How it Works

Web Safety ICAP web filter works very simple.

  1. User tries to navigate to a given web page by typing web site address in the browser address bar.
  2. Browser sends a request to Squid proxy server installed in your network, asking it to get the requested page on its behalf.
  3. Squid proxy connects to the remote site, downloads a page and sends its contents to Web Safety ICAP web filter.
  4. Web Safety checks the inner contents of the page and blocks the access or allows it.
