vSpace Guardian compliments the company’s existing vSpace Pro 10 desktop virtualization solution
San Mateo, California – November 3, 2016 - Today NComputing launches vSpace Guardian, a category–based web filtering service. Using 70 pre-defined categories to selectively block over 140 million websites, vSpace Guardian allows educational organizations, small to medium sized businesses and individual families to manage, control and monitor their internet experience.
Users can quickly customize Internet access in their environment by selecting pre-defined web categories without blacklisting content individually. NComputing has partnered with Korea’s leading security company, Jiransoft to jointly develop the vSpace Guardian solution. Chi Young Oh, CEO of Jiransoft says, “We are extremely excited to partner with NComputing to provide a turn-key solution for their customers who are looking to enhance and secure their Internet experience at an affordable price.”
With seamless automatic updates, vSpace Guardian ensures that you are up-to-date. The predefined policy categories are constantly updated with new websites such as social media, gaming, adult content and other malicious sites.
Coming soon, vSpace Guardian will include web usage analysis, allowing administrators to gain insight into users’ web usage behavior with summary reporting; track most visited and blocked websites, fine tune web filtering policies to improve productivity and provide a safer environment.
Key Features of vSpace Guardian include:
- Category based control – Streamline user experience by selecting from 70 different predefined categories covering over 140 million websites, to control and restrict Internet access.
- Whitelists and blacklists – Customize your web filtering experience by ensuring what is on and off limits. vSpace Guardian has the ability to add URL’s that have yet been classified to allow accessibility to important websites and block unwanted ones.
- Customize Internet experience – Use a combination of 70 predefined categories to quickly define router policy. Block social media and other time wasting sites to improve employee productivity. Or, block adult, gaming and other inappropriate sites to provide a safer Internet environment for schools and families.
- Limit bandwidth use - Gain control over network bandwidth usage by restricting access to media downloading and streaming websites.
- Support for all kind of devices - Assign blocking provisions to the router for all connected devices, including tablets, smartphones, laptops/desktops and other NComputing thin client hardware solutions.
- Remote management from any browser- The easy-to-use, cloud-delivered management console enables the user to quickly setup, manage, and customize web filtering policies per router, giving the user more flexibility and control of their Internet usage.
According to Young Song, CEO of NComputing, “With vSpace Guardian, NComputing is expanding its portfolio of premium features, designed to offer a holistic solution to further enhance our customers’ desktop virtualization environment. vSpace Guardian compliments vSpace Pro 10 deployments by enabling an easy-to-setup and manage web filtering protection to safeguard users’ Internet access at an affordable price.”
