Enable Web Content Filtering with Business Computer Maintenance from NobleNetworks

Business Computer Maintenance
1/4/2018

As a provider of business computer maintenance, the team at NobleNetworks hears about it all the time: work computers being used for unproductive, inappropriate, or dangerous things. Whether your employees are viewing adult material, scanning their social media accounts, or playing online games, it doesn’t only eat up their time, it costs you money and puts your network at risk. To solve this issue, NobleNetworks can help you set up web content filtering, which helps to filter out inappropriate sites while still allowing your staff to view the websites that they need in order to do their jobs. In today’s post, we’re going to look at three benefits to implementing web filtering at your business.

Increased productivity

It’s estimated that nearly 40% of all workers surf the Internet while on the job… and this self-reported statistic only includes employees viewing sites that are not related to their job duties. Can you imagine how much time is being wasted? Web filtering can help you reclaim this time – time that you are paying for – by limiting access to unrelated, unproductive websites.

Reduce liability

Did you know that you can be held liable for the websites that your employees visit? If you have an employee who is viewing adult material at work, they could expose that content to other, unwilling staff members. This, in turn, could open your company up to lawsuits for sexual harassment or creating a hostile work environment. Web content filtering gives you peace of mind, allowing you to be certain that you’re not leaving yourself open to these kinds of lawsuits.

Limit social media

Without a doubt, social media is one of the leading culprits when it comes to wasting time at work. With the ability to limit your employees’ access to these sites, web filtering allows you to refocus their efforts toward more productive – and more profitable – endeavors.
