Here’s How to Make the Internet Far Less Distracting for Your Team

The average office worker needs to access the Internet in order to do their job. What they don’t need to access is cat videos, memes, social media, online games, and malware-ridden websites. How can a business owner clamp down on Internet activity in their office? By equipping their network with a content filtering solution, of course.

Having a content filtering solution allows you to block websites and online content visited by users across your network. This can range from staff at their workstations, remote employees on their mobile devices, and even customers taking advantage of your Wi-Fi. By implementing a content filtering solution, you will enhance your business in two key ways: productivity and security.

Regarding employee productivity, it’s likely that your office comes with enough difficult-to-manage distractions as it is, like mindless chitchat, political debates, and Mondays. So why would you want to add virtual distractions of the web to the list? With content filtering, you can rest assured that the time employees spend online is time that will benefit your bottom line.

Regarding security, all it takes is for one user to click on the wrong link and blammo, your network is infected with malware. Seeing as there are a ton of websites designed to be a delivery system for malware, and these sites are spoofed in a variety of ways that can trick even experienced users, you don’t want to leave the safeguarding of your network from these sites to chance. By having a content filtering solution in place, you can prevent users from visiting these dangerous sites, once and for all.

In addition to keeping employees out of sticky online situations, you can apply content filtering to your own computer to help keep yourself on task. Think, for example, of how embarrassing it would be if it were discovered that a website you visited was responsible for a massive, company-wide data breach. That is one apology letter that no business owner should have to write to their clients, and with a content filtering solution in place, you won’t have to.

As a bonus, a content filtering solution like what Integrated Business Technologies offers is specially designed for enterprises with multiple departments using the Internet for a variety of tasks. This allows you to filter websites on a per-user basis, meaning that you and whoever oversees marketing can access social media to run your company’s accounts, while other workers are blocked from such needless distractions.

As great as content filtering is, it’s only one piece of the network security puzzle. This is why we offer a security solution, like a Unified Threat Management tool, that comes with content filtering, as well as firewall protection, spam prevention, antivirus, and more. To shore up your network’s defenses from the worst of the web, call us today at (918) 770-8738.
