SmoothWall has announced the launch of the Mobile Guardian software filtering client.

Designed to prevent remote users from accessing inappropriate and malicious web content, the new software incorporates SmoothWall's Dynamic Content Analysis technology that uses intelligent algorithms to precisely recognise and classify all undesirable web content in real time.

SmoothWall product manager Tom Newton, said: “With mounting concerns about productivity, security and compliance, employers can no longer afford to let the activities of remote workers go unchecked.

“Web filtering and acceptable use policies should be consistently applied to all users – particularly remote ones, since they often represent a greater threat than staff working within the safety of the secure company network.”
