Internet control (Weblook)


Internet control is one of the most commonly used up new features
Employees often use networks for private purposes during their work.
Thanks to the Weblook module,
you will be able to check what websites they visit and block access to the ones that divert attention from work and duties.
For the monitoring of websites to work, it is necessary to activate the UNF in the program options. You just choose the computers
that should be monitored and Statlook agents will take care of the configuration of the employee’s computers.
When you enable UNF option on computers with the agent, it installs an additional component responsible for monitoring browsers.
Enabling UNF helps you to monitor the websites visited, and to collect information about the use of the Internet.
But sometimes it is not enough to deal with cyberslacking (that is using Internet for non-work-related purposes).
When there is a page that you would like to block
When there is a page that you would like to block, you just find it on the list of visited sites and block it using the option from the context menu
The wizard will guide you through the process of blocking the access to the page.
You can also set scheduled blocking.
For example if employees have laptops, which they use after work for private purposes
you will be able to determine the time when the access should be blocked.
Let’s say, access to facebook during business hours.
Another thing that needs to be set is how a browser should behave if a user tries to view the banned page.
There are three options to choose from:
1) blocking access, that is, returning information that the site is not available
2) redirecting to another page (for example our company page) or
3) creating our own HTML template
The last step is to choose the employees to be affected by the new filter or select everyone in the company.
Now, refresh the page to check if the new configuration has already been downloaded by the agent.
Owing to statlook, the process of blocking access to unwanted websites is really simple and fast.
