Acidspew writes “The Australian Government’s plan to filter the Internet has caused furore and has been with vehement objection. Many people have put their opinions forward regarding this matter but this time around, M86 Security — the vendor that provided many ISPs equipment during the initial filter trials — has finally weighed in on the discussion. Six of the nine ISP participants in the URL-based Internet filter trial last year used M86′s R3000 filtering kit. According to ARN: ‘Internet filtering won’t prevent people deliberately looking for inappropriate material from accessing blocked content, according to security vendor, M86 Security.’ The company continues by saying its filter gear was designed to be implemented into schools and enterprise businesses, not for an entire country. The article also touches on M86′s views on censorship.”
