Company Seeks To Untangle Web Filtering Abilities

Untangle, a company that offers open source security solutions, said that it will pit six top Web content filtering solutions against each other to discover how each fares at filtering porn. The comparison will take place during the RSA Conference on April 9 and the results we be made available to the public shortly thereafter.

According to a 2007 survey by the American Management Association and ePolicy Institute, when it comes to Web filtering, 96 percent of companies are most concerned about blocking employee access to pornography.

"No filter is going to catch everything, said Dirk Morris, CTO and Co-Founder of Untangle. "So we’re benchmarking the industry to give everyone a better idea of what to expect."

The Web filters slated for comparison include solutions from Barracuda Networks, Fortinet, ScanSafe, Sonicwall, WatchGuard, and Websense. Results will be linked to Untagle's related Web page.
