Enterprise filtering products are typically very customizable and allow the enterprise to choose what types of sites are allowed and what types of sites are blocked. Just using the same product still does not mean you would have the same filtering in place. Additionally, enterprise applications are not priced for the home user.jeffphil wrote:True, but the church does use a product or system employed in its own filtering for Family History Centers and what not. Is there any way to use this same service or a very close match to it at home? I realize we don't have the Cisco Pix firewall installed at home, but I'm mostly referring to just the same data source as far as which sites should be blocked.
No filter is perfect. They either block sites that shouldn't be blocked or they allow sites which you may not want allowed. Filtering products are usually only capable of blocking known bad sites. Unless they are updated very often and have a good mechanism for harvesting and analyzing new sites in a timely manner, they are going to have gaps in their coverage.
