Exton, PA (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Pearl Software has announced it will unveil Website.Echo version 11, which has been optimized for use with the new Microsoft Windows 8 operating system.
The new Web monitoring and filtering product will contain the same comprehensive features as its predecessor, version 10, but specific additions have been made that will let it function optimally across networks running the new Windows platform.
“The ability to monitor employee use of the Internet, including IM, chat and e-mail, is critical for many companies,” said Pearl Software CTO, Joe Field. “As these companies begin using the newest version of Windows, we want to provide an upgrade that will allow them seamless continuity in performing their Internet monitoring functions.”
Website.Echo provides customizable controls that allow network administrators to track and control the way employees are using the Internet while at work. It can deny access to specified websites or domains, target search keywords from a blacklist and exempt select websites from blockage.
It also monitors the way employees use communications tools in order to prevent harassment and abuse among the users of the network and to keep productivity at higher levels. Website.Echo performs filtering on all managed machines, not just those on the network.
Pearl expects to make the Website.Echo upgrade available to its customers sometime in late February.
