YebCloud, Namibia’s foremost Cloud Services Provider, today launches its Web Content Filtering Solution. It enables organisations to manage and control internet usage, optimising Internet bandwidth utilisation and increasing employee productivity.
With the ever continuing expansion of the Internet as an important carrier of business transactions and the explosion of social media; Internet access has become both vital and potentially hazardous for organisations and their employees. The line between work-related surfing and personal usage of the Internet has blurred considerably over the years. This has created a huge demand on the bandwidth requirements of organisations leading to frustration as Internet access slows down due to the sheer volume of data traffic. In addition to the slowdown of Internet access for those who need to use it at critical times for business purposes, employee productivity inevitably decreases. Often websites exposes organisations to web borne malware (threats), compromising security of business networks and data.
There are a number of solutions for managing Internet access but these solutions tend to be expensive and complex to implement and manage. Salt’s easy to use Web Content Filtering solution empowers organisations to manage and control the way the Internet is being used. It provides organisations with the flexibility to pick and choose who within the company can access which sites and even at what times. The web filtering solution will also increase productivity of employees as web sites that need to be accessed for work, are actually accessible faster and are not being obstructed due to inappropriate personal internet usage. An added benefit is that organisations do not have to continuously upgrade their Internet bandwidth but can rather make better use of what they already have, leading to cost savings. This is a cloud-based service, meaning organisations do not require any additional hardware or software for deployment. The Web Content Filter also works via any type of Internet connection, whether it is 3G, Wi-Fi or ADSL.
“Business owners simply can’t afford to ignore the benefits of controlled internet usage. With Salt’s Web Content Filter solution, organisations have the means of managing Internet usage and consequently increase employee productivity” states Chris Baisako, Business Development Consultant.
