What is Web Filtering?

Web filtering software is sometimes also called content-control software. It allows network administrators to specify what types of web content can and cannot be accessed on their network. This type of program is often implemented by companies to keep employees from spending time on non-work-related pursuits. It is also required by the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) on networks run by schools and libraries to keep children from accessing pornographic materials.
