Posted by on 23 January 2012 09:58 AM

Vigor2920 series embedded with Content Security Management (CSM) function combined with Object setting mechanism can establish a highly productive environment for small and mid size business by comprehensive web activity management.

 

Let’s see what today’s SMBs are facing and know the importance of comprehensive web activity management!

No one wants to see their employees wasting time on non job-related activities during paid work hours. Especially, we did see report from Economist, Oct 29th 2009 mentioned that employees in certain countries averagely spend almost one working week a year on Twitter, Facebook or other social-networking websites during office hours. Even worse than we thought, those activities could cause the leak of corporate confidential information.

 

Vigor2920 series have the right solution in place for SMB

CSM function of Vigor2920 series includes IM/P2P profile, URL Content Filter profile and Web Content Filter profile to manage web activities related to SMB daily operation. IM/P2P profile can not only block the usage of instant message and peer-to-peer applications but also  allow administrator to grant level of usage of certain IM applications. For example, you can allow your Sales Dept to login MSN and only use  message function to keep in touch with their clients. Nevertheless, they are not capable to transfer files, play game, watch video, do talk or  others via MSN as (figure 1).

URL Content Filter profile can use keyword feature to prevent access to unwanted pages or restrict features provided by browsing pages. For instance, you may not allow employees in Finance Dept to visit eBay for online shopping nor watching videos through web browsing. You can create one URL Content Filter profile as Finance Dept 1 and let URL Access Control not allow url containing eBay and Web feature not allow Video (example as figure 2).

Web Content Filter profile (WCF) have pre-grouped many web contents to ease setting process and Vigor2920 series’ WCF function is powered by Commtouch GlobalView WCF with powerful database to verify client-end’s requests. For example, you can limit Logistic Dept not to browse certain websites by selecting pre-defined contents in WCF profile. As figure 3 shown, they are now unable to access website with contents listed in Child Protection, Leisure and Other sections. Plus, you don’t want them to do job search during office hour, so you also block Job Search/Career in Business section.

Brief of DrayTek’s objects setting management:  

An object can be a singe IP address or a set of them, a service connection, or a user or calendar time.

All objects are then defined by the administrator form of usage within the rules of routers in security or quality of the service that allows
administrators set rules distinctively.
