cen: Web Filtering

Web Filtering

CEN provides centralized filtering services to all members. This service is included as part of our base ISP service offering for public K-12 members and libraries that use CEN as their ISP.  The filtering platform is a CIPA compliant system which can be used to keep your organization in compliance with Erate requirements. CEN has contracted with iboss security to provide a cloud solution hosted within multiple CENís data centers.  Members have the ability to log into a portal dedicated to their organization to manage filtering policies.  Members also have the ability to purchase their own filter appliance, minus the cost of licensing which is covered by CEN currently through August 2018.  Leveraging an  internal district appliance allows for integration with the members domain server and more granular control over individual users.
