SAN DIEGO, Aug. 18, 2009 — A pioneering new feature on the
iBoss Enterprise Web Filter now makes the industry-leading
web-filtering device the only one on the market to offer the
ability to record, monitor and control user desktops. The
patent-pending Desktop Monitor Control and Record (DMCR)
function not only takes the guesswork out of confronting
Internet-use policy violators at large companies and
educational institutions, but potentially reduces overhead
by providing more efficient remote desktop control.
Confronting Internet policy violators without hard evidence
can be a minefield for school officials, corporate
administrators and HR staff, possibly leading to cause for a
lawsuit. Just an unintentional click on an online ad, pop
up, or prohibited application, or even a mistyped URL, can
potentially give rise to a wrongful accusation against an
innocent employee or student.
The iBoss Enterprise’s automatic DMCR feature helps
businesses and schools avoid this problem by allowing
administrators to set policy-violation thresholds in the
iBoss Web Filter that will trigger a recording of a user’s
desktop if and when these thresholds are crossed. For
example, a threshold can be set so if “5” attempts to access
an “adult” Web site are attempted within a “2 minute”
period, the user’s desktop will be recorded for “3 minutes”
to confirm the inappropriate activity. Thresholds can also
be set for other Internet categories or applications such as
chat, file sharing and downloading.
With this unique auto-record function, the iBoss Enterprise
is the only Web-filtering appliance available that allows
businesses and schools this level of control over their
network, while providing the necessary documentation when
Internet-use violations do occur. In addition, the DMRC’s
monitor function enables administrators to watch and control
user desktops live remotely, potentially reducing overhead
costs. Already offering a comprehensive solution for SMB and
large networks, the iBoss Enterprise also incorporates an
easy-to-navigate graphical user interface, robust Internet
traffic controls, a total network traffic analyzer and a
live, real-time database feed to ensure the most accurate
