FutureSoft, a developer of networking and security technology, has announced the release of DynaComm i:filter 7.0 - the next generation in web filtering. DynaComm i:filter 7.0 monitors and filters employee Internet access to help manage costs associated with unchecked bandwidth usage, access to malicious web content, exposure to adult material, and losses in employee productivity.

According to a survey by International Data Corp (IDC), 30 to 40% of Internet access is spent on non-work related browsing, and a staggering 60% of all online purchases are made during working hours. According to another survey, conducted by IT services company Morse, the use of social media services Facebook and Twitter 'costs business £1.38 billion each year in lost productivity'.

"When employees use the Internet in the workplace, organisations today are faced with the same two issues as they were yester­day - reduced work productivity and possible litigation," explained Tim Farrell, CEO and co-founder, FutureSoft. "DynaComm i:filter is built to address the underlying business needs driving the adoption of web filtering technology. It enables organisations to fully appreciate the way in which their employees are using the Internet to help reduce costs, increase productivity and network speed, as well as limit liability."

DynaComm i:filter 7.0 provides organisations with a granular approach to their Internet access strategies. It is highly flexible, enabling administrators to manage, monitor, and secure employee Internet access through several deployment methods. The new system dashboard provides a real time graphical view of both monitored and blocked traffic to address abnormal traffic patterns proactively and access information immediately. Administrators can also access historical traffic patterns and look at system alerts via the same dashboard to maintain a healthy network.

Scalable from 10 to 10,000 users, administrators retain complete control of when individual users or groups of users access the Internet or specific sites by day of the week, time of day, or length of browse time. The new graphical user interface is designed in such a way that once web filtering policies have been implemented, many tasks for controlling employee Internet access can be automated. Unnecessary Internet surfing and resource-consuming file downloads can be restricted, thus preserving an organisations network bandwidth.

However, an Internet use policy that allows certain users or groups of users the ability to override blocked messages and continue with their work can also be implemented. This is a convenient way for administrators and managers to access sites or download files from an end user's workstation for maintenance and support purposes.

DynaComm i:filter's 50 predefined reports can be tailored to any environment and scheduled for email delivery to administrators and managers. Reports are generated on demand or through scheduled jobs, and predefined reports can provide a summary or detailed information, which can be used as-is or customised to an organisation's unique needs.

"Internet filtering solutions are a necessity for an organisation's effi­ciency, as well as to safeguard employees, customers and company resources," concluded Farrell. "The ideal solution provides both a high degree of accuracy and the ability to operate in conjunction with other information gathering tools to filter and monitor across the entire spectrum of Internet activity."
