What’s the Benefit of Content Filtering?

Wasting time is a big concern in any business, and this is one place where the Internet can potentially hurt as much as it helps. Of course, it does still help, as the Internet is where many of today’s business tools are accessed. How can you ensure that your team is spending their time working, rather than on social media or other distracting websites?

CTN has the answer in a content filtering solution. Let’s review what content filtering is, and how it can help maintain productivity.

So, What is Content Filtering?

Content filtering is pretty much what it sounds like: a solution that helps keep certain content off your network. Basically, it’s a form of access control that enables the content that you need to use, while blocking inappropriate and not-safe-for-work content from appearing.

This blocked content could seriously damage your business operations. First of all, there’s the lost productivity, of course, but other impacts can take hold as well. A threat that piggybacked in on something could easily create financial, legal, and cybersecurity issues. Therefore, by blocking content that hasn’t been officially approved, you can help minimize these risks.

Considerations for Your Content Filtering Solution

For your content filtering to be a resource to your team, you need to ensure that your content filtering is configured to meet their needs. What kind of content do you want to have filtered out, and for whom should these filters apply? Are you going to completely block all sites for everyone, or are certain departments going to have customized filters to account for their responsibilities? A social media manager will need access to social media. Should restrictions ever be relaxed? For example, will employees be able to use social media while they’re on lunch?

These considerations will be important to come to a final decision on, and the content filter you use should accommodate all the capabilities you need.
