Web Monitoring

GFI WebMonitor™ boosts employee productivity by giving you complete Internet access control to monitor what users are browsing and downloading in real-time. Research by IDC shows that up to 40% of employee Internet access is non-work related. Internet monitoring software provides network administrators with the tools that enable you to monitor employees’ web browsing activities and to ensure that any files downloaded are free of viruses and other malware.

Internet Monitoring, categorization and web filtering coverage of over 205m URLs

GFI WebMonitor features a site categorization database which enables you to manage what sites users can browse and block access to websites in particular categories, such as adult materials, gaming, personal email, P2P, Facebook, MySpace and more. Internet monitoring is made easy with this extensive database that provides URL coverage for over 205,000,000 domains and that is updated daily.

Web security to protect against viruses, spyware, malware and phishing scams

GFI WebMonitor offers web security features that allow you to control your employees’ Internet access by monitoring what files employees are downloading, to block file-types such as MP3s and to scan all files for viruses, spyware and malware using multiple antivirus engines. GFI WebMonitor lowers the risk of social engineering by blocking access to phishing websites through the use of an auto-updatable database of phishing URLs. The web monitoring features also allow you to monitor and block Live Messenger (MSN) chat sessions and file transfers.
