End-use Segmentation Analysis
On the basis of end-use, the web content filtering market is categorized into following segments:

  • Business Organizations
  • Schools and Institutions
  • Federal and Government Agencies
  • Others (Personal Laptops, Mobile Phones, etc.)

The following figure represents the contribution of different end-users to the global web content filtering market in 2014 and 2022.

Web Content Filtering Market 

A web content filter refers to a software program designed to control the content delivered over the internet through either web or e-mail, thereby offering access to only specific content on the internet. Growing corporate concerns over data privacy, employee productivity, and legal liabilities have collectively fueled adoption of web security solutions among business organizations. Their capability to offer network security by restricting access to virus prone or malicious content loaded websites have further ensured greater adoption of web content filtering solutions among enterprise users. As such, web content filtering solutions have become an integral component of business organizations. In 2014, business organization segment was the largest contributor to the web content filtering market, accounting for over 35% of the global market revenue. Although the segment is expected to remain the major end-use market, schools and institution segment is poised to witness maximum growth over the forecast period from 2015 to 2022. In order to confine students from getting access to non-curriculum related information and better manage the designated bandwidth consumption, schools and institutions across the globe are increasingly deploying web content filtering solutions on a wider scale.

Restricting complete access to a particular website may sometimes deprive students, employees, or other surfers from gaining the requisite information. For instance, a person surfing for the information on vaginal cancer may be restricted from accessing websites which includes words that are blacklisted by the network administrator. As such, to avoid such situations, different filtering techniques have been developed over the years. Based on filtering techniques, the global web content filtering market is segmented into following categories

  • URL Filtering
  • IP Filtering
  • DNS Filtering
  • Keyword Filtering
  • File Type Filtering
  • Others (Image Filtering, etc.)

The following figure represents the contribution of different filtering techniques to the global web content filtering market in 2014 and 2022.

Web Content Filtering Market

In 2014, URL filtering was the major web content filtering technique employed by business organizations and federal agencies, accounting for around one third of the global web content filtering market. With large amount of content being added every day to the World Wide Web, the resulting increase in the number of URLs is making list based filtering (URL Filtering) unsustainable. Over the forecast period, keyword and file type filtering are expected to witness healthy adoption. The growth in file type filtering technique can be attributed to the growing demand from business organizations, schools, and federal agencies. Owing to technical complexities involved and less security offered, Internet Protocol (IP) filtering and DNS (Domain Name System) filtering techniques are expected to exhibit slower growth over the forecast period 2015 – 2022.

On the basis of geography, the global web content filtering market is segmented into following regions and countries.

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Rest of North America
  • Europe
    • EU7
    • CIS
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific

The anticipated growth in the region is expected to be spurred by the expansion of enterprise networking, improved investments for developing sophisticated IT infrastructure, and increasing adoption of web based technologies. India and China are collectively expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market growth during the forecast period 2015 – 2022.

Hismation: Web Content Filtering

A web content filter is a software program that screens or restricts access to specific websites or dedicated sections of websites that are deemed offensive, inappropriate.

They are also by deployed by personal computer or mobile device owners, especially parents to restrict their children from getting access to the unwanted and objectionable content on the Internet.

Web Content Filtering Market

The contracting end-user (business organizations, federal agencies, schools and institution, individual) constructs a database of keywords, IPs, and URLs, which if requested by any person denies the access to the same. End-users also create a set of rules to impose its Internet Access Policy (IAP) and deploy web content filtering solutions between the user browser and outside world.

When user requests a particular website, the web content filter installed retrieves the classification of the requested website from the constructed database. It also compares it with the set of rules created in the Internet Access Policy (IAP). These set of rules decide whether to allow or confine access to the requested website. If the keywords, IP, or URL requested matches with any from the set of blocked websites, an acknowledgement of access denial is sent back to the user. On the other hand, if set of rules in the Internet Access Policy (IAP) allows request, the connection is established and the address of the website requested is retrieved from the web server. The user gains access to the requested website and the activity is recorded in the activity log. Such reporting capabilities enable business organizations to keep track of the Internet traffic and individuals that are most active on the network.

Web content filters were first installed in libraries (late 1990s) in compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) in the U.S. The libraries deploying web content filters soon realized benefits, enabling them to address some of the major challenges. Web content filters allowed libraries to provide access to only dedicated websites, thereby preventing children and readers from bumping into unwanted websites and advertisements. Web content filtering solutions were initially considered as only an add-on or complimentary security solutions. However, within few years of introduction, these solutions have become an integral component of businesses and organizations realizing web consumption policies.

With the advent of technology, web filtering solutions have advanced to become more flexible and scalable solutions capable of addressing sophisticated security issues of the networked business world.  Today, web content filters provide finer grained classification and more secured architecture. In addition, web content filters have become superior at evaluating the content and offer easy installation. Security solution providers across the globe are focusing on developing multi-featured solutions that besides web content filtering function can also function as firewalls, intrusion prevention solutions, and antivirus solutions among others. In addition, functionalities including logging, auditing, proxy, and data loss protection are slowly finding their way into web-security solutions.
