Frontera Includes a Laptop Filter
For your laptops—including Windows 32- and 64-bit XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X using Version 10.5 or later on Intel and PPC—this is how remote filtering works. Your Acceptable Use Policy is enforced by Anywhere Filter™, the laptop filter included with Frontera for any users either working on your network or remotely. When off-network, any Internet browser requests from a laptop are communicated from BASCOM's Anywhere Filter to Frontera. The Frontera laptop filter then analyzes the requested URL to see if it is in the allowed content database. If it isn't, it sends a blocked and redirect message to the user.
Remote Filtering Simplifies Network Requirements
Therefore, regardless of what network your staff is using, your Internet filtering settings are implemented without the need for a VPN. Now, the Internet is secured with a remote filter that enforces your settings on your laptops.
