Red Earth Software releases Policy Patrol Web for Microsoft ISA Server
Portsmouth, NH June 3, 2005 Red Earth Software, developer of content security software, today announced the release of Policy Patrol Web 1.0 for Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server. By allowing companies to create flexible, user-based content filtering rules, Policy Patrol Web helps companies manage their Internet resources according to each of their user’s needs. In this way, companies can optimize Internet resources, avoid lost productivity and protect against legal liability and damage to reputation.
“With workplace Internet abuse on the rise, Policy Patrol Web is a must for every company that provides their employees with access to the Internet,” said Mike Spykerman, CEO of Red Earth Software. “Inappropriate web surfing during working hours poses a serious drain on productivity, not to mention the possible legal issues and damage to reputation it may cause. Without a flexible Internet filter, companies are forced to apply strict Internet usage rules that may not be appropriate for all users and can negatively impact productivity. Policy Patrol Web now provides companies with a tool to allow web usage according to each user’s needs”.
About Policy Patrol Web
Policy Patrol Web integrates closely with ISA Server 2000 & 2004 and performs URL checking, keyword filtering, file checking, virus & spyware blocking and real-time monitoring. In addition it enables companies to create URL categories and apply user quotas to these categories. This provides companies with the flexibility to allow personal browsing up to a controlled time or bandwidth limit. For instance with Policy Patrol Web companies can allow up to 5 minutes browsing on sports and news websites each day. Policy Patrol Web also offers black listing and white listing of URLs. White listing, as opposed to black listing, enables companies to configure a list of URLs that users are exclusively allowed access to. A 30-day evaluation version is available from http://www.policypatrol.com.
