    My co's setting this program up- I looked it up on the web- it's a specific 'where & when'
    of employee netsurfing montitoring.
    From the website:

    "After that, whenever an employee logs onto the Internet or the company intranet, surfCONTROL’s innovative packet-sniffing technology monitors, records, and manages Internet access … without slowing down your network.
    The result? You can see what your Internet access is being used for – and gain total control over who in your company can access the Internet … where they can and cannot go … and at what time of the day they can surf business related and non-business sites. So you can cut out nonsense. And get your employees back to work."

    So no more tribe or ebay or anything else non-work related at work for me soon.

    Anyone else hear about this?

    Well most company's have policies against surfing for "fun" ...

    I work for the Federal Government and when our users login they have a warning each and everytime.
    Any surfing of porn, illegal stuff, etc.. can result in termination.

    I'm a Network Admin so they've never bothered me, but I have seen people get fired because of porn surfing, etc..

    And don't forget my friend, Bandwidth = $$$
    It's not cheap for you to be looking at huge picture threads, etc...

    The average T1 costs a company anywhere from $400-1200 a month.

    or they can set up a proxy server that limits it to what "they" want you to see...but our network admins here are retards and it's very easy to get around [​IMG]
