The technical team of Entensys has adapted UserGate Web Filter for micro-sized platforms. As part of the project, a content filtering solution was installed on an Odroid U2 device. A less powerful device based on Raspberry Pi had been presented earlier.
The key advantage of integrating products into micro platforms is their compact size combined with decent performance. Odroid U2 supports connections as fast as 14 Mbps that make it possible to build an Internet traffic processing system based on UserGate Web Filter in a local network comprised of up to 100 workstations.
Micro platforms do not require substantial space for installation. The silent work of compact appliances produces a favorable effect on the company’s ergonomics. The price of one micro platform is around $100*, which makes them affordable for a broad range of users, including educational institutions and small-budget organizations.
