Many businesses would like to restrict what employees can access while using the
companies equipment. Some companies have problems with employees updating blogs,
using MySpace.com, viewing pornographic material or other things that are considered
inappropriate while at work. Content filters can restrict the ability for employees
to pursue these activities from company equipment. Modern content filters are very
effective at filtering out content that is not wanted while allowing everything else.
Many filters use what are called blacklists. A blacklist is a list of sites that
are known to fit in a particular category, such as violence, pornography, drugs,
gangs, chatting, etc. Using blacklists allows access to pharmaceutical and medical
sites, which may contain certain words that fit into a blocked category, to
while the real drug and pornographic sites are blocked.
