Uncontrolled web surfing is costly and risky. Total freedom to roam the Internet can lower productivity and tie up bandwidth. It can also expose your company to increased legal liability with corporate responsibility making Directors personally liable for any failure to implement appropriate security systems and policies.
And it’s getting riskier. Internet surfing is the main entry point for viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, keyloggers, phishing, and more. With the new Web 2.0 technologies encouraging greater sharing the risks are intensified. However, not to employ the latest collaboration systems is only likely to threaten productivity.
The traditional method of web content filtering – URL block lists – is too limiting. To protect the clever network today, and take advantage of the new collaborative technologies, you need to go beyond the URL.
We have partnered with the leading vendors in each market sector – Websense for the Enterprise, Bloxx and Fortinet for the mid enterprise and SME – with user–based web content filtering solutions that look at the content itself and check for malware. In the Web 2.0 age they can help mitigate the risk of behaviour–based computing by taking a deeper look at the content and the way employees interact with it.
