Your employees need Internet access for a myriad of reasons, both business and personal. Does that mean your organization must leave the gates to the Internet wide open to ensure productivity and a fat bottom-line? If you do, those networks become ripe targets for industrial espionage and cybercriminals looking for an easy payday. Many network security professionals will say the most cost-effective and least obtrusive method for securing the INSIDE of your perimeter is a robust authenticating web proxy.
Focal Point is an authenticating proxy service - one of the most effective ways to protect network assets from insider threats. Built around the Squid caching web proxy and bundled with ASI’s automated blacklist/whitelist module, Focal Point gives the network manager the means to control what leaves the network, what applications reach outside the perimeter, and where users browse.
