Bloxx Launches New Web Filtering Solution

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor

Bloxx, a provider of Web and email content filtering and security for medium and large organizations in both the business and public sectors, has announced the availability of Microsoft (News - Alert) Hyper-V virtual appliance versions of its Web filter and secure web gateway. With this release, the company hopes to help organizations move their security infrastructures to Microsoft virtual environments.

 “These new virtualized products, built on Bloxx’s appliance-based Web filtering and security foundation, deliver all the ease-of-deployment and upgrade benefits offered by virtualization,” said Charles Sweeney, CEO of Bloxx.

The company was in news last year for offering similar virtual appliance versions of its Bloxx Web Filter and Bloxx Secure Web Gateway (News - Alert) for VMWare in North America.

The Hyper-V Bloxx virtual appliances will offer a variety of Web filtering and security features, including real-time content filtering and classification of Web pages using a next-generation dynamic filter, real-time Web content analysis, enterprise-grade Sophos anti-malware protection, SSL Filtering (to cut down the risks of growing HTTPs traffic) and gateway level security to protect both networks and users.

 “We now offer our next-generation Web content filtering and security, with real-time content analysis and categorization, either as a hardware appliance or a virtual appliance for both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere,” Sweeney added.

To be offered in a range of configurations, the appliances have the ability to support networks from 100 up to 10,000 connected devices.  Moreover, multiple Bloxx virtual appliances can be clustered and load-balanced for larger deployments, the company explained.

The Bloxx Web Filter and Bloxx Secure Web Gateway virtual appliances for Microsoft Hyper-V will be available for purchase some time in early 2014.
