NG Firewall v14.2

Web security and content filtering enhancements include:

  • Flagging, blocking and alerting based on search terms for Google, YouTube, Yahoo, Bing, and Ask.
  • Enforcement of safe search for YouTube. YouTube searches can be logged, and usage can be locked down to show only content that meets the ‘safe search’ criteria.
