Offline filtering preferred way of Web censorship

For countries looking to censor the Web, offline URL filtering appear to be the weapon of choice as more Internet service providers (ISPs) turn to it to comply with government regulations in a cost-effective manner.According to Eric Chan, regional technical manager of Fortinet Southeast Asia and Hong Kong, offline URL filtering provides Web content filtering capabilities and manageability at “only a fraction of the price” of a full-fledged URL filtering product. It is also more effective than other filtering techniques via DNS (domain name system) or Internet Protocol (IP), he noted in his e-mail.
