|GFI is offering a
free five-user version of its Internet access control tool, LANguard. LANguard ensures
productive use of the Internet, monitors internal traffic for threats, and helps secure
the network against authorised access. LANguard also includes a revolutionary feature that
can prevent web searches for specified words and phrases.
LANguard enables a company to monitor Internet use on its network and allows the company
to block types of external traffic or specific sites that it deems non-productive. This
way, through LANguard an organisation can set up its own network policy and block types of
traffic (e.g., IRC, FTP) as well as preventing access to specific sites.
LANguard also helps protect against internal security threats, such as users accessing
confidential data and hacking into shares to which entry is barred. LANguard shows the
security administrator which users are accessing specific shares on PCs so that users who
have cracked some elses password can quickly be detected. It also helps to block all
TCP/IP external traffic from the Internet and helps protect the network from electronic
break-ins, penetration attacks, hackers and other threats.
