When business, educational, public or governmental institutions set up a network for users to use to browse the Internet, it's common to administer Internet restrictions through the use of filtering software. The SonicWALL filter is a security tool used by network administrators to keep networks shielded from viruses, spyware or malware threats, and to filter websites that host inappropriate or distracting material. Although proficient, the SonicWALL filter may sometimes restrict valuable Web content. If you're confronted with this pesky restriction, a proxy site will help you get around a SonicWALL filter.
