Benefits of Internet Access Control
Organisations may want to control Internet access for several reasons. Scammers and hackers rely on the weakest link in an organisation´s online security. Often this turns out to be their employees who may unintentionally expose the organisations’ network and computers to phishing campaigns and redirects to malicious websites. It only takes one employee to reveal their login credentials or one click on a spam email for the security of an entire network to potentially be compromised.
By controlling Internet lookups with DNSRazor, organisations prevent users from visiting websites that may compromise network security. These websites not only include locations are known to be harbouring malware, but those likely to contain risks.
Other reasons to control Internet access with DNSRazor include:
- The prevention of “cyber-slacking”. By controlling access to the Internet and eliminating opportunities for online time-wasting, organisations can enhance productivity in the workplace.
- Creating a better working environment. Prohibiting access to objectionable material such as pornography, racial hatred and religious intolerance, helps to prevent workplace discrimination.
- The prevention of illegal downloads. Technically, employers can be prosecuted for copyright infringement if they fail to implement measures to prevent a known illegal activity.
- Bandwidth savings. By restricting access to video streaming sites such as Netflix and YouTube, organisations ensure there is sufficient bandwidth for everyone at all times.
