Currently BrightCloud offers BrightCloud Web Filtering Services for a variety of OEM implementations. However, other services are under development.
Adding the features and functionality offered by BrightCloud to an OEM solution not only can add significant value to an OEM's solution without the OEM having to either build a new technology and core competency or make a large investment in integration development. The BrightCloud MSP Services are designed to provide OEMs with:
The MSP based, OEM branded business model utilized by BrightCloud is a clear improvement on alternative options.
Because the MSP technology model scales across all types of devices, from smallest to largest, remote offices to enterprise data centers, the BrightCloud Services are flexible enough to address virtually any class of customer need. To successfully implement web filtering via an MSP model, edge security appliances and applications, as well as solutions targeting PCs roaming outside of the corporate firewall, are prime candidates for integration.
The OEM has the freedom to integrate not only the BrightCloud technology in the manner that makes the most sense for them, but to implement pricing in a way that works as well. Contact a BrightCloud representative for further information.
Using the MSP model, adding the features and functionality offered by BrightCloud to an OEM solution has significant benefits, such as:
Integrating the BrightCloud Services can be accomplished across a quick and lightweight development cycles, where typical development times range from one to four developer/QA months combined, depending on the complexity of the policy engine, reporting infrastructure, and management console with which the services are integrated. Reference platforms are available as development guides, as are performance metrics and testing services.
No. OEMs can request specific URL database categories as appropriate for their product lines and customers.
Latency for an MSP model is subject to a variety of factors, including bandwidth, congestion, and hardware resources. However, web pages requested by a browser typically return information from ten (or up to twenty or more, in the case of the most popular web sites) different URIs. The BrightCloud request would add only a single additional request, and a lightweight request at that. The ultimate result is that the end user will likely have only an additional 5-10% delay in the fulfilling of their request, which is unnoticeable in virtually every case.
