WorldSecure Web Monitors 'Net Use
Worldtalk Corp. says its WorldSecure/Web service enables law firms and other organizations to define and enforce Web usage policies, thus reducing security risks and corporate liability.
"We believe the key to Web and e-mail security is policy management and enforcement," says Simon Khalaf, co-founder of Worldtalk.
The server-based system, which integrates with WorldSecure/Mail, allows firms to filter content, both on browsed and submitted data; detect malicious mobile code (Java and Active/X); find viruses; and block Web sites, says the company, headquartered in Santa Clara, Calif.
Organizations can use the system to manage employee policies, such as restricting staff access to offensive or inappropriate Web sites, says Worldtalk.
The program enables firms to monitor and protect information assets and intellectual property, explains Worldtalk. For example, the system can prevent improper posts on Internet message boards, it says.
Using WorldSecure/Web, administrators also can generate detailed reports on Web usage on a per user, department or organization-wide basis, says Worldtalk.
