If the answer is ‘no’, you could be at risk. Businesses today are utilizing a two-step approach to reduce the risk and minimize non-productive activities. These are:
- implementing an Internet Acceptable Use Policy (IAUP) and,
- installing a monitoring system to restrict and police employees' online activities
Unfortunately, not everyone follows policies, and some people will accidentally violate your IAUP. To ensure company policies are being followed, businesses are choosing to monitor all Internet activity initiated by their employees using a web content filtering software (or hardware).
Tools available today, such as PTS Managed Firewall, make monitoring of employee Internet usage simple and easy. Most companies choose to regularly monitor summary level activity like hours connected to the web, number of sites visited, and illegal or banned sites visited by the company, while leaving detailed transaction reviews as necessary on a case-by-case basis. If you no longer want to be at risk, contact our friendly staff at PTS to find out how our managed firewall can help protect your business.
