Bloxx Becomes a Member of the IWF

Bloxx, the web filtering specialist, has become a member Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), joining around 80 members from a diverse range of organisations in their battle against illegal online content. With its expert knowledge of up-to-date web filtering technologies, Bloxx hopes to contribute to the remarkable success of the IWF in tackling online illegal content; specifically child sexual abuse images hosted worldwide and criminally obscene and racial hatred content hosted in the UK.

Through working closely with the online sector, the government and general public, the IWF aims to foster trust and confidence in the Internet among current and future users; assist service providers in combating the abuse of their systems and to assist law enforcement in the fight against online illegal content. The IWF operates a UK 'Hotline', enabling the public and IT professionals to report any instances of potentially illegal content on the internet in order to remove it, prevent access to it and disrupt the activities of those operating such websites.
