Burstek Web Extra Report

Litigation, Regulation, Compliance, Security, and Productivity present major challenges in today's Web enabled environment when network abuse is increasing at an alarming rate. Organizational exposure is greater than ever so you need a proven technology against all emerging threats.

The Internet is very dynamic changing from second to second; new sites are added, old sites are removed. It's imperative that your Control List is both as relevant and accurate as possible.

No Control List is 100%, however, realizing that major decisions are often made on LogAnalyzer reports, Burstek is committed to making it as accurate and up to date as possible by utilizing proprietary technology and a dedicated team of Control List technicians. Another invaluable method is customer input. We have designed a Web Extra report which identifies uncategorized Web activity. It's safe - no proprietary information is released from your company. Our Control List technicians will review all Web Extras and make necessary changes/updates to the URL database immediately. Daily uploads are available for our customers.

Localize your Control List and run a Web Extra report.

  3. Populate the already created intranet and local categories by entering the appropriate masks.
