Listed in the 2007 Deloitte Technology UK Fast 50, EMEA Fast 500, and short listed in the Red Herring 100 Europe 2008 awards, Bloxx offers third-generation web filtering technology based on the company’s patented Tru-View Technology. The company has seen considerable increase in customer demand for its web filtering appliances over the past year and is now believed to be ranked the number one fastest growing web filtering company globally.
The continued success of Bloxx has been boosted by the launch last year of its revolutionary Tru-View Technology. This combines the benefits of conventional methods of Internet filtering, such as URL databases and keyword scanning, with new intelligent identification and analysis technologies to instantly classify web pages in real time. With the ongoing dramatic growth of the Internet and the increasingly dynamic nature of web content, first and second generation web filters no longer provide adequate protection.
Bloxx’s plans for international expansion are well underway; having recently opened an office in Australia and with a US launch imminent. In addition, Bloxx has been actively seeking resellers to support this global expansion.
The company boasts an impressive customer base of over one million users, from large corporations to educational institutions, including JCB and The Money Shop. The demand for web filtering is ever increasing, fuelled by growing concerns over staff and student productivity levels, network security-related issues and the legal implications surrounding inappropriate Internet use.
“Organisations have now realised that second generation web filters which rely on URL lists and keywords are no longer capable of efficiently or effectively managing access to today’s constantly changing web,” comments Bloxx Managing Director, Eamonn Doyle. “This realisation has spurred the recent success of Bloxx, in both sales and company expansion. It mirrors our ambitious nature and dedication to providing the most reliable and efficient web filter on the market.”
About Bloxx Tru-View Technology
Bloxx Tru-View Technology uses internationally patent pending technology to analyse and block web sites quicker and more accurately than other web filters, which use manual URL classification and keyword scoring alone.
Using intelligent identification and analysis, Tru-View Technology provides instant classification of web content as soon as it is accessed, even if the content has not been seen by anyone before.
Bloxx Tru-View Technology helps organisations proactively manage users’ access to web content which might lower productivity, expose the organisation to risk and liability or pose a network security threat.
An estimated 1 million + users already benefit from enhanced security and performance with low administration and no cost per user charges. Additional protection is provided via anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-phishing functionality.
