Up to 80 percent of employees’ time on the Internet each day has nothing to do with work. It’s unrealistic to completely cut it out – we all know breaks are necessary to recharge our battery. But, how much is too much?

Today, we announced the newest version of the WatchGuard Fireware® OS (11.10), which makes it easy to control the amount of data and time employees spend surfing the web. After all, we want our employees to be productive (and happy). It also allows IT pros to set website policies using names not numbers – 216.176.177.72 is now http://icanhas.cheezburger.com/. More so, the new “wildcard” function enables network admins to cover multiple domains with one policy, in turn making your team more efficient.

The new Fireware OS is available for all WatchGuard XTM and Firebox appliances, and is available starting in April 2015. For complete feature information please click here.

Below is a fun infographic that highlights some of the cyberloafing your employees are doing. Control it now with Fireware OS 11.10.
