With operating businesses in the UK and USA, Smoothwall has engineered a range of security solutions to meet the needs of business, education, health, and government worldwide.
Our commercial range includes web security products that incorporate our dynamic content filtering and firewall technology. And, we believe the best anti-malware and anti-spam from our globally recognized technology partners. We are fully represented with operations in the US and a Partner Network that spans the globe.
Smoothwall was the first security vendor to develop intelligent content-based web page analysis, a now-essential technology that has rendered URL-blocklist based filters all but obsolete in the context of today’s dynamic web. The Company’s award winning web filter uses this real-time intelligent technology to protect millions of users worldwide, solving the challenge of protecting end users and networks from undesirable content, while still allowing open access to legitimate on-line resources.
Our solutions are uniquely versatile and can be deployed as hardware, software or virtual appliances to suit differing networks and user environments. The Company also offers a remote web filtering client (Mobile Guardian) designed to safeguard browsing for laptop users.
We continue to recognize our Open Source heritage by funding and supporting the Smoothwall GPL project and progressively releasing commercially developed features back into GPL versions - an open source firewall, Smoothwall Express and the award-winning web content filter DansGuardian.
