The guest Wi-Fi network with captive portal allows our customers to monitor all HTTP and HTTPS activity within their network no matter what kind of unmanaged device is being used,” says Dennis McCabe, co-founder and President of Wavecrest Computing.
Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) July 19, 2016
Wavecrest Computing, a leading global provider of advanced Web-access security management and reporting solutions, today announced a new enhancement to its CyBlock Web Security Gateway solution, guest Wi-Fi network protection. Increasing management to guest devices connected to a business’s Wi-Fi network increases the overall security of the business.
Business today is conducted on many devices from many locations. The expectation of business guests, and even employees, is to have access to a public Wi-Fi connection within the business location. Now, businesses can offer this while protecting guest Wi-Fi users and company assets from situations such as compliance issues or legal liabilities.
CyBlock Web Security Gateway’s guest network offers an important captive portal feature which forces the user to at least look at, if not read, an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) page, and then click or tap a button indicating agreement to the terms of the policy. The captive portal also provides the ability to set day and time limits to the guest access, automatically expiring after a certain amount of time. IT administrators can track and report on guest account activity and have access to high-level usage and trend reports along with detailed reports to meet management requirements.
“We are consistently seeing companies have trouble managing the number of devices and access points being used within the enterprise. This trend will increase at an extremely rapid pace with the business environment becoming more agile and mobile. At Wavecrest, we are always looking ahead and listening to our customers’ pain points. The guest Wi-Fi network with captive portal allows our customers to monitor all HTTP and HTTPS activity within their network no matter what kind of unmanaged device is being used,” says Dennis McCabe, co-founder and President of Wavecrest Computing. “This ability is an exciting feature for us to offer our customers. This builds on Wavecrest’s focus to help protect the company’s assets from threats, such as data loss, malicious Web sites that may contain ransomware, Internet misuse, and more, no matter where the user is or what device they are using.”
CyBlock Web Security Gateway is a flexible, low-cost advanced threat protection hardware solution that filters and blocks guest Wi-Fi, malicious Web sites, IM, P2P, streaming, file sharing, and more for the Web-access security needs of any business size or type.
