BLOXX, the leading provider of enterprise-class web filtering appliance solutions, announced today the immediate availability of an upgrade for its entire BLOXX web filtering product line.
The BLOXX Family is an integrated hardware and software product line that provides businesses with an enterprise-class web, spyware & virus protection that is easy to use and affordable. BLOXX is delivering automatic firmware updates to all existing customers within existing maintenance arrangements. V3.1.1 enhances security and performance as well as provides additional web filtering features.
We recognise that spyware & virus techniques are constantly evolving and we are committed to making sure our product line is continuously up-to-date on the latest defence methods said Eamonn Doyle, MD of BLOXX. With this new release, we are able to seamlessly integrate anti-spyware & virus blocking techniques into our appliances without disrupting our customers Internet service.
These changes are in addition to recently made available enhancements to its proprietary BLOXX web scanning system, which makes it possible for all BLOXX appliances to actually block inappropriate web sites reaching user desktops even though the site has never actually been previously identified. This improvement was deployed automatically to current BLOXX customers at no additional charge and presents the single greatest advancement in web filtering according to Doyle. For the first time we can protect users - but especially kids at school for example - from the deluge of new and re-named offensive sites that are launched every week. The reliance of a web address database used by most of our competitors is out of date, ineffective, over rated and over priced Doyle said.
