ISP Viatel introduces Internet filtering service

Business ISP Viatel has announced the launch of its new web-filtering service for UK customers. Techworld reports that the product is based off ScanSafe's WebControl content security software:

The service redirects all corporate web traffic through its own dedicated servers and analyses it, before displaying the filtered content to the end-user. According to Viatel, WebControl can protect companies from risks such as spyware, web viruses, phishing and adware.

It can also block website and filter out traffic that a company doesn't want its staff to have access to, such as social-networking sites, video streaming or IM.

In addition, the ISP said that IT managers would be able use the service to obtain detailed metrics and insight into their company's web activity down to individual employee level, which would help them trace security breaches and enforce their web use policy.
