Review: Livia Web Protection offers the first-rate filtering of Websense for Parents

(Filtering Facts)
Some former Websense managers have started up an Internet security solutions provider called Total Tech.  Their product offering is called Livia Web Protection, and it's basically Websense's filtering "in the cloud" - i.e., with the filtering done on remote servers rather than on your desktop. This is a good thing, because filtering databases have become too large and are updated too frequently now to be practical running on individual desktops as they were in the 1990s. This is about the best quality filtering I've seen, blocking everything in my test sample.
