Cisco Content Engine for Content Filtering

Hi All,

I am looking for a low end solution for Content Filtering and would like to use Cisco Content Engine.

1. The documentation said that Websense, Secure Computing SmartFilter (does not require separate SmartFilter) & N2H2 support is there on the CE. I used configurator on CE 510, but it did not give me option for any of those. I would appreciate any input in this regard.

2. Also, I assume that once I get a Content Engine, I don't need to use Microsoft Proxy any more, please confirm.

Re: Cisco Content Engine for Content Filtering

You would have to Install the Smartfilter software on the Content engine that would work with the ACNS software running on the CE. SmartFilter software operates inside your network to control user access to external Internet resources and allows you to restrict access to World Wide Web pages, newsgroups, and FTP sites.

For more details refer:

The Content Engine does the job of storing content locally and serving it to the users, so you would not need to use the Microsoft Proxy.
