Stopping unauthorised surfing
GulfNet Solutions has announced an agreement to distribute Websense software that helps companies cut down on improper Internet use by employees.
Management of employees Internet usage can cause problems for many companies, as they try to balance providing reasonable access for work purposes with the need to restrict time wasting web surfing and visits to inappropriate sites. But software from Websense, now available in the region through GulfNet Solutions, can help restrict Internet usage to more appropriate task.
Saudi-based GulfNet has been appointed as distributor for Websense in the Kingdom, the UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and Egypt. The Websense Enterprise Software product range was introduced by GulfNet at the recent Arab e-Banking & Security Summit held in Dubai last week.
