FamilyConnect, Inc. was founded in 1997 as a filtered Internet Service Provider (ISP) which provided nationwide dial up access bundled with content filtering. A few years later S4F, Inc. was created as a company for private branding of its filtering product called the FilterPak. S4F is an acronym that stands for “Server Side Sub System Filter”, which is a description of how the FilterPak works.

Centipede Networks was created as a dba of S4F in an effort to target businesses and schools with a product line of Firewalls and WebFilters.

Centipede Networks has developed into a market leader in the areas of Internet filtering and network security. Since the very beginning, the goal has been to provide high quality products with unsurpassed support at a great price. Reaching these goals is accomplished through the continuation of product development, advancement of support, and the expansion of the partner program. These goals are instilled in every employee, partner, and investor; and we strive to meet these goals every day.
