Bloxx is a provider of third-generation Web filtering solutions that uses Tru-View Technology; a method of Web content filtering that uses analytical intelligence to take content identification up to the next level. Based on each organization’s usage rules and policy, its appliance-based Tru-View Technology solution performs real-time contextual analysis of each requested Web page and classifies access requests into pre-defined categories. The solution then makes a rules-based decision on whether to grant or deny access to the requested Web page, thus enabling organizations to proactively manage users’ access to Web content.
