Entensys Nano-sizes Content Filter to Fit on Raspberry Pi
Sep 17, 2013 (EWORLDWIRE via Comtex) --
The Raspberry Pi platform has been harnessed by the specialists at Entensys to assemble a test model of the UserGate Web Filter content filtering system. The successful experiment on the diminutive hardware is part of ongoing work to port Entensys software to ARM processors, which offer exciting opportunities for creating new compact, inexpensive devices.
Weighing in at just 94 grams, the test model easily fits in the palm of the hand. Minimal cost for the unit makes filtering solutions affordable to a wide range of users, at home, in schools and in non-profits, including those in developing countries experiencing rapid growth in Internet use. The UserGate Web Filter for ARM processors delivers even better performance than that of similarly priced, compact devices, including those featuring other platforms. The ability to port UserGate Web Filter to modest hardware showcases the software's high performance and ability to process enormous traffic flows on traditional server systems.
