Web Browsing & Content Security

Expand all

The Risk

An organization’s ability to control access to malicious web sites and prevent inappropriate content from entering and leaving its network is critical in minimizing business risk and maximizing employee productivity.

The uncontrolled use of the web within an organization can pose a serious security threat when personnel, knowingly or unknowingly, visit websites containing inappropriate material or harmful code.  Malicious code and content entering the organization’s network via requested web pages, could infect users’ workstations and as a result, interrupt the normal operation.  More importantly, it could expose sensitive data by providing covert internal network access to remote Trojans hosts or Botnets.  Furthermore, exhibition and distribution, within the organization, of inappropriate or unsolicited content, may give rise to image damaging lawsuits.

Moreover, extensive Internet usage may result in undue consumption of valuable Internet bandwidth and result in increased communication costs and employee productivity loss.

Protecting your Organization

A Web browsing and Content security solution will protect your network and systems against the above mentioned threats by analyzing the content and code entering your network, restricting access to potentially dangerous sites and content, and blocking inappropriate web browsing.

Odyssey will help your organization select the Web browsing and Content security solution that most suitably addresses both your current as well as future needs.

Striking the right balance between providing your staff with access to information they need to produce maximum results, versus restricting access to legitimate and appropriate web content only, is the most critical aspect of a web content security solution’s effectiveness.  For this reason, utilizing our knowledge and experience, we will devote major part of our deployment effort in assisting you to develop and enforce a Web browsing and Content security policy for your organization, which successfully strikes this balance.
