With millions of web pages being posted each day, this artificial intelligence engine has the capacity to keep pace with the massive growth of the Internet, its content and malicious threats.   As a result of this industry leading technology, this has massed and strategically categorized over 3.8 billion URLs to date and receives requests for over 10 million new URLs each and every day.

There has been heavy investment significantly into the development of a web-based administration tool-kit that enables the IT authorities to proactively manage the Internet access and activity of its immediate user community.  This tool ultimately offers the greatest form of defense, mitigating all relevant issues related to Internet user today.

The application is designed to manage the Internet access and activity of Internet users around the world.  Originally created as an alternative to the limited performance of the early filtering products that simply used word-blocking techniques and URL-blocking lists, the product was designed with the first automated and on demand content filtering categorisation system.  It is the first Internet content filtering company to develop and use a form of hybrid “AI” (Artificial Intelligence) technology to scan content, assign content to categories, and update its filter system without human intervention in real-time.

We fully understand that the only way to meet the exponential challenges of Internet growth is to develop, create, and adapt technology to suit our partners and clients.  Hence there is the drive to constantly raise the bar, making it the filter of choice with the best all-round performance, at a reasonable cost.

Research by IDC shows that up to 40% of employee Internet access is not work-related. While shutting off Internet access is impractical, Internet monitoring and access control software enables network administrators to reduce unproductive Internet use. Web controlling software help to boost employee productivity by giving the IT manager the ability to monitor and control Internet access in real time, ensuring that employee web browsing activity is aligned with business needs, and that any files downloaded are free of viruses and other malware.

GFI’s Web Monitor is a software-based alternative that focuses purely on web content security and is hosted on your own hardware platform.

Web security and filtering solutions are designed to help small and medium businesses (SMBs) better protect their infrastructures against cyber threats.

Time and bandwidth based browsing policies, and blocking for streaming media

A good tool lets you define web browsing policies which are based on time and bandwidth quotas, again on a per-user or per-IP basis. For example, you can allow a user to browse news category sites for only one hour per day or to download a maximum of 100MB per week. Such policies can be defined for specific websites or entire categories of websites. In other cases you can allow users to visit certain sites but block streaming media on them.

Soft blocking – ‘Warn and allow’ trusted users

Although blocking of certain categories of websites is recommended for most users, you might want to permit certain trusted users to override it. A web monitoring tool allows such users to self-police their Internet use as they are alerted when their action violates company policy but can decide whether their need to access this site is justified.

Blocklisting of ‘known bad websites’

A software should automatically blocklistwebsites which have been confirmed to be distributing malware, phishing content or otherwise serving content with malicious intent.

User/group/IP-based download control policies based on real file types

You should be able to create multiple user/group/IP-based download control policies to reflect security policies in the organization. For example, the administrator can create a policy to prevent downloading of executables, ZIP archives, videos and MP3 files.

Protect your network from viruses, spyware, phishing and other malware

Downloaded files should be scanned with multiple antivirus engines.
