What is the Content Filter?
The Content Filter is an extremely powerful feature that allows you to implement your or your customers Internet Usage Policy.
The LucidView Web-Crawler is constantly crawling the web collecting content and placing it into appropriate categories.
The Content Filter gives you the tools necessary to decide what categories are available to your customers, when these categories are available (i.e. time-based rules for specific categories such as Social Media) and what priority each category takes during times of peak saturation (see Saturation Manager).
The Content Filter is firewall based and thus extremely difficult to circumvent.
