A Laptop Filter for Libraries
For your library's laptops—including Windows 32- and 64-bit XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X using Version 10.5 or later on Intel and PPC—this is how it works. Your Acceptable Use Policy is enforced by Anywhere Filter™, the laptop filter included with Patronus for any users either working on your network or remotely. When off-network, any Internet browser requests from a laptop are communicated from BASCOM's Anywhere Filter to Patronus. Patronus then analyzes the requested URL to see if it is in the allowed content database. If it isn't, it sends a blocked and redirect message to the user.
Remote Library Filter Management Simplifies Network Requirements
Therefore, regardless of what network a staff member is using, your library's Internet filtering settings are implemented without the need for a VPN. Now, whenever staff is using a library-owned laptop, the Internet is secured with a remote filter that enforces your library's settings.
