TheJnet is the only Internet service provider in the nation
that offers proxy-free, server-based filtering in combination
with customized levels of access. Our unique technology
allows us to offer high-speed, high-security Internet access
that is flexible enough to meet diverse needs. TheJnet's
Dial-Up for Business service includes the following features:
With conventional proxy-based filtering, a proxy is put
into each computer's browser specifying the IP address
of a certain computer through which all your other computers
must access the Internet. To bypass this filtering, any
user on your computer can simply go into the browser's
setup and change the IP address for the proxy. In addition,
because the software with the list of prohibited sites
is installed on your computer, it is up to you to keep
your filtering up to date by downloading frequent updates.
This is a formidable problem when about 1000 new offensive
sites are added to the Internet daily.
With TheJnet, all filtering is done on our own server.
There is no software for you to install on your computer
and no vulnerable proxy in your browser. And TheJnet updates
its filters daily, so you don't have to worry about new
sites slipping past your filter. This method is not only
safer, but also more convenient. You can sign up and be
online in a few minutes, because there is no filtering
software for you to install, download, or update.
TheJnet provides a choice of two filtering methods. The
most secure method uses a white list, or list of permitted
sites. This can be useful in some business situations,
for example to allow a certain workstation to access only
The other filtering method allows access to any site
that isn't blocked. TheJnet uses a variety of resources
to create a comprehensive list of sites to block, including
sophisticated computer searches and manual site inspections.
TheJnet's filtering is precise and designed to avoid filtering
out legitimate sites.
Conventional proxy-based filtering routes traffic through
a bottleneck that can slow performance significantly:
the single computer through which you must access the
Internet can be overwhelmed by heavy traffic.
With TheJnet, traffic is fast because each computer connects
directly to the Internet. You simply dial in to TheJnet
as your Internet service provider and supply a user name
and password. As you use the Internet, TheJnet then monitors
the Internet addresses you request. Only when you request
a site that is prohibited does TheJnet interfere, jumping
in and blocking access to that site.
At TheJnet, we recognize that different people within
the same business may have different needs for access
and filtering, so we provide five standard filtering profiles
for you to choose from, or you can ask us to create a
custom profile to suit your needs. Each account can accommodate
up to five users, each with its own e-mail, password,
and filtering profile.
TheJnet lets you choose precisely which types of content
to block in each profile. For example, you can block chat
sites, shopping sites, or gaming sites. And unlike proxy-based
filtering, TheJnet can selectively filter freeware, shareware,
video, and audio and block only the objectionable ones,
rather than blocking all or none. Of course, in keeping
with our values and philosophy, there are certain pornographic
sites to which we do not allow access under any profile.
