2. How does NetOptima Work?

NetOptima statistically analyses the content to determine the probability of given content being pornography. This technology, in NetOptima, clearly segregates between pornographic content and non-pornographic content. While pornographic websites are definitely blocked, the users can still view educational and news sites. NetOptima neither stores domain names nor blocks websites based only on keywords. NetOptima uses intelligent algorithms to calculate the probability of a web page being pornographic. NetOptima uses patented (pending) algorithms to statistically identify the document based on various characteristics of the page like number of links, number of external links, number of images, critical area rating, document rating, pattern matching probabilities etc., in addition to keyword distribution, frequency & multiword patterns.

NetOptima uses the intelligent technique of pattern matching to analyze the web content. The research team at Drishti created a database of patterns to determine the nature of the content.

All the data passing through NetOptima is compared to these patterns to unearth similar patterns. The number of similar patterns found contributes to the probability of the web page being pornographic.

This intelligent technique correctly identifies pornographic and non-pornographic content.

3. There are so many content filters available in the market. Why another filter?

Yes, there are numerous filters available in the market. These filters are either keyword based, URL based or a combination of both. Both these filters have been found to be ineffective in correctly blocking pornographic websites and allowing non-pornographic websites. Some of these filters are also not efficient. They consume tremendous processing power slowing down the user's machine or forcing him to buy costly hardware.

NetOptima addresses both these shortcomings. The intelligent algorithms used in NetOptima effectively ensure that pornographic websites are blocked and other websites are allowed. NetOptima uses highly efficient algorithms, which does not force the user to invest on costly hardware.
