High Security

With conventional proxy-based filtering, a proxy is put into your browser specifying the IP address of a certain computer through which you must access the Internet. To bypass this filtering, any user on your computer can simply go into the browser's setup and change the IP address for the proxy. In addition, because the software with the list of prohibited sites is installed on your computer, it is up to you to keep your filtering up to date by downloading frequent updates. This is a formidable problem when about 1000 new offensive sites are added to the Internet daily.

With JNet, all filtering is done on our own server. There is no software for you to install on your computer and no vulnerable proxy in your browser. And JNet updates its filters daily, so you don't have to worry about new sites slipping past your filter. This method is not only safer, but also more convenient. You can sign up and be online in a few minutes, because there is nothing for you to install, download, or update. JNet provides a choice of two filtering methods. The most secure method uses a white list, or list of permitted sites, so a parent can control exactly which sites a child may visit. The other filtering method allows access to any site that isn't blocked. JNet uses a variety of resources to create a comprehensive list of sites to block, including sophisticated computer searches and manual site inspections. JNet's filtering is precise and designed to avoid filtering out legitimate sites.


High Speed

Conventional proxy-based filtering routes traffic through a bottleneck that can slow performance significantly: the single computer through which you must access the Internet can be overwhelmed by heavy traffic. With JNet, traffic is fast because each computer connects directly to the Internet.

You simply dial in to JNet as your Internet service provider and supply a user name and password. As you use the Internet, JNet then monitors the Internet addresses you request. Only when you request a site that is prohibited does JNet interfere, jumping in and blocking access to that site.



At JNet, we recognize that different people within the same family may have different needs for access and filtering, so we provide five standard filtering profiles for you to choose from, or you can ask us to create a custom profile to suit your needs. Each account can accommodate up to five e-mail accounts and four filtering profiles. JNet lets you choose precisely which types of content to block in each profile.

For example, you can block chat sites, shopping sites, or gaming sites. And unlike proxy-based filtering, JNet can selectively filter freeware, shareware, video, and audio and block only the objectionable ones, rather than blocking all or none. Of course, in keeping with our values and philosophy, there are certain pornographic sites to which we do not allow access under any profile.
