iSecure Protector Enterprise 2017 , designed for business networks, monitors all employee computers in real time, through a centralized cloud-based monitoring tool that is protected by a 5-Factor Authentication (username, biometric signature, device, dynamic device token, and GEO location) as well as dynamic PKI encrypted communication. The Administrator can block any ISP/IP Address that appears, either for a particular computer and/or for all connected computers; and is being alerted ,via email and sms, of any attempt by an employee to remove a blocked IP addresses .

iSecure Protector Enterprise Edition 2017 is specifically designed to protect business Linux and Windows servers. Hackers are constantly coming up with new tools to infiltrate servers and steal corporate data . Leaving any cloud based server connection open for future access is inviting hackers to come in . iSecure Protector Enterprise Edition actively monitors both incoming and outgoing network data , opens remote connectivity to specific IP addresses when required and closes remote connectivity when not in use. With advance keyword filtering, the Administrator can also block all connections originating from specific regions (city, country), ISPs, and domains.
