Controlling the content on your network
Some content is dangerous, some is just inappropriate, both types need to be controlled and monitored to protect assets and reputations. Don’t wait until its too late to act.
There are almost endless categories of content available on the internet. Public networks have a legal duty to block the most extreme content, identified by the Internet Watch Foundation (www.iwf.org.uk) for example, but Adult Content is a free choice on public networks. Enterprises often have codes of conduct and duties of care towards employees, that can require the control of access to adult content.
Other types of content available includes Malware, spyware, botnet traffic and many more malicious traffic types that can lead to some very bad consequences. According to Threatpost, one in five computer users experienced one or more malware web attacks in 2019, with no sign of things changing soon.
You may think your firewall is stopping everything coming in, but can you be sure? How about BYOD users? Can you be sure they are clean? Phishing attacks? Having a network solution able to look at your traffic and identify malicious flows and connections is an invaluable tool to prevent the spread of malware and botnets inside your network.
