Country-wide Filtering and Regulatory Compliance

Protect citizens from harmful online content and ensure regulatory compliance within country borders

The Need for Country-Wide Filtering Solutions

Governments are struggling to control internet content within their country. 

 The three main issues are:

  • Blocking terrorist and extremist content from spreading online
  • Lost revenue from illegal online commerce activities
  • Minimizing the risks to public safety from cyber-attacks

From online media and music streaming, to taxation on rideshare providers and hotel services, government tax authorities struggle to regulate e-commerce activities within their boundaries.

Governments now face increased national and global pressure to combat the online publishing of cyberbullying, extreme shooting videos, and fake news that often spreads unchecked across social media and other platforms.

Cyber threats, cybercrime, hacktivism, the proliferation of illicit content and attacks on critical infrastructure and intellectual property are on the rise. Government regulatory compliance aimed at protecting the general populace most often involves service providers to analyze packet captures, log web usage, detect and prevent against advanced threats, deny harmful web content, and safeguard critical communication infrastructures.

Our tactical cyber intelligence approach drives agencies and communication service providers towards a cybersecurity posture that is predictive, not just reactive while providing context and relevance to large amounts of data.
