Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) now have the option to enjoy GFI Software’s latest Web security and filtering solution, GFI WebMonitor 2013. The Internet is a vitality in the office, and needless to say, it has become equally important to manage the potential associated issues such as employee productivity, security risks and bandwidth loss.
Enter GFI WebMonitor 2013, the newly revamped version of GFI’s sterling WebMonitor solution.
This unique solution helps IT managers to deploy a roaming Web filtering agent on their laptop and notebook devices, which proactively protects the company from threats to productivity and malware by supporting them with complete control over Internet access.
Additionally, this solution protects organizations from flagging suspicious sites and blocking legitimate ones that have been temporarily compromised.
Furthermore, businesses can spread corporate browsing policies to company assets running outside of the corporate network to provide continuous filtering protection, whether employees are in-house or on-the-go.
The GFI WebMonitor's new roaming agent performs boasts robust and reliable functionality while at the same time, never compromising on connectivity speeds. It also touts unique features through which IT managers can trust their remote employees who take their devices home at night and are held to the same Internet usage policies that in-house employees follow.
"The line defining the amount of control IT managers can have over users' activity on work-issued devices is always blurred," explained David Attard, product manager, GFI Software in a statement. "A balance needs to be struck, as implementing too many browsing regulations can make employees unhappy and impede productivity. Yet, without enough controls in place businesses open themselves up to a variety of legal and security risks. GFI WebMonitor's new roaming agent provides IT with the best of both worlds.”
Attard added that this convenience offer employees the freedom to use the Internet as they wish, while simultaneously putting access controls in place to prevent them from visiting websites that could potentially cause malware infections or legal liabilities.
