Web monitoring software resized

Offers Web filtering, Web security and unified protection

Security vendor GFI Software has repackaged its WebMonitor software into three editions, designed to better target the needs of different organizations.

WebMonitor 4.0 offers organizations a way to limit employees' use of the Internet to business-critical sites, while also securing their Web use, according to company officials. The software, targeted primarily at small- and midsized businesses, is now available in the following three packages:

    WebFilter Edition, with GFI's WebGrade database that categorizes Web sites based on human review, as well as filtering technology that lets administrators block employee access to sites based on their category (such as adult, and online gaming). This edition monitors the sites visited and the bandwidth used by employees, and lets administrators set policies on a user-by-user basis. The package is priced per user; an organization with 500 users would pay US$12.87 per user per year for the first year.

  • WebSecurity Edition, which includes download control policies that dictate and monitor which files employees download from the Web, blocking select file types such as MP3s. The package also includes virus scanners that check each file downloaded from the Web for viruses, and blocks access to known phishing sites via an included database of malicious sites that is automatically updated. This edition is priced per user; an organization with 500 users would pay US$8.05 per user per year for the first year.

  • UnifiedProtection Edition, which includes monitoring Web sites and Web downloads, and also blocks applications that connect to Web sites to download updates. This package also tracks traffic that is downloaded and uploaded to the Web, counts URL hits over time, provides whitelists and blacklists for making exceptions to policies, and offers access to the product's configuration and monitoring interface.
The company also sells e-mail security software and e-mail archiving products.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
