How a Content Filter Can Become Complicated

How a Content Filter Can Become Complicated

So, as the boss, you’re concerned about your employees wasting time, especially on the Internet. However, you can’t exactly keep them off the Internet, as that’s where their work is done. With distractions like social media, streaming, and literally everything else out there to draw their attention away, how can you hope to compete?

Well, with Data Net helping you out, you’ll have content filtering on your side. Let’s discuss what content filtering is, and how it can help you.

First Things First: What is Content Filtering?

Content filtering is exactly what it says on the box: it is a filter that keeps out content.

More specifically, content filtering is a solution that allows you some level of control over what your network can be used to access. The internet is a great resource for business purposes, but it is just as good of a resource for plenty of other, not-safe-for-work content.

This other content could foreseeably have any of various negative impacts in the office. Lost productivity would be the most apparent impact, of course, but there are additional consequences to consider as well. One of your employees accessing the wrong thing could bring financial and legal issues to your doorstep or invite in a cyberthreat to wreak havoc.

No, it is better to have the tools in place that can keep content that doesn’t meet your prescribed parameters out, so that the content that does need to be accessed is unhindered.

What to Look For in a Content Filtering Solution

There are assorted considerations to be made when it comes to your content filtering. First off, what is it that you need to be filtered out, and does that apply to the whole group, or just to certain departments and individuals? Whoever it is that handles your business’ social media needs to have access to social media, after all.

You also need to know if there are any times that these restrictions should be relaxed. Many people may want to check social media on their lunch hour, for instance, so will that be allowed?

There are going to be a lot of variables to consider moving forward, so finding a filter that helps you balance them will be crucial.
