Q

Blocking employee Web surfing

How does a small company with five different offices and a private network give access to only the Web sites that are job related and block all other sites? What would be the best solution? Could full access be given to just one client or the clients used only by supervisors? Is this secure? Are there additional resources required?
I recommend a proxy agent on your firewalls. Even a small company should have a firewall, thus I'm sure you could use this resource. If necessary, you may need to install Web surfing tools as well. I know these are costly, but not as costly as losing critical private company business.
