Network World's annual "Fave Raves" slideshow showcases today's top networking products. Products are chosen based on feedback from select group of IT professionals who are asked to name their favorite products, which save time or money, increase productivity or tighten security. Executech President Eric Montague participated in the review and raved about the recently released SecureSurf solution with end-user agent.

"I like how I can install the agent on individual machines to ensure those machines are configured for the most accurate website traffic evaluation, even if a user is working remotely or through a non-corporate network," said Montague, in the review. "Plus, I appreciate the machine-by-machine reporting of Web surfing activities."

AppRiver's SecureSurf is a web protection service that combines the best elements of DNS and proxy technology to combat today's most sophisticated attacks. It is an easy-to-deploy hosted solution that does not inhibit Web surfing and safeguards users against malicious sites, viruses, inappropriate content or anything else that might violate company policies. SecureSurf also allows companies to establish thorough Web surfing policies, monitor Web usage and create whitelists of known good sites. Machine-by-machine reporting of Web surfing activities can also enforce safe searching functionality on Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask search engines.

SecureSurf customers can install the agent on individual machines to ensure each machine is configured for the most accurate website traffic evaluation, even if a user is working remotely or through a non-corporate network. Many public hotspots intercept DNS and/or re-proxy Web traffic, which typically negates traditional Web security products. The SecureSurf agent was specifically designed and tested to guarantee Web protection and policies remain active in such harsh environments.
