Network Box Releases Web Content Filtering Engine for Google Safe Search and Safe Browsing

Aug. 25, 2008

HOUSTON , Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Network Box USA, Inc. (, the American arm of managed security company Network Box Corp., today announced the beta release of a web content filtering technology to support Google Safe Search and Safe Browsing functions. The new capabilities, which will be standard on Network Box unified threat management (UTM) products, will allow businesses to easily implement protection against Internet threats and prevent sites and web pages with inappropriate content from appearing in search engine results.

With the added functionality, Network Box USA customers will now have a content filtering engine that uses Google's Safe Browsing system to check URL requests against Google's constantly updated blacklist of suspected phishing- and malware-infested web pages. These web filter categories will be in addition to Network Box's existing anti-virus and anti-phishing solution, which uses Kaspersky and ClamAV to inspect pages for malicious content.

The new Google Safe Search feature will let customers filter search results and eliminate sites and web pages that contain inappropriate content. It will now be possible to configure the Network Box so that it implements the filter on Google search engine searches and enables safe searching. This will complement the full SurfControl database each Network Box currently deploys to protect users from inappropriate content.

"Google Safe Search and Safe Browsing help protect against Internet threats and offensive content, but the web filters need to be set up individually for each PC on the network - a very time-consuming process," said Pierluigi Stella , CTO of Network Box USA, Inc. "Because Network Box's new web content filtering engine will be standard on our managed security service, these features will be set up at the Internet gateway, which means they can be quickly and easily applied across a customers' entire network."
