Industry-leading web, content and application filtering

Kerio Control Web Filter is a security service that allows administrators to allow, deny or limit the applications, websites and Internet services users can access. This powerful filter:

  • Protects users and infrastructure by preventing visits to known malicious sites or those that engage in phishing attacks or identify theft.
  • Blocks objectionable sites to ensure compliance and shield you from liability.
  • Increases productivity by limiting access by application or site content category to a specific time of day, selected users, and specific user locations.

With Kerio Control Web Filter, you can block/allow applications or sites by application or site content category rather than specific application or URL. Kerio Control Web Filter continually updates its list of thousands of applications and more than 6 billion web pages, placing them into 141+ categories — so you don’t need to continually track changing or new applications or sites.

The Kerio Control Web Filter is included in the Kerio Control hardware appliance and is also available as an add-on when Kerio Control is deployed as a software or virtual appliance.
