In today’s digitally dependent environment, just about every organization has become increasingly reliant on websites. Employees have become used to casually surfing the web, researching reference materials, chatting with friends and downloading files without always considering possible Internet security threats.
What web surfers might not realize is that without proper URL filtering, the dynamic nature of the Internet can turn a site that is safe today into a threat tomorrow, the next week or even in a matter of seconds.
