Real-time Web filtering delivers safe and productive online experience for Johnstons of Elgin staff
Bloxx, the innovator in Web and Email content filtering, today announced that Johnstons of Elgin, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of quality cashmere garments, is using Bloxx Web filtering to dynamically manage and report on the Web browsing activity of over 300 employees. Now their staff has safe and secure access to business-related Web sites but are blocked from productivity draining non-business Web content such as gaming and blogging sites.
Kevin Di Sotto, IT Business Administrator at the company explains, “We realised that we didn’t have any control or visibility into what Web sites our staff were accessing during working hours and with the increasing use of the Internet within the company, we were concerned that this could have a significant impact on staff productivity. Additionally we were concerned that staff could accidently view inappropriate content that could expose the company to legal risk and liability.”
Bloxx Web filtering, powered by the patent-applied for Tru-View Technology real-time categorisation engine, is monitoring and reporting on all Web activity at the company, providing superior protection from inappropriate and productivity draining content. The company now have complete control over Web access based on users’ job function or workgroup. The company is using the Web Reporting application to ensure compliance with its Internet Access Policy and to investigate any policy breaches or staff productivity issues.
Di Sotto adds, “Installation was very straightforward. Ongoing management and maintenance of the solution is very easy and we are seeing significant reductions in our network bandwidth usage. The solution is highly reliable and we are delighted with the effective proactive Web filtering we provide to ensure a safe and productive online experience for our staff. Overall, we are 100% convinced that staff productivity has increased due to the controlled Web access we now deliver.”
