Features: Date & Time Scheduling

LAD's features for date and time scheduling lets you implement both device-variable, but also time- and date-variable firewall rules, so that you can allow just the connectivity where and when you need it. If no one is supposed to be using the desktop computers at the office at midnight, don't let them get on the Internet when no one is there. If you want to kick your kids off the Internet at 9:00PM, you can, while keeping your own access available. Just like LAD's multi-dimensional firewall, LAD's scheduling features let you get a proper fit for everyone, instead of one-size-fits-all.

While on the face of it, it may not seem to matter whether your computer's Internet access is more restrictive at one time than another, but if you look a little deeper into it, it makes sense to lock it up when you aren't using it (just like you lock your car when you aren't driving it). Just as you wouldn't want anyone taking a test drive of your car behind your back, you likely don't want your computer moonlighting for someone else when you are asleep. LAD's day- and time-based scheduling helps keep your computer in line, even when you are away.

Other LAD Features

  • Lateral Firewall: Thousands of sophisticated rules let you control specifically what is allowed and what is not allowed, down to as granular a level as you like, with device-specific, date-specific and time-specific variability [read more].
  • Date & Time Scheduling: Want your computer to disconnect at the end of the day, when you do? LAD's scheduling features let you cut off Internet access partially or fully on a schedule of your choosing [read more].
  • LateralDNS: Simplify and streamline the blocking of unwanted online content and services using domain names for consistent and reliable results [read more].
  • Packet Capture: LAD's packet capture feature lets you capture as much or as little of the Internet and network traffic as you like. This information comes in handy should a network incident require investigation [read more].
  • NAT: Network address translation obscures private/internal IP addresses from the public internet, so that only the Internet-facing IP address is used for communications leaving the private/internal network.
  • DNS: LAD's DNS services monitor and control domain name resolution with no intermediaries, making you impervious to DNS-based exploits and vulnerabilities [read more].
  • Switching & Routing: LAD provides switching and routing services, meaning you can plug all of your devices directly into your LAD without an intervening switch or router.
  • Local Access Control: Locally you can limit which devices on the network can talk to each other and with the Internet, as well as specify the types of communications allowed [read more].
  • Automatic Activity Report: LAD generates reports every eight hours, giving you an overview of your network traffic, plus individual graphs on bandwidth usage for each device on your network.
  • LateralTime: Use LAD's LateralTime feature to sychronize the devices on your network to the same time.
