EcliXe has been designed and implemented to allow Internet Service Providers to automatically carry out with the requirements of the "Decreto Gentiloni", in order to forbid the access to the sites that offer child pornography stuff.
 

Product macro-capability
EcliXe automatically collects every day from the site of CNCP (National Center for the Contrast of Child Pornography) the updated list of the internet sites that offer child pornography stuff, then identifies the new sites to be forbidden or to be re-allowed comparing with the previous lists recorded in the database. The Xech solution then configures the network devices (DNS, firewall, router, etc.) in order to forbid to the internet users to access to the sites in the "black list" and notify to the CNCP the completion of the configuration. EcliXe furthermore notifies the administrator for any detected anomaly in the various phases of activity. The solution proposed by Xech is web-based and provided in high availability configuration.
