Most business owners are happy to allow their staff to use the internet for personal use if it is done in moderation. The problem arises when staff abuse this privilege by spending time on the internet whilst they should be working, especially with the prevalence of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Applying controls on your staff’s use of the internet may be a necessary evil to eliminate staff unproductivity and also stop staff from accessing offensive or “unsafe” sites that may introduce viruses into your system.
We understand that you do not wish to stop your staff from using the internet completely. You simply want to restrict their usage of certain sites during certain hours and perhaps restrict patronage to those you deem harmful – the most common means of attacking a business’s security is through websites. Some harmful sites can hold viruses or malware (malicious software) which can be installed without the user even noticing. These can steal confidential information such as passwords, bank account numbers etc.
Our web filtering solutions have been designed to create controls that will not totally alienate your staff whilst ensuring their productivity is maintained and your systems are well protected.
