Internet access is a must for most companies. This can create problems when a business has no means of monitoring what employees are doing online. BrowseControl is a complete solution for securing a business network. It allows for employee monitoring, filtering of websites, and restriction of file downloads. Businesses should be concerned how their networks are being used, and BrowseControl can work to ease those concerns. This software can block employees from viewing distracting content. There are more than 100 categories to choose from when selecting sites to block. Many businesses use the blocking feature to prevent access to social media sites that can distract from work or websites that might not be suitable for a work environment. Categories offered include adult, adult dating, gambling, music, porn, and shopping. Comprehensive reports can be generated for every computer on the network. This allows management to observe how individual employees are using the Internet. It is easy to determine when employees are browsing sites that are unrelated to work projects. Applications like games, chat programs, and media players can also be blocked. The monitoring and security provided by BrowseControl can easily be extended to laptops that are taken off the company premises. Companies with proprietary software or applications can also restrict USB and Bluetooth devices. The possibilities are almost endless. BrowseControl is a very functional piece of software that acts as a gatekeeper. Use of the software will likely help to increase productivity and prevent security risks. Business owners cannot be everywhere all the time. BrowseControl puts eyes on a network 24/7.
