Enhanced Internet Security
UserGate Web Filter is designed to provide effective security against web threats, such as phishing, Trojans, keyloggers, botnets, malware, etc. It is also the best and broadest protection against new and zero-hour threats. Moreover, the product features built-in antivirus protection that makes web surfing much safer. Our modular design gives industry-leading performance through ultra-low processing, memory, storage, and bandwidth consumption.
Corporate Policies Enforcement
UserGate Web Filter can control access to websites, Web 2.0 content, downloads, or streaming media based on users, groups, and time. Our product can enforce granular policies that can provide security, increase productivity, and enforce any reasonable corporate policy. An SSL inspection function allows you to apply these policies to all social networks and search engines that would be otherwise impossible.
Monitoring User Internet Activity
It is broadly assumed that office workers with access to computers spend some portion of their day using them for personal communication, social networking, reading blogs, sports or news sites, or pleasure. The actual wasted time and productivity turns out to be staggering. When a user knows that his or her Internet activity can be monitored they are more likely to restrict the time they spend on such websites.
Managing Social Media
UserGate Web Filter provides social network usage control and granular policies. So you can generally allow using Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Foursquare, or Twitter but all messages containing words from certain dictionaries, such as Pornography, Bad Words, Drugs, Gambling, or any custom ones, can be blocked.
Blocking banners and pop-ups
Pop-ups are the bane of web surfers: it is all too easy to accidentally click a link in an obnoxious ad image. UserGate Web Filter does away with pop-ups, including ones loaded from other sites. Banner ads are another significant source of annoyance. Visiting a safe site can still force you to view pornographic images in ads on the page margin, for example. UserGate Web Filter solves this problem too by zapping banner ads before users ever see them.
Protecting your privacy
It's no secret that there's big money to be made in violating your privacy. Facebook, Google, and hundreds of other advertising networks and data collection sites track you as you browse the Web. UserGate Web Filter protects your privacy by blocking the invisible tracking cookies and plug-ins on many websites and banishing social networks from transmitting data about you after you leave those sites.
