BASCOM Fortifies the Dynamic Proxy Detection System Built into its Filtering Appliances for K-12 Schools and Libraries

Hauppauge, New York—March 22, 2010 - BASCOM Global Internet Services, Inc., an industry leader in filtering appliance solutions for K-12 schools and libraries, today announces a security enhancement to its Global Chalkboard for K-12 schools and Patronus for libraries. This improvement is designed to keep students and young patrons in libraries focused and safe by eliminating distractions, such as social networking sites.

For up-to-date security, BASCOM’s Global Chalkboard and Patronus filtering appliances now include an improved Dynamic Proxy Detection System to prevent students from circumventing the filter using a proxy site. The security of BASCOM’s appliances continues to evolve in lockstep with current security challenges. Our Development Team is committed to improving our solutions to keep up with the latest security challenges.

 “Our detection system uses a heuristic approach that analyzes the patterns in the requested URL,” states Robert DeRosa, BASCOM’s Chief Technology Officer.  “If our filtering appliance detects a suspicious pattern for any site not yet blocked by the Remote Proxies filter category, it dynamically stops access to that site.”
