How to block websites from employee use

BrowseControl’s web filter can block users from accessing specific websites - simply add the URLs or domains of the websites you would like to block to the blacklist! This internet control software makes managing internet access simple and effective no matter how specific your organization’s needs are.

3 Ways you can blacklist websites with BrowseControl

Category Filter: BrowseControl’s category filtering add-on lets you quickly block millions of websites across over 100 URL categories. Block access to porn, social media, virus-infected sites, warez, and more!

URL Filter: Enter URLs and domains to your blacklist to stop employees from accessing commonly abused websites. This feature can be used in reverse to add websites to your whitelist while blacklisting all other websites by enabling the internet off feature.

Granular Controls: Internet access permissions can be granularly controlled based on a single user, a specific device, or entire workgroups. CurrentWare’s Active Directory (AD) sync and centralized console makes managing your entire workforce simple and scalable.

BrowseControl's Category Filtering Window allows you to block websites based on specific categories

Why should I control employee internet access?

Increase Productivity: Nearly 82% of employees surveyed in the “On Cyberslacking: Workplace Status and Personal Internet Use at Work” report admitted to using the internet for personal reasons during work hours. A web filter can be used to block access to commonly abused websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Network Security: Malicious and compromised websites can stealthily infect networks with drive-by downloads. All an employee has to do is stumble upon one of these sites on social media or a phishing email for an exploit to compromise the network. A web filter adds an added layer of security by blocking these websites from being accessed in your network.

Data Loss Prevention: Unauthorized cloud storage, social networks, and web apps provide channels where sensitive data can be leaked. A web filter can proactively prevent access to these channels and stop employees from mishandling data.

Workplace Behavior: A web filter limits opportunities for employees to access NSFW content such as pornography, reducing inappropriate web usage that would otherwise contribute to a hostile work environment.

Bandwidth Management: Streaming a 4K Ultra HD Netflix video consumes 7GB of data per hour. Employees that use the company internet to stream videos waste valuable bandwidth and ruin the productivity of their coworkers by dramatically slowing down the speed of the internet.
