Websense Web Filter allows businesses to analyze, manage, and report on employee access to the internet and other network-based applications such as instant messaging, peer-to-peer, and streaming media. Websense Web Filter is a Microsoft Certified Partner and has been put through rigorous third-party testing in order to enable deployment of filtering functionality with your existing firewall infrastructure.
