Real-time HTTP/FTP monitoring, anti-virus & access control
Companies must exercise some control over users’ web browsing habits – not only to ensure productive use of the Internet but also to safeguard users from adult sites and to ensure that downloads are virus free. The traditional full-blown web proxy filters are cumbersome to install/administer and expensive to buy, while log file analyzers are awkward to use and do not allow for real-time monitoring and blocking.
GFI WebMonitor is a utility for Microsoft ISA Server that allows you to monitor the sites users are browsing and what files they are downloading – in REAL TIME. In addition it can block access to adult sites as well as performing anti-virus scanning on all downloads. GFI WebMonitor is the perfect solution to transparently exercise a degree of access control over users’ browsing habits and ensure legal compliance – in a manner that will not alienate your network users!
Internet access control made easy and affordable
With GFI WebMonitor, administrators can review current and recent website access and downloads right from their browser. They can type in http://monitor.isa to see a list of websites accessed by users and files downloaded. GFI WebMonitor costs a fraction of the price of other Internet
access control, monitoring and anti-virus products. Because the product runs on ISA Server, no dedicated machine or network re-configuration is required.
Multiple anti-virus protection through Norman Virus Control and BitDefender
GFI WebMonitor is bundled with Norman Virus Control and BitDefender. Norman Virus Control is an industrial strength virus engine that has received the 100% Virus Bulletin award 16 times running. It also has ICSA and Checkmark certification. BitDefender is a very fast and
flexible virus engine that excels in the number of formats it can recognize and scan. BitDefender is ICSA certified and has won the 100% Virus Bulletin award and the European Information Technologies Prize 2002. GFI WebMonitor automatically checks and updates the Norman Virus
Control and BitDefender definition files as they become available. The GFI WebMonitor price includes updates for one year.
Blocking of adult websites based on Yahoo!’s SafeSearch
GFI WebMonitor allows you to block adult websites depending on their content classification by Yahoo! SafeSearch. Rather than using a custom local categorization database, which will invariably fast become out-of-date with the hundreds of new adult content sites being introduced daily. Through GFI WebMonitor, you need not manually update filter lists, which is both time-consuming and expensive. When a user requests access to a particular site, GFI WebMonitor queries the Yahoo! SafeSearch service to see whether the site contains adult content. If it does, the site is added on the fly to ISA Server ‘Adult’ Destination set. An ISA administrator can block this URL set by creating a common access blocking rule on the server. It is also possible to further configure this GFI WebMonitor feature by editing a script to use different websites for site-checking, such as Google; however, these sites' terms and conditions apply.
Malware (Trojans, spyware, etc) blocking via Kaspersky - optional
To achieve even greater security and benefit from scanning via multiple virus engines, users can add the Kaspersky SuperSecure anti-virus engine, available as an optional add-on. The Kaspersky SuperSecure database includes support for the detection of malicious software that can perform remote administration, keyboard espionage, password detection, automatic dial-up to paid sites, automatic downloads of files containing explicit materials and more. GFI WebMonitor automatically checks and updates the Kaspersky definition files as they become available.
