresses and websites. CFS provides administrators with the tools to create and apply policies that allow or deny access to sites based on individual or group identity, or by time of day, for over 56 pre-defined categories. CFS also dynamically caches website ratings locally on the SonicWall firewall for near instantaneous response times.
