Web Gateway and UTM User Manual

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".

Opendium UTM provides the same functionality as Web Gateway, but with additional unified threat management capabilities, such as per-user control of non-web traffic, control of traffic between internal networks and support for site-to-site and remote worker VPNs.

Both Web Gateway and UTM also offer an optional email filter module.

User Interface Overview

DashboardAfter you log into your Opendium server, you will initially see the Dashboard. This page allows you to see a brief overview of the system's current status and is continually updated. Each part of the system, provides some status information, and you can drag the information boxes that are most pertinent to you from each section into the Overview section of the page. This allows you to choose which information you are most interested in and would like to be presented each time you open the dashboard.

Along the top of the page, there are clickable tabs, which take you into the various parts of the system. Many of the tabs have additional subsections, which can be accessed through a secondary set of tabs that will appear whenever any subsections are available. At all times, the "You are here" line displays a clickable trail of breadcrumbs so you don't get lost.

In the top-right of each page is a help button, which will take you to the appropriate section of this manual, and as always, our support department is always happy to help.

Most settings throughout the system can have comments attached to them to allow you to document your configuration. We thoroughly recommend that you make extensive use of these comments, as it is much easier to understand things when you come to review the settings several years down the line.
