Web filtering with advanced reporting.

Smoothwall : 25 June, 2007  (New Product)
Corporate Guardian combines internet content filtering technology with a reporting structure that enables business managers to control internet activity.
Corporate Guardian 6 is the latest addition to SmoothWall's family of content filtering products. Equally at home in both corporate and education environments, Corporate Guardian is a true multi-function web security system that analyses, controls, monitors and protects.

Content based filtering remains the key Guardian differentiator - a technology pioneered by SmoothWall. Guardian's Dynamic Content Analysis engine examines every user requested web page for objectionable content, embedded viruses, malware and browser exploits.

Enterprises want more than just great filtering, they want information - and this is where the new version really excels. Corporate Guardian 6 provides managers with the advanced reporting tools they need to understand their web usage, monitor web activity and identify users attempting to violate their Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). New features include; the facility to consolidate data from multiple Guardian systems for enterprise-wide reporting and the ability to create, store and automatically schedule customized reports in PDF, HTML and Excel formats. 'Drill down' mechanisms have also been radically refined and administrators can now investigate web activity instantaneously using AJAX-based real-time logs and traffic graphs.

Corporate Guardian 6 is the first SmoothWall product to incorporate daily blocklist content from the Internet Watch Foundation, an internationally-respected body that works in partnership with UK police and governments to combat child pornography and other illegal Internet content.

In April, a Gartner survey identified Internet surfing as a bigger security threat than email for companies and George Lungley, Managing Director of SmoothWall believes it is more important than ever for organizations to strengthen their web defenses; "As well as protecting themselves from the risks of idle employees, illegal activities and internal data leaks; organisations also need to protect their networks from web borne viruses and malicious software, and their users from criminal content."

Protecting against the perils of the web is now a much more sophisticated science with less advanced filters looking increasingly inadequate. With Corporate Guardian's intelligent protection, managers can effectively take control of web usage without breaking the budget.

Corporate Guardian 6 is available immediately, with a starting price of only £400 to protect a ten-computer network. Twelve months Upgrade Assurance and list subscriptions are included in the initial licence price, with second and subsequent year costs not exceeding 50 per cent of the first year price.
