Protect your business. Regain employee productivity.
Every day, your employees are exposed to over 40,000 new threats on the Web. Hackers and cybercriminals are committed to staying a step (or few) ahead of the most experienced cyber security experts, using advanced tactics to elude conventional Internet security controls and monitoring systems. These threats expose your data to risk and create serious issues on your network that could potentially bring your business operations to a complete standstill.
Protecting Your Business from Your Employees
Malicious exploits are not the only threats from the Internet to worry about. Permitting your staff full and unmonitored access to the Internet exposes your organization to a wide range of issues and potential disasters.
Lost employee productivity due to excessive use of non-work related websites and online services — such as social networking sites; online auctions, gaming, and gambling; personal web-based email; celebrity news and gossip sites; torrents and file download sites; and sites with inappropriate, objectionable, and/or obscene content such as adult content and pornography — cost companies tens of thousands to millions of dollars each year.
Some recent stats that relate to the impact of employee Internet use include:
- 30 to 40% of Internet use in the workplace is not related to business
- Over 60% of all online purchases are made between 9AM and 5PM
- 70% of all Internet pornography traffic occurs during the 9AM and 5PM workday
- 37% of workers say they surf the Web constantly while at work
Your business is liable for the data that flows through its network and servers. In an ideal world, you should be able to trust that all of your employees will use the Internet primarily for job-related tasks and appropriate content. However, the reality is very different, and it only takes one rogue user’s actions to create serious legal problems for your organization if his or her actions are not monitored, detected and thwarted.
Having no restrictions on employee Internet surfing means that these risks are significant and real.
