InterGate Intercept debuts
Vicomsoft today released a new module for its internet administration software that is blocking instant messaging programs, as well as internet telephony applications such as Skype. The new product--dubbed InterGate Intercept--is a module within the company's InterGate Policy Manager Suite, a set of applications designed to prevent unauthorized usage of the internet during working hours. The software can block peer-to-peer traffic such as eDonkey and the Gnutella network, as well as voice-over-IP traffic that evaded network security software in the past (system requirements and pricing were unavailable).
