Internet Authentication

CyberHound goes that extra step with not only securing networking resources with advanced firewalling but it also operates at the user level with Internet Authentication. Internet Authentication ensures users who access the internet (via the CyberHound Appliance) are authenticated either at the IP or Mac level.

Internet Authentication integrates with our transparent proxy for a seamless internet access experience. Users who are not transparently authenticated are the forced to login via the CyberHound captive portal page by authenticating against a local or network directory service.

The CyberHound solution has proven to be innovative, reliable, scalable and easy to use. I have also really
appreciated dealing with an Australian company that really cares about its customers. CyberHound have
proven that when we really need help, that the support from the entire team, technical support, through to
the executives, all contribute to helping us – going above and beyond. We would have no hesitation in
recommending them to other schools.
