Enterprises face heavy financial damage due to entry of viruses, malware, worms, Trojans, spyware, and more through malicious websites. Phishing, pharming and spyware may lead to theft of passwords, identity theft and loss of other confidential information. Indiscriminate Internet surfing by internal users leaves enterprises vulnerable to legal liabilities, besides loss of productivity. Unrestricted use of file-sharing applications like IM and P2P and multimedia downloads cause risk of data loss or leakage as well as bandwidth choking, draining the enterprise resources.

- Are your users accessing malware-laden sites?
- Or blocked IM, P2P applications through web proxies?
- Are your machines a part of malicious botnets?
- Is your bandwidth choked from MP3, video downloads?
