Website Blocking for Productivity and Security

Organizations want employees to have access to many websites, but not all. You may want to prevent visits to some websites for a number of reasons including ensuring productivity and security as well as preventing access to inappropriate websites.

Block Unproductive Websites

Websites can be both productive and unproductive depending on who is using them. Marketing managers may spend a lot of time on Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media outlets while business analysts may spend the majority of their time on other websites that reflect their role. 

  • Block any number of websites you deem unproductive such as gambling, gaming &/or online dating 
  • Determine who should have access to which sites, and set up groups to block websites accordingly.

Defend against Malware

The distribution of malware and cyber attacks are examples of threats that make visiting various sites extremely dangerous. One way to make your cybersecurity more robust is to block access to risky websites. Though you can’t know of every single dangerous site, you can be proactive by using ActivTrak to block access to the ones you know have the potential to do harm.
