How many of your Managed Services clients filter their web traffic? MSPs that aren’t offering web filtering services to clients are missing out on a viable income stream. Web filtering is an essential element in a well-constructed multi-layered security strategy. The following key findings from 2018 Spiceworks’ research highlight this:
The research clearly shows that larger companies (more than 1,000 users) implement stricter internet usage policies as a greater percentage of them block user access to many categories such as gambling, online dating, instant messaging and streaming. The end results substantiate this practice as only 28 percent of employees spend more than four hours per week on websites unrelated to their job, compared to 45 percent in mid-size businesses and 51 percent in small businesses.
While managing web activity for users is important to many organizations, security is the paramount concern and the primary reason to implement web filtering. Spiceworks’ research showed that 38 percent of organizations experienced one or more security incident originating from non-work-related sites over the course of twelve months. The most common security incidents involved personal webmail services (15 percent) and social media channels (11 percent). Obviously the lack of some type of web filtering policy increases a company’s vulnerability to cybersecurity threats.
Research shows that a web filtering solution pays for itself by preventing devastating cyber threats that constantly probe at your customers’ networks (as well as helping with worker productivity). So what type of web filtering solution should you choose for your customers? When it comes to MSP’s, the best choice is a DNS-Layer Filtering solution.
Providing web filtering as a service for clients does not have to be complicated and labor-intensive with minimal net margins for MSPs. It’s now possible to seamlessly incorporate a suitable and cost-effective web content filter for MSPs into existing client packages, as well as to attract new business from companies seeking a fully managed Internet content filtering and Wi-Fi security product.
