WALNUT, Calif., November 24, 2017 (Newswire.com) – The renowned Mobile Device Management solution, Hexnode MDM is one of the most sought-after device security tools in the Enterprise. Hexnode provides protection against the ultimate threat there is for devices — the internet. The web filtering feature is supported by supervised iOS devices and Samsung SAFE supported devices.

“Device security is literally incomplete without website filtering. The main source of threats is the internet and we can never be too secure. The web filtering feature is the best option available for enterprises in the field of internet security,” said Manu Yesudas, the senior Product Developer at Mitsogo Inc.

Web filtering basically allows the enterprise to blacklist or whitelist website URLs. Blacklisting means specifying the web URLs which is to be restricted from access and Whitelisting means specifying the web URLs which is supposed to be accessed from the device. Website whitelisting is more restrictive because the user will be able to access only those websites that are whitelisted. All supervised iOS devices support the website blacklisting and whitelisting feature but in Android, only those Samsung devices with Knox version 5.6 or above, will be able to execute the website whitelisting feature. In addition, iOS offers a web content filter which filters websites based on the content.

Blocking websites in the company network is very easy to bypass. But, here the device itself is stripped from access to the websites despite the networks they use. Web filtering finds its application mainly in the education sector. For the school-deployed devices, this is an unavoidable feature. SMBs, enterprises, governments, etc. seek this feature in their Mobile Device Management solution for security and also for improving productivity.

About the company: Mitsogo Inc. is a trusted provider of Enterprise Mobility Solution under the brand Hexnode.

Hexnode MDM has found its way to all kinds of business sectors such as education, health care, transportation and even in high-security government fields all over the world. The clutter-less UI and simplified workflow are what make the solution more efficient and preferable.
