New offerings from the filtering company also provide enhanced controls on applications like instant messaging.

The Enterprise Threat Shield will maintain a database of known spyware threats and will have the ability to be updated to protect against custom threats.

Administration of the product would be centralized, and placement of the product at the corporate gateway, similar to a firewall, will help minimize the threat to user desktops.

Another feature of the product will allow administrators to create and enforce corporate policies on browser and other web-accessing applications. Logging features will show how long employees spend on certain web sites.

Pricing starts at $30 USD per user per year, per 100 users, with discounts for 1000 employees and up.
