Millions of businesses heavily rely on the internet for their daily tasks as well as information. The internet has become an integral part of our lives and serves as a ready source of accurate and authentic information.
However, browsing the web also carries its own risks and vulnerabilities. According to an estimate, nearly 18.5 million websites are infected with malware at any given time. So, it is quite possible that you, or one of your employees may run into one such website.
Then, there is also the issue of your employees indulging in unnecessary web browsing activities, which distracts them and also affects productivity. Browsing the web has both cyber risks and productivity concerns attached to it.
