The US Department of Justice has been using Cyfin Reporter Internet monitoring software since June 2002 to monitor Web access for their 100,000 users. They recently renewed their product license with Wavecrest Computing once again for the sixth year.

Before initially purchasing Cyfin Reporter in 2002, the DOJ conducted rigorous testing to ensure the product's scalability, accuracy, and reliability. Cyfin Reporter proved it could easily handle the DOJ's workload and continues to do so today while providing them with accurate Web-use reports. The fact that the Department of Justice has renewed their Cyfin Reporter software license for the last six years is a testament to the product's accuracy and reliability.

Wavecrest Computing's accurate Web-use reports are what distinguish their Internet monitoring and filtering software from the competition. Wavecrest Computing ensures accuracy in reports by differentiating between a user's specific click actions from automatically downloaded hits (banners, ads, audio, etc.) that can distort measurements of users' online activity.

Wavecrest's reports also focus closely on the number of clicks instead of attempting to gauge the amount of time a user actually spent on a Web page. The latter can be very misleading, i.e., the fact that a user downloaded a Web page to a browser doesn't necessarily mean that he or she was actually looking at that page while it was "open." The user could have easily been interrupted or left their browser open while attending a meeting. This makes accurate "time on site" measurements virtually impossible.

"When using employee Web-use reports to make important decisions regarding personnel and Internet policy, organizations want to know that they are using an Internet monitoring solution that provides reliable data in its reports," states Dennis McCabe, VP of Business Development. "Through accurate reporting, our products help organizations effectively implement and enforce Internet policies, improve workforce productivity and limit potential legal exposure from inappropriate Internet use."

For 11 years, Wavecrest Computing has been providing Internet filtering and monitoring solutions to business, government, and educational organizations worldwide. Wavecrest's customer base includes well-known names such as the Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center, Procter and Gamble, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, Miller Brewing Company, London Stock Exchange, Mazda, Bayer, Pepsi Cola, IBM and many others. For government agencies, Wavecrest software can be purchased through GSA as the company is a GSA Federal Supply Schedule Contractor (#GS35F0212L).
