What’s the Benefit of Content Filtering?
Time is money for businesses. One of the great things about the internet is that it provides so many tools and resources to save time. But there’s a flip side, because once online it can be tempting to take a quick break to check social media and other websites unrelated to work, with implications for productivity. This is where content filtering comes in.
When it comes to content filtering, Quikteks has the solution. So let’s take a look at what it is, how it works and how it can help you and your business.
About content filtering
It’s all in the name – the content that can be accessed is filtered, and some of it can be blocked from your network. You decide what content can be viewed at work and what is unsafe or undesirable.
Lost productivity, because people are spending too much time online visiting sites that aren’t work- related, is of course a potentially serious problem. Visiting unsafe sites can be a whole lot more problematic. Visiting unsafe websites can open the door to malware and other cyberthreats and could lead to serious security, financial and legal problems. A content filtering system will allow you to manage access so that the risks are minimized.
Things to consider when opting for content filtering
A content filtering solution is a business resource, not just a way to police efficiency and keep staff focused on work. Security should always be a priority but the needs of your staff should also be taken into account. It might not be good for your office culture to go overboard so people can’t do anything that isn’t work related, even on their lunch break. You’ll need to decide how far to go.
What kind of content do you really need to filter out? Will the filters apply to everyone or will you customize them so some people or departments have access? (For example, marketing departments might need to have access to social media websites.) These are things you need to think through before implement a content filtering solution.
