Content filtering on the go!
- Saves bandwidth by not using your Internet access when devices are off campus
- Has flat, per device pricing, enabling you to plan your budget
- Is easy to deploy
- Is compatible with devices that support global proxies
To deploy ENA WebSafe Mobile on your devices, your MDM or device configuration system should
- Configure proxy credentials on the devices
- Optionally provision a PAC (Proxy Auto Config) file on devices
- A PAC file allows devices to bypass sites that are not “proxy friendly”
- Can also keep local traffic on-net so it doesn’t have to proxy out to be filtered
