Users' monitoring and control
With UserGate, you can enforce as strict an Internet access policy as you want, to ensure that the Internet is used appropriately in your company. The integrated Entensys URL Filtering 2.0 module allows you to apply web filters, and helps boost employee productivity by giving you total control over what sites your employees can access. UserGate also includes an application filtering module that lets you allow or deny Internet access to network applications installed on client machines. User statistics are available in comprehensive reports directly accessible from within the program, or remotely via a web browser.
Internet traffic optimization
UserGate incorporates NAT and application-layer proxy capabilities and works as a point of entry to the Internet for a local network. You can share Internet access among employees in your company, use multiple ISPs, and manage traffic to avoid traffic congestion and make effective use of an existing Internet connection.
User-friendly deployment and administration
With DHCP server support, you can make UserGate dynamically assign IP-addresses in your local network. The resource publishing feature enables you to provide access to your company's internet resources from the outside.
