TalkTalk Business' WorkSafe solution is helping companies to improve their IT security, the firm has claimed.

Andy Lockwood, Product Delivery and Marketing Director at the broadband provider, said WorkSafe "takes the hassle and cost out of internet safety and security".

He described the solution as being a "free, proven way of protecting computer systems".

"Built into TalkTalk’s £600 million Next Generation Network, WorkSafe can be set to filter out offensive or dangerous material such as pornography, websites containing viruses or malicious software, and sites with violent content, across all devices using the business’ broadband connection," Mr Lockwood noted.

"Managers can also block access to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter at the click of a mouse, along with gambling and gaming websites."

He explained that WorkSafe is based on TalkTalk's HomeSafe service, which more than 730,000 British families already use to filter out inappropriate online content.

Mr Lockwood said the solution works by stopping access to lists of websites, which are updated all the time.

"Because this is done in the network, and not the clients’ computer, it does not slow down the internet connection and protects every device," he said.

Mr Lockwood claimed that WorkSafe is "just another example" of TalkTalk's commitment to help British businesses reduce costs and increase productivity.

"In recent research, we found that 65 per cent of small business owners recognised their computer networks were not secure enough, and worried their staff could be subjected to offensive material," he stated.
