Web filtering with access and control management, because enhanced web security is crucial in todays connected world.
As a business you want to ensure that your employees stay focused and efficient, you want to reduce web threats to your organization, you want to block malware, and virus, phishing and scams.
You want to protect your employees, your organization, your critical and confidential data, your reputation, and you want to be able to excel in your business and ensure growth. Surfwall Remote can help you do all this.
Web filtering is no longer just about preventing employees from wasting time on chat forums, reading the news, or blocking offensive content. With social media, there is Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networking sites to keep in mind, and in check.
Some sites, like Linkedin, can help you grow your business, but all such sites can open up for malware and pose security risks.
You also have your reputation to think about, as you would not want to your employees moan about their work on social media; this can spiral out of control. You need to make sure your employees don’t put your business at risk, by applying a sound security solution.
With Surfwall Remote, you can decide just how social or how connected your workplace should be. Some employees need to access news, some need to be on Twitter, and others on LinkedIn, whereas others don’t need to be online at all for work purposes.
Key reasons to incorporate Web filtering in your
IT infrastructure include:
Protect your systems or intranet from malware. Internet sites can upload malware onto user computers without notice or approval. Malware programs may replicate and destroy data - computer viruses fall into this category - as well as gather data from company computers and send it to other locations for criminal activity.
One of the biggest security risks is posed by malware programs that could steal company passwords and financial information. Malware can also slow down computers with spamming ads or pop-ups.
Web filtering solutions, such as Surfwall Remote, prevent Malware programs from accessing your systems.
By restricting websites and content through web filtering solutions, companies can increase workplace efficiency all around. Online banking, social networking, pornography downloads and ecommerce (gift purchases, grocery orders) all have their highest activity ratings during work hours. This equals a huge amount of wasted time for businesses. According to some statistics, Internet misuse at the office costs U.S. businesses more than $63 billion in lost profits annually.
Web filtering solutions such as Surfwall Remote can block employees from using specific web applications. Companies can block games so that their employees cannot play them during working hours, along with other social media applications that can pass along malware programs. Blocking applications will increase efficiency and helps prevent malware infection.
Increased Internet Speed
Technically speaking, activities like online games and gambling, while against company policy, can reduce bandwidth and make it more difficult for other employees that are actually working (as opposed to engaging in social networking, shopping or game play), to complete tasks as quickly as possible. Managing and controlling Internet access will improve not only efficiency but bandwidth speed.
Web filtering solutions reduce liability associated with internet activity. Employees who download copyrighted material such as music, offensive or illegal content (for example pornographic or hate inciting) at work could expose the business to liabilities in case of lawsuits or other types of legal action. Web filtering therefore reduces the risk complex legal liability issues.
