FamProtector is an advanced content filtering solution that protects users against objectionable and offensive material on the Internet.
A Server-based solution
This solution is primarily intended for entities like corporates, educational institutes, and ISPs.
The FamProtector solution is installed on a server in a network and filtering is imposed on all the computers connected to the network. So, you can leverage the filtering capabilities to all the computers connected to the network without having to install individually. Hence, all website requests from any computer on your network are filtered.
FamProtector provides a user friendly interface referred as FamProtector Management Console(NPMC). This acts as an administrative console used to configure, control, monitor, manage and track the Web page URLs and keywords that are graded under various lists in a single interface.
Provider Independent Client Solution
FamProtector offers a Client solution to protect home users from offensive content on the Internet. You can continue with your existing Internet Service Provider and leverage the offerings of the FamProtector.
The client solution is independent of any browser and blocks the Web pages containing unacceptable content. Client solution is similar to a plug-in and is installed on the client’s machine. It in turn contacts a remote FamProtector server for filtering instructions.
Once the plug-in is installed, every Web request from your computer will first pass through the plug-in. The plug-in then checks with the FamProtector server, if the Web page you have requested is objectionable. If the FamProtector server declares that the Web page contains objectionable material, the plug-in will block your request; else it will forward your request to your ISP and the Web page will be displayed.
All the web filtering requests are answered quickly and the latency time is negligible. This is because the FamProtector Server sends only the block/allow signal to the client solution and the website content is retrieved from your local ISP.
Also, the Parental Control feature for defining personalized lists and time schedules, helps you customize the internet activities of your family members.
