Websites exist for anything from crocheting instructionals and sports to business templates and competitive insights.Typically organizations want employees to have access to many websites, but not all. Businesses may prefer to prevent visits to some websites for a number of reasons, though the strongest cases are to ensure productivity and security as well as prevent access to inappropriate websites.
