Web Content Filtering License Subscription

Internet access has become critical to sustaining an enterprise’s daily business activities. However, employees might access harmful, inappropriate, and dangerous websites, which cause productivity downgrade, resource waste, cyber risk exposure, and regulation compliance issues. With the D-Link NetDefend Web Content Filtering (WCF) service, enterprises could apply more granular control on web surfing according to its own policy. A number of legislated regulations contain content filtering requirements that can be met using D-Link NetDefend WCF. For example, the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requires all schools and libraries that receive E-Rate funding to adopt an Internet safety policy and employ protection that block or filter visual depictions deemed obscene, pornographic, or harmful to minors.

Please note that this license works only with DFL-870 and cannot be activated on any other model. Please make sure you are buying the correct license for your model.

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.

Performance Optimized

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

The WCF capabilities of D-Link UTM firewalls can strip potential malicious objects, such as Java applets, JavaScripts / VBScripts, ActiveX objects and cookies, all of which are popular methods for hacker attacks.

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

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.
