SmoothWall Shows off the New Member of the Family.
Smoothwall brought to BETT 2010 for its official release the SWG-1200 series of its “Guardian” web filtering family appliances.
The SWG-1200 is available for education customers that need a higher performance than the existing SWG-700.
Accredited by BECTA the filtering technology that was one of the first to block flash based games already provides thousands of schools with state of the art filtering.
Smoothwall product manager Tom Newton says: “The addition of the SWG-1200 means we can offer dedicated and reliable hardware-based appliance to more sizeable schools with much more complex network needs.”

I would like to point out that the Equiinet Cachepilot with Guardian filtering already allows you to block particular applets/flash embeded from within pages, as well as forcing safesearch on all searchengines and allowing access to utube whilst blocking the comments.
I found one thing the the smooth-wall did better which was it's reporting.

In case you refer to flash filtering - indeed we have been able to block all or no flash by filetype, or specific files by URL for a long time.
The difference is that we now block the flash by _content_ - if it looks like an online game, we will stop it by reading the flash file itself and determining this, regardless of where it came from or what it is called. This will work for games which we have never seen before.
