Adblock Plus wants to help SMEs block ads on a company-wide level

Adblock Plus, the supposed scourge of the online advertising industry has announced its intentions to be adopted by SMEs and public organisations to help protect them from malware and ease up bandwidth.

Ben Williams of AdBlock Plus announced in a blog post with its latest update that it has been working on for some time a project it refers to as the “LSD project (for Large Scale Deployment)”.

This latest build of the Chrome app is designed to help the IT administrators of substantial networks at universities, businesses or organisations “cut down on distraction, save bandwidth and keep their networks safe from threats like ‘malvertising’, through the Adblock Plus extension.

Now en masse installs of the extension will now skip the first run page and make it easier for administrators to adopt the service across a vast network.

The company also states it is working on “optimizing large scale deployments”.
