GFI Software Introduces Redesigned GFI WebMonitor 2015

GFI Software announced the availability of GFI WebMonitor(R) 2015, the latest and most powerful version of the company's Web filter, management and security solution for businesses. GFI WebMonitor 2015 underscores the company's continued dedication to enabling IT admins to monitor, manage and secure information and data from the Internet to protect their business infrastructures. GFI completely redesigned the platform's graphical interface so users can manage social media use and other online applications without compromising the security needed to protect an organization from malware infections, data loss, time wastage, bandwidth misuse, compliance retention and more. With operating speed now three times faster, GFI WebMonitor 2015 limits employee access to selected sites, enabling IT admins to control access without completely blocking users unless it becomes necessary. IT admins can create rules for these scenarios as GFI WebMonitor can also restrict access based on employee bandwidth usage or length of time spent on a site. In addition, with security becoming a greater concern for organizations of all sizes, GFI WebMonitor 2015 features the unique ability to scan Internet traffic with not one, but three anti-virus engines. New enhancements to GFI WebMonitor 2015 include: Control for Applications Using Web Protocols - The latest version of GFI WebMonitor applies techniques based on signature pattern matching, conversational semantics, deep protocol dissection, heuristical analysis, flow awareness and association engines as well as statistical inspection beyond previous versions. These improvements enable laser-focused detection and management of more than 1,000 web applications available; Complete Anti-virus and Malicious URL Detection - GFI WebMonitor now features the most comprehensive anti-virus and malicious URL detection capabilities on the market. Web-based malware detection is now powered by three anti-virus engines, more than any other web management and security tool available. Two malicious URL detection engines also make WebMonitor 2015 the most comprehensive internet security solution on the market; Performance Upgrade - GFI WebMonitor's engine has been completely re-written, enabling x64 compilation for greater scalability, improved memory management, faster processing and scalability. No matter how many seats an organization requires - whether it is 10,500 or 1,000 - WebMonitor scales and delivers robust web protection capabilities; New User Interface - GFI WebMonitor's completely revamped interface delivers improved visibility into user activity as well as the product's status, allowing faster and easier product-task execution and a significantly improved experience. A new main dashboard showing real-time data has been added while the existing drill-down dashboards benefit from a new and more intuitive filtering interface. All aspects of the interface contain layout and performance updates; and Unified Policy Configuration and Management - A new policy engine allows for configuration of web filtering and web security policies in the same logic, greatly reducing the time and amount of actions required to build and maintain effective product configurations. GFI WebMonitor 2015 is available immediately and works in both physical and virtual environments. WebMonitor provides complete web filtering, management and security capabilities from a single, intuitive interface. Pricing is USD 31 or GBP 21 per user for one year (for 100-249 users).
