The Opendium Web Gateway is an appliance filter designed to provide filtering services for anywhere from 50 to 50,000 users. Based on our state-of-the-art dynamic deep inspection technology the Opendium Web Gateway provides everything you need to comply with UK government guidelines such as "Prevent" and "Keeping Children Safe in Education".
Workstations which are attached to your Windows domain will use Kerberos to authenticate invisibly, whilst Web Gateway will integrate with compatible Wifi controllers to identify users through RADIUS accounting for Bring Your Own Device networks. Devices which support the WISPr protocol will automatically log in on all Wifi networks.
Whilst full HTTPS decryption always offers the best protection, it is not always practical to install certificates on each device. Web Gateway can filter and monitor HTTPS traffic even without full decryption, allowing you to operate a true zero-configuration network.
Whilst much of the internet still uses the older IPv4 protocol, adoption of IPv6 is rapidly progressing. Networks which do not support IPv6 risk being left behind as new services emerge. You can use Web Gateway to provide partial IPv6 support without the need to deploy IPv6 across the whole network, or as part of a full network deployment.
Each Web Gateway updates its web site categorisation criteria once an hour to ensure the very best accuracy. We also operate an intensive research and development programme, continually providing software updates with new features and improvements.
By using content inspection, Web Gateway identifies the type of data which is being downloaded, allowing potential security risks such as executable files to be blocked.
Set policies which allow users to access social networking websites whilst restricting access to certain features such as Facebook's instant messaging service.
