GFI MAX has released a new version of GFI MAX RemoteManagement, which includes advanced web protection features based on GFI Software’s GFI WebMonitor solution. The new capabilities enable MSPs to extend their managed security portfolio by offering web security, web filtering, and web bandwidth monitoring services all from a single dashboard.

GFI MAX RemoteManagement’s Web Protection features include:

  • Web Security – MSPs can now stop clients’ end-users from accidentally visiting malicious websites that host malware, proxies, spyware, adware, botnets and spam, as well as websites designed to perform phishing attacks.
  • Web Filtering – MSPs can now enforce web-browsing policies designed specifically for the workplace through the use of whitelists and blacklists that complement category based filters. Web filtering policies also allow customers to protect themselves from legal liability and reduce the risk of a security breach by implementing proactive Internet access controls.
  • Bandwidth Monitoring – MSPs are alerted when there is excessive bandwidth activity on a client’s network so that they can identify the cause and address the situation. Internet activity can also be filtered by day, category, and URL to reveal trends, spikes, and irregularities that may be affecting productivity.

“The addition of web protection capabilities to our managed services platform delivers the most comprehensive integrated security toolbox in the industry, allowing our MSP partners to protect their customers’ networks and demonstrate their value as an all-in-one security resource,” says Richard Rundle, general manager, Asia Pacific at GFI Software. “By proactively managing client employees’ web access, MSPs can greatly reduce exposure to cyber attacks and the reporting capabilities that are available allow the MSP to showcase the full value of their managed security service offering by reporting on potential issues that were prevented before they could disrupt the client’s business.”
