Market Synopsis

Web filtering is commonly referred to content control software which is designed to restrict certain URLs or websites by preventing the browser from loading pages. In general, web filters can operate in two different ways. Either they can block content based on the origin of the website or based on the harmful content it caries and blocks it accordingly. Web filters are developed to enhance the security, productivity, and flexibility of a network. Web filtering provides a layer of protection from malware and other online bugs. By blocking access to unknown/malware sites, organizations can be protected from straying into the path of malware and can avoid being deceived by scams such as phishing attacks. The ability of malware to access the web can be diminished which can prevent it from infecting the system further.

The stringent government regulations for web filtering and rising concerns related to bandwidth consumption management are driving the global web filtering market. The rise in demand for data security and data monitoring across government organizations are fuelling the market growth. However, high maintenance costs associated with web filtering software are hindering the market growth.
