GFI WEB MONITOR
Monitor and control web activity
Uncontrolled web activity can impact productivity, lead to malware infections, increase costs and potential legal liabilities, as well as a bruised company image. GFI WebMonitor delivers unique web filtering capabilities by combining application-based traffic filtering with a website categorization functionality. Together they allow accurate control over what users are doing online and the applications they are using.
Manage bandwidth and internet usage
Browsing websites like YouTube® and spending time on social media sites like Facebook can take up a huge chunk of bandwidth. GFI WebMonitor’s bandwidth control capabilities help administrators manage how that bandwidth is utilized and, in turn, reduce costs. Intuitive dashboards give a clear, detailed picture of how much bandwidth goes into productive activities, and how much of it is wasted on fruitless browsing. Then take full control over how it should be used.
Secure downloads and web browsing
Protecting the network against web-based threats is a major challenge for IT and security admins. Ignoring the dangers of online activity can lead to malware infections or data breaches. As a result organizations could incur heavy costs, poor productivity, downtime, compromised business-critical information and increased IT costs to repair the damage.

Ever caught yourself working late at the office thinking “if only I could access my work machine from home I would be there now?” Ever been on the road with your laptop wishing you could access company files, even print out documents on your company printer? Do you have a need to securely transfer files from one place to another, without people having to learn how to use complex file transfer applications?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you could be in need of a Virtual Private Networking (VPN) solution. VPN solutions have been available for some time, but up until now, you had to be a networking genius to make it work.
Now there is a VPN solution that anyone can use.
When we were designing WinGate VPN, we looked around at a number of other products. Most were very difficult even for us to set up, let alone someone who isn’t a network expert. We decided that most of the configuration of a VPN shouldn’t have to be such a burden, and should be done automatically. Most people just want the thing to actually work, and be able to trust it. Yet they don’t want to sacrifice flexibility or features either.
In a very short space of time, WinGate VPN allows you to connect your networks together, whether they be office LANs, or a home PC, or a laptop on a modem, so they can share data safely and securely. Using state of the art security protocols and tunnelling technologies, WinGate VPN will make sure that you can participate in a remote network, almost as easily as if you were plugged into the same hub. Depending on individual set up, users can access common local area networking features such as file and directory exploring, mapping drives and even participation in LAN games.
Easy to set up
Whether you are running WinGate VPN as a stand-alone system, or integrated with an existing WinGate installation, WinGate VPN is one of the most easily configured virtual private networking products available today. Set up in a matter of minutes, WinGate VPN can utilize most Internet connection types such as modems, wireless, ISDN or ADSL to create a secure private networking environment across the Internet. It will even work through your corporate firewall or NAT/DSL router or both!
Since you will be connected to the Internet, WinGate VPN also comes with a built-in firewall to protect each end-point of the VPN. WinGate VPN also comes complete with real time monitoring, showing details of all VPN connections that are in progress, and the current status of the VPN tunnels. With a point and click style Network window, administrators have total control over each part of the communication process, and can easily check that the VPN is operating properly at a moments notice.
Extra support for MS Networking
WinGate VPN makes it easier to browse using network neighbourhood across your VPN without having to set up and configure expensive MS server platforms or WINS servers. UDP relay broadcasting makes all your networks look like they are on the same physical network segment.
WinGate VPN uses industry-standard and trusted SSL connections and X.509 certificates to connect and validate your VPN users. It uses 128 bit Twofish-encrypted data tunnels to provide the security and speed you want. With various licensing options for different networking structures WinGate offers the flexibility you require.
- Companies who need secure inter-office networking.
- Home users who wish to set up a secure peer-to-peer connection between remote PCs.

Internet Access Monitor
Internet Access Monitor is a software product for monitoring the efficiency of the internet bandwidth usage by your company’s employees. With Internet Access Monitor you can easily find out which employees load up the bandwidth most heavily, when and what exactly they download, how much time they spend online, and what data transfer traffic they create.
Internet Access Monitor benefits:
- allows centralized monitoring of your employees’ internet access
- prevents personal usage of corporate bandwidth
- reduces your internet expenses
- extremely easy-to-use; can start monitoring users in a just a few minutes once the installation is complete
- works with all modern proxy servers
- allows the generation of a great number of reports and diagrams which display the efficiency of your company’s proxy server usage
- has a task scheduler to automate the creation and delivery of reports to authorized personnel
How the program works
Internet Access Monitor is a comprehensive internet use monitoring and reporting utility for corporate networks. The program takes advantage of the fact that most corporations provide internet access through proxy servers, such as MS ISA Server, MS Forefront TMG, WinGate, WinRoute, MS Proxy, WinProxy, EServ, Squid, Proxy Plus, and others. Each time a user accesses any website, or downloads files or images, these actions are logged. Internet Access Monitor processes these log files to offer system administrators a wide range of report-building options. The program can build reports for individual users, showing the list of websites visited, along with detailed classification of internet activity (downloading, reading text, viewing pictures, watching movies, listening to music, working). Plus, the program can create comprehensive reports with analysis of overall bandwidth consumption, building easy-to-comprehend visual charts that indicate the areas where wasteful bandwidth consumption may be eliminated.

Beat the bandwidth drain
Keep your company safe from security breaches, legal liability and costly virus clean-ups by blocking malicious websites and receiving alerts about bandwidth consumption. Video chats, streaming media and continual content downloads increase the drain on company bandwidth. If done in excess, these bandwidth-hogging actions can bring business operations to a crawl. Stay on top of bandwidth usage with alerts when devices exceed thresholds so you can quickly take action to avoid unwanted costs or a throttled network.
