GFI Adds New Security Features to WebMonitor

The software developer adds new capabilities that improve the ability of SMB IT administrators to control Internet access and identify malicious websites and infected content.

The software developer adds new capabilities that improve the ability of SMB IT administrators to control Internet access and identify malicious websites and infected content.

New security and anti-malware features have been added to GFI Software‘s popular GFI WebMonitor product. †

GFI Adds New Security Features to WebMonitor  The new security features of the software, combined with its detection and filtering capabilities, are designed to enable SMB IT administrators to control Internet access and identify malicious websites and infected content.

“With powerful security enhancements, including a new Website Reputation Index and GFI ThreatTrack malicious URL blocking, the latest version of GFI WebMonitor has evolved into one of the industry’s most complete web monitoring, filtering, and security solutions,” states GFI in a press release submitted to Channel Pro-SMB.

The Website Reputation Index feature provides a “safeness” rating for websites based on their current and future threat profiles. Using this feature, administrators can implement flexible Internet access policies by blocking sites based on the risks they pose, and employees can make smarter decisions about visiting websites with which they are not familiar.

With ThreatTrack, GFI WebMonitor automatically blacklists hundreds of thousands of websites serving malicious content, including phishing sites and legitimate websites that have been temporarily compromised. ThreatTrack data feeds provide SMBs with valuable threat intelligence that, when combined with GFI WebMonitor, results in an unrivaled Internet access control solution.

Other new WebMonitor features include:

  • Multiple Security Engines†– Multiple antivirus and security engines that scan Internet traffic for malicious content.†
  • Zero-Hour Web Security†– Real-time updating of security engines.
  • Streaming Media Blocking†– Enables the blocking of bandwidth-consuming audio and video streaming.
  • Instant Messaging Management†– Blocks messaging clients, including Google Chat, Facebook Chat, and others.
  • Soft Blocking — Defines policies selectively, enabling certain users or groups to override blocking policies.
