Safer surfing for staff at New Forest National Park

Bloxx : 18 August, 2009  (Application Story)
UK national park authority chooses web content filtering software from Bloxx for improving staff protection and for monitoring internet usage
Bloxx, the Web content filtering specialist, has announced that New Forest National Park Authority is using its Web filtering appliance to safeguard users when surfing the Internet and increase network protection to minimise security risks. Additionally, the powerful reporting capability of the appliance is being used by the Authority to strengthen protection and compliance.

With the help of IT specialists ASL Security, the Authority directly compared Bloxx with their existing managed service Web filtering solution and concluded that Bloxx provided all the flexibility, functionality and capabilities they required to more easily manage Internet access at a price that was very competitive.

After nearly a year using the Bloxx appliance, the Authority is delighted with the results. Paul Fleetwood IT Manager at New Forest National Park Authority explains, "The Authority now has the flexibility to offer different Internet usage parameters to our staff. I can easily set up usage policies per user, department or group as well as dynamically block or allow sites, and thus protect staff from accessing inappropriate sites completely and non-business-related sites at certain times of the working day."

Paul adds "We can customise settings for web content and URL blocking dynamically in real-time. I also have reports automatically generated and emailed to me on a regular basis. I can view key indicators and have all the intelligence I need at my finger tips to enforce more stringent protection if and when required."

"I now have an easy-to-manage, in-house web filtering solution, providing all the capabilities and functionality I need to protect staff when online that will generate savings to the Authority in the region of £6,000 over three years when compared with the cost of my previous managed service solution," concludes Paul.
