Internet solutions company iboss Cybersecurity offers YouTube users and businesses security software and programs to filter unsuitable material. Iboss offers management tools to help businesses and schools regulate access to YouTube. For home users, iboss offers routers that act as proxy servers to screen out sexual or obscene content.
Established in 2003, iboss Cybersecurity offers IT managers and parents solutions for establishing content filters for YouTube and other Internet content. Its enterprise solutions suite enables business and schools to establish programming rules for viewing YouTube content or to screen it out entirely. Tools for building filters include lists of keywords and metadata searches as well as lists of YouTube posts and users. Although many businesses had already established rules and filters regulating YouTube content, when YouTube began using the same secure socket layer encryption as Google.com, unrestricted YouTube content bypassed these security measures.
To improve parental controls at home, iboss also offers special routers combined with a wireless firewall that filter content based on rules that parents and guardians set. A single router can filter YouTube content for all of the computers in the home as well as monitor all Internet activities and report on the amount of time spent online.
