Inappropriate internet usage is a growing problem that can cause your company serious financial, legal and computer networking problems. However, you, like many other companies, may have been afraid of the complexity and cost of content filtering solutions. MDI has come up with a solution for our clients. MDI is pleased to announce the launching of a new service, WebWatch.
What It Is
WebWatch is your solution for Web content filtering, analysis and control as well as Web access control. It is the most effective, affordable and easy-to-use solution available.
How It Works
WebWatch has a constant content analysis filter that scans web pages for words and phrases from numerous categories, including pornography, violence, drugs and racial hatred. A sophisticated page weighting system recognizes content that is clearly work related, avoiding the problem of over blocking medical and technical pages experienced by other content filters.
Other Features - Internet Analysis and Control
Analysis includes comprehensive reporting facilities to monitor internet usage. This provides managers with information on the most visited sites and attempted access to blocked pages. The control feature allows an organization to control what internet services its users can access. By default it will allow users unrestricted internet access but blocks all incoming traffic that does not result from a request from the company's protected network. This prevents outside parties from obtaining confidential data from your PC's or any servers to which they could have access.WebWatch is the answer to keep objectionable content at bay, reduce waste of time and increase productivity and avoid legal issues. Protect your company now by using MDI's newest service, WebWatch.
The premier computer and network service provider since 1983
