Netsweeper (2015) does not do a good job of filtering Windows 10 (Edge Browser) or windows 8. HTTPS internet could not be filtered at all so many google links and services were blocked resulting in users needing to find alternatives (Bing search, here maps etc)
A new filter ,Security Appliance was tested and was put into service since July 2016.This Filter was built over the past 10 years by a Christian organization in USA. This filter can filter google searches and etc,using a unique "scoring" system by which all web searches and sites are graded mathematically to arrive at a block/allow decision. This method has proven to work very well in separating entertainment and pop culture from necessary web usage.
Example: the word "horse" may score 700 for "racing",and be blocked
the word "fence" may score 2000 for "agriculture" and be allowed
The phrase "horse fence" might then score 1300 for agriculture, and be allowed.
Moral: keep typing so filter knows what you are looking for.
