Acclaim Housing Group is delivering superior Internet monitoring and reporting by using Bloxx’s real time Web filtering, powered by its patented Tru-View Technology. With a more dynamic, intuitive and feature-rich Web filter from Bloxx, the group can fully protect staff from viewing nasty or productivity-draining Web sites in real time.
In April 2010 the group installed a Bloxx Web Filter 250W and is now proactively monitoring and managing Internet access for around 150 users. The adaptive and dynamic nature of the Bloxx Web filtering categorises Web pages in real time and is blocking or allowing access as defined in the Internet Policy enforced by the group.
Neil Clarke, Network and Security Administrator at the group explains, “We now have all the functionality we need to manage our Web content filtering, delivering the much needed monitoring power to help us protect our Internet users and network. I consult the reports and logs throughout the day and now have all the information I need to deal with any user or network usage and protection issue.”
The installation of the Bloxx Web Filter was straightforward and the ongoing management of Internet content filtering at the group is much easier. “Bloxx has certainly made our lives easier. We have saved valuable IT administration time as we can now easily manage Website access and unblock Web pages as required. We can see at a glance what our network is being used for so we can take action if the network becomes congested. We have found Bloxx support staff to be more knowledgeable and feel that they go that extra mile in resolving any issue we have had.”
