Protect Your Employees from Harmful or Inappropriate Content

Modern Office

More info

In today's world, businesses are increasingly reliant on their employees using the internet for work. However, this also means that employees are exposed to a variety of online content, some of which may be harmful or inappropriate.

Blocking inappropriate web content

Content filtering is a way to control what employees can access online.

 

It can be used to block access to certain websites, keywords, or even entire categories of content. This can help to protect employees from harmful or inappropriate content, as well as from productivity losses due to non-work related internet use.

If you're looking for a way to protect your organisation's employees, you should consider content filtering. It's a great way to keep your employees safe and productive.

How content filtering is implemented:

 

Network-Level Filtering: How it Works: Filtering happens on your network's gateway device (e.g., firewall or a dedicated appliance). You create rules blocking certain websites, content categories (gambling, adult content, etc.), or file types.

---

 Client-Based Software: How it Works: Small software agents are installed on each company-owned device (laptop, desktop, etc.). The software enforces filtering rules even if the device is off the company network.

---

Cloud-Based Filtering: How it Works: Network traffic is routed through a cloud service provider specialising in filtering. Rules are set in their dashboard, and their systems enforce them. This can be done at the DNS level (blocking domain names) or with deeper analysis.


 

What's Right for Your Business?


Most SMEs choose cloud-based web content filtering for a combination of practical and security-related reasons.  Here's why:

 

Ease and Scalability: Cloud-based solutions require no hardware installation or complex network configuration, an enormous advantage for businesses. As your business grows, adding users is as easy as adjusting your subscription.

---

Cost-Effective: You avoid upfront hardware costs, and the ongoing subscription model makes budgeting predictable.

---

Offload Expertise: Cloud filtering providers specialise in keeping their systems up-to-date with the latest threats. This is a huge benefit for SMEs that can't dedicate internal resources to this constantly evolving landscape.

---

Remote Work Friendly: Cloud filtering protects your employees and data even when they work
