Taking the Guesswork Out of Confronting Internet Policy Violators, iBoss Web Filters

First Web Filter to Offer Auto-Record and Live Monitoring Ensures Accurate Data on Violations

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 16 / / - Confronting potential Internet policy violators can be a minefield for school officials, corporate administrators, and HR staff. At best, confrontations can be awkward and uncomfortable; at worst, cause for a lawsuit. The very real potential for an unintentional click on an online ad, pop up, or prohibited application, or even a mistyped URL, may result in an otherwise innocent student or loyal employee feeling unjustly accused. By the same token, without hard proof of excessive violations, the confrontation can turn into a fruitless "He said, she said" scenario.

All this can be avoided, however, thanks to a new patent-pending feature in Phantom Technologies' iBoss Enterprise Web Filter. Its automatic Desktop Monitor Control and Record (DMCR) function allows businesses and educational institutions to set policy-violation thresholds in the iBoss Web Filter, making it possible to record users' desktops if 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.

The DMCR's unique auto-record function makes the iBoss Enterprise the only Web-filtering appliance on the market that allows businesses this level of control over their network, while providing supporting information when Internet-use violations occur. In addition, its 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 filtering possible.

"Phantom Technologies' DMCR feature is just one of many new Web-filtering innovations we are proud to release in 2009. As we continue pushing the envelope to make the iBoss line of Web Filters the most advanced in the industry, the DMCR demonstrates our commitment to offering the most powerful tools for businesses to protect themselves," says Peter Martini, COO of Phantom Technologies.
