With the sporting season in full swing and thousands of fascinating new World Cup and Wimbledon Web sites springing up to tempt people from work, those killjoys at Vistanet are offering network managers a free 30-day trial of the WebSENSE Internet Access Screening System, allowing system administrators to "deny or restrict" desktop access to various types of Web site, including sports-related ones. Its excuse is that the live score feeds and RealAudio commentaries could take up too much company bandwidth.
"IT managers who take us up on our offer of a 30-day trial of the WebSENSE screening software will be able to control this," said Caroline Bowden, managing director of Vistanet, "either by preventing it altogether, or taking the more humane approach of allowing it at lunchtimes."
