 Web Filtering

CurrentWare’s BrowseControl provides the best WebTitan alternatives for internet security and policy management.

Both solutions provide essential endpoint security management features including the ability to block security threats such as known malicious websites.

Both CurrentWare and WebTitan will provide you with the granular access policies needed to ensure that everyday web usage in your organization is free from inappropriate web browsing.

BrowseControl’s key advantage is the ability to granularly restrict and allow specific URLs. With WebTitan the entire domain must be blocked; if you’d like to block the majority of a website while allowing access to specific pages you’ll need BrowseControl’s URL filter.

Both companies offer a partner program for Managed Service Providers and resellers, though CurrentWare does not yet offer a white-label version of its internet restriction tool.

Employee Monitoring

The CurrentWare Suite includes BrowseReporter, a powerful employee monitoring solution to help ensure that your everyday internet users are avoiding harmful sites and time wasting web content such as social media sites, malicious websites, adult sites, and streaming media.

While WebTitan does offer a modest level of web traffic monitoring, it lacks the granular insights into employee internet usage that a dedicated employee monitoring tool can provide.

BrowseReporter’s continuous monitoring and comprehensive reporting engine provides detailed insights on managed computers including employee productivity, misused bandwidth, Windows applications, active/idle time, and web browsing.

Data Loss Prevention

Surprisingly, WebTitan’s web category database does not include a cloud storage category.

CurrentWare’s web filtering module BrowseControl includes 100+ content categories including file storage, social media, porn, games, and known virus-infected websites.
