Web Security, Compliance and Employee Productivity

When they are free to roam on the web employees can abuse the trust placed in them and potentially end up in bad places. This can lead to productivity loss, reduced bandwidth, and to financial and legal risks. WatchGuard WebBlocker allows you to monitor and control web activity across your network.

Key Features

  • WebBlocker blocks malicious websites and risky content
  • Unsuitable workplace content is blocked which helps you enforce company policies and boost employee productivity
  • There are over 130 blocking categories and subcategories to choose from. Filter on both HTTPS and HTTP
  • WebBlocker enables you to allow or restrict Web URL’s with policies based on group, user and schedule
  • There are Instant notifications available when users attempt to access blocked URL’s
  • WatchGuard WebBlocker Seamlessly integrates with WatchGuard Cloud Visibility / Dimension to give you full visibility of all web activity

Block Access to Malicious Sites

You are able to protect your network against malicious activity and risky content by using advanced web filtering. WebBlocker includes a hosted Forcepoint URL database that provides you with constant up-to-the-minute protection to keep your network secure and protect sensitive data. Additional web filtering and security coverage is provided by Forcepoint Security Labs and ThreatSeeker Intelligence Network Technology.

Enforce Organisational Policies and Increase Employee Productivity

Your organisation may have policies restricting offensive or inappropriate content but WebBlocker gives you more granular control. For example, you can block social media use for all but marketing employees, or only allow access to entertainment in lunch hours. WatchGuard WebBlocker gives you complete control to set different policies by group or by user.

Ensure Network Bandwidth for Critical Applications

Cyberloafing can hugely impact critical applications and your business. Impacts include VoIP Phone call quality being compromised, higher than expected bandwidth charges, and exposure to web-based risk. WebBlocker allows you to block or limit activity that is not related to work to protect bandwidth.

Web Filtering Made Easy

WatchGuard WebBlocker provides you with an intuitive management console allowing you to quickly apply security, compliance or productivity policies by group and by user, or by schedule using 130 pre-defined blocking categories. In addition, one-time access can be granted for specific needs, and alerts set to inform you when users try and access blocked content.

Complete visibility of Web Activity

WebBlocker seamlessly works with WatchGuard Cloud Visibility and Dimension which gives you full visibility of all web activity including user activity, blocked websites, most viewed and much more. Web audit reports are available for detailed analysis.

How WebBlocker works

WatchGuard WebBlocker identifies the URL a user requests and sends a query to the cloud to classify its category and sub-category. Once policies have been set the Firebox will allow or deny access based on user, group and schedule settings.
