With internet access, the level of threats seem to be increasing both in number and severity. The web filtering feature in Hexnode MDM helps to block malicious sites and restrict devices to a few useful and harmless sites. Thus by defining some virtual boundaries, the corporate devices can be secured even from the internet.
The unsafe or inappropriate websites can be blacklisted so that these sites becomes unavailable to the user. Only supervised iOS devices and Samsung SAFE devices support this feature. In iOS websites can be blacklisted based on the content of the site too.
Whitelisting provides a stricter website restriction than blacklisting. In this case, only the whitelisted websites would be available to the user. Here again, iOS devices need to be supervised and the Samsung devices should support KNOX version 5.6 or above.
