Access to the Internet can be controlled using the industry?s first server-based access management tool with integrated firewall.
Developed by Raptor Systems, the Webnot tool enables network administrators to restrict Internet access by limiting it to certain times of the day, controlling the total time spent online by each user per day or per week, and by blocking specific sites. The last feature is especially significant for companies that may be liable for employees downloading illegal content, and for schools wanting to keep children off pornographic sites.
Shaun McConnon, Raptor?s president and chief executive, said: ?Our customers in business, education and government have identified URL blocking as a value-added security enhancement that addresses one of their primary concerns, which is the liability associated with the availability and content of the Internet. By incorporating URL blocking into the core network security management suite, we are able to provide our customers with enhanced control over the Internet.?
Webnot incoporates components of Cyberpatrol, the URL blocker from Microsystems Software, and can be centrally configured. It also comes loaded with a block list developed as part of Cyberpatrol, which is updated every six days and contains sites showing violence/profanity, gross depictions, drugs/drug culture, sex education and gambling.
