Global Index Servers
Global index servers maintain databases of millions of URLs and collect real-time website information about the latest sites in order to keep the data as current as possible. Multiple servers worldwide enhance performance and maximize service availability wherever a NetDefend firewall is installed.
D-Link implements multiple index servers to enhance performance capacity and maximize service availability. Categories of recently visited websites are cached locally in each UTM firewall to maximize performance for subsequent requests.
Tight Integration with other D-Link Security Gateway Subsystems
D-Link allows you to define highly-granular policies for allowing or disallowing where and when access to certain types of websites is permitted, and different policies can be applied to any combination of users, interfaces, and IP networks.
Static White and Black Lists
Define websites that will be explicitly allowed or blocked, independent of their classification. There are 32 default classification groups in NetDefend UTM firewalls to allow network administrators to control Internet usage.
Active Content Handling
Cost-Effective Web Content Filtering
D-Link’s WCF service is priced per firewall instead of per user, so an enterprise-level organization does not need to contemplate a large TCO for licensing in order to manage the surfing privileges of all employees. One subscription can provide web surfing control for an entire organization.
My D-Link portal provides a registration and management platform for all D-Link customers. D-Link customers need to register their firewall to receive WCF update services from the NetDefend Center’s My D-Link. The current status of all registered products will be presented, including Model Names, MAC addresses, Serial Numbers, Registration dates, and WCF Service Expiration dates. Customers can easily maintain all firewalls registered under My D-Link.
