WebInsights for Smart Businesses - GFI WebMonitor

GFI WebMonitor’s latest feature, WebInsights enables IT administrators to analyze data in a historical and behavioral context. With WebInsights IT admins can create a baseline for web activity within a corporate environment and then use it as a single point of reference to analyze trends when monitoring and managing productivity, bandwidth and security.

Why do WebInsights make an IT admin’s life easier?

A historical behavior analysis engine helps IT admins to:

  • Understand the data in a historical context
  • Reduce costs by managing bandwidth-intensive websites and non-productive websites
  • Reduce downtime due to infected machines on the network by taking a proactive approach and blocking malicious and dangerous websites
  • Identify abnormal activity and detect:
    • Malware infections
    • Bandwidth hogs (caused by users or applications)
    • Internet abuse and report on productivity loss

A peak in the number of security issues reported may indicate that a computer has been compromised by malware. A peak in bandwidth or activity on non-productive websites may indicate the existence of unauthorized software or unauthorized activity which needs to be regulated. This information enables IT admins to maintain a healthy, productive and secure working environment by understanding what the data represents and adjusting policies accordingly.

Productivity Dashboard

Are there any productivity concerns? Have users spent more time browsing un-productive websites this week than in previous weeks or months? Who are the top users browsing unproductive websites?

Divider

Bandwidth Usage Dashboard

How much bandwidth is being used compared to your daily/weekly/monthly averages? Are there any abnormalities or usage spikes?

Divider

Security Dashboard

Are there more security concerns than usual? What is your average number of security incidents on a daily/weekly/monthly basis?

All these measurements are based on your company’s “normal” usage, so you can quickly identify and address any abnormal usage patterns. Once usage peaks are detected, the administrator can drill down and investigate further.
