MNTech Makes Strategic Investment in BluePrint Data India and Acquires Its "WebHawk Mini" Low Cost Wireless Access Point with Internet Filtering and Security
BluePrint Data India (an independent entity from BluePrint Data) has partnered with MNTech to expand the sales efforts for the white label, brandable BluePrint Data “WebHawk Mini,” a small form, low cost wireless access point with Internet Filtering and security.
The WebHawk Mini platform includes cloud access security (CAS), local area network segmentation security (LAN-SS), and web security and internet filtering. This new product and service will bolster new offerings for MNTech. Additionally, the collaboration will enhance the BluePrint Data intelligent cloud URL categorization engine by accelerating its URL / website access pattern capabilities for more real-time, intelligent decision-making
The BluePrint Data Cloud URL Categorization Engine provides URL / website lookups for the WebHawk Mini content filtering via the Amazon Elastic Computer Cloud (Amazon EC2) platform, which offers very high efficiency, extremely low latency, excellent reliability, on-demand scalability, international regions and availability zones, edge network services, and 99.95% uptime guarantee.
The BluePrint Data WebHawk Mini device is designed to, amongst other things, create Wi-Fi hot spots and public access Wi-Fi networks as well segment its uses so network traffic passing through the WebHawk Mini is “physically” separated from other local area network traffic. The WebHawk Mini device is also part of BluePrint Data USA’s work to port its technology to Intel ARM-based platforms for use in low-power, less expensive devices.
The unit’s minimal cost and ease of use makes the availability of Wi-Fi access with filtering solutions available to a wide range of user categories, including home users, schools and non-profits, including those in developing countries with rapidly growing internet use. The device is compliant with several educational standards, including the United States Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA).
Installing and using the WebHawk Mini is as simple as plugging the ethernet cable into a working outlet in a wall, switch/hub, or router and plugging in the power. Once turned on, a new wireless Wi-Fi access point will show up on computers in range. The administrator of the WebHawk Mini then opens a web browser and selects which categories of website content to block or allow, which websites to whitelist or blacklist, view reports of sites accessed and denied, set the message and branding for the block page, etc. Users that connect to the new wireless Wi-Fi access point are now protected from porn, gambling, and other categories of websites.
BluePrint Data (and by extension BluePrint Data India) specializes in providing high quality website / URL filtering, which makes them the most trusted website content authority in the world. In fact, other Internet Filtering companies contract with BluePrint Data to complete website / URL content reviews to improve their filter databases or when their automated technology can’t determine a website or URLs content.
