QED Connect, a software-as-a-service provider for the information security market, has announced that the Washington DC Examiner, a daily newspaper and part of The Examiner group of publications, is utilizing its flagship Omni Manager product for internet visibility, management and control.
Omni Manager provides the Examiner with tools and technologies to centrally monitor employee activity and enforce acceptable policies on over 250 of the newspaper’s computer terminals.
Mark Rendle, director of IT operations for the Examiner, said: We have been very impressed with Omni Manager’s capabilities. It has enabled us to centrally create, manage and enforce organizational security and use policies for our PCs from one web-based console. Omni Manager has increased business productivity by reducing the amount of time people spend surfing non-work related Internet sites such as shopping or music, which is a critical issue for any business. An innovative feature also enables us to keep track of any unauthorized software applications being downloaded onto the computers, which is both a productivity and security concern.
