eSoft's SiteFilter offering, with over 100 million URLs in 53 categories and growing daily, together with eSoft's unique ability to team a high- performance local database with rapid "cloud-based" look-up and real-time classification, provides hardware and software vendors and service providers with a cost-effective way to improve and extend their existing content filtering and security technologies.
