From the popular Californian-based Barracuda is Barracuda Web Security Gateway, a highly robust web security platform with web content filtering capabilities. The solution allows for safe internet browsing and navigation of online applications. The platform ensures that users are not exposed to web-borne malware and viruses, misused bandwidth, and lost productivity. The platform has extensive granular policies and capabilities. It has the ability to control access to web sites, pages, applications, and web 2.0 platforms based on users, groups, bandwidth, and time of access. In addition to providing strong spyware, malware, and virus protection, the platform also offers social-network regulation, remote filtering for your remote users, and visibility into SSL-encrypted traffic.
