Don’t let your students or employees put your organization at risk of legal liability that could significantly harm your organization. Manage and protect your company's Internet experience with powerful, state-of-the-art Internet protection tools including content filtering and reporting capabilities. Your organization can increase productivity, reduce liability, enhance corporate security, and preserve precious bandwidth by implementing ContentProtect Professional business web filtering software—a great regulatory compliance solution.

Pornography, hate, and other questionable content available on the Internet have the potential to put your organization at risk. Schools and other public organizations must sometimes comply with certain regulations (e.g., HIPAA, GLBA, and SEC/SOx). Legal liability risks around users downloading MP3s and full-length DVDs on school or library hard drives are becoming a major concern. Several cases of Internet and email misuse have resulted in lawsuits costing corporations millions of dollars.

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Motion Picture Association of America have warned that corporations and similar organizations will be held liable for breaking copyright laws if anyone on their networks download, store, or distribute music or movies illegally (Source IDC). ContentProtect Professional provides easy to install and maintain solutions that mitigate this risk by blocking inappropriate content and aiding in certain aspects of regulatory compliance.

One important feature ContentProtect Professional has is the ability to block peer-to-peer (P2P) applications, such as BitTorrent, Kazaa, eMule/eDonkey, and Gnutella. P2P applications are commonly used to download illegal music, software, objectionable movies, images, etc. They are huge threats to your organization’s regulatory compliance efforts. ContentProtect will not filter P2P applications, but they can be completely blocked, which eliminates the chance of any unwanted file making its way onto your organization’s network from one of these P2P sites.

As you work to keep your organization in compliance with regulations, ContentProtect facilitates your efforts with remote management and reporting. As the administrator, you can view reports of network use, manage and make changes to Internet policies, and permit or terminate Internet access, anywhere and at any time. As new issues or regulations arise, you can take immediate action to ensure your organization’s regulatory compliance.
