HPE Small Business Solutions: Don’t let your payroll go to cat videos

Keep your digital doors locked with HPE Small Business Solutions for Unified Threat Management to protect small business servers from malware, viruses, and phishing scams.Blog_Content_Filtering_GIF_400x267.gif

When you’re running a small business, you need everyone to work at peak productivity. A coffee break now and then is great for morale, but would you look the other way if nearly 20% of your employees were lounging around the break room for an hour or two every day? Probably not. But one in 10 employees admits to spending an hour a day on social media when they are supposed to be working. And another 10% admits to spending two hours or more on social media every workday.[1] In an average ten-person office, that would add up to 24 hours of payroll spent watching cat videos and the like. Yikes!

HPE Small Business Solutions for Unified Threat Management (UTM) with ClearOS can help save employees from themselves and save your payroll dollars from going to waste. These solutions start with simple, affordable HPE ProLiant servers, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors. They’re tested and validated to run the ClearOS™ operating system.

Customize your server, safeguard security and employee productivity

Running ClearOS on an HPE ProLiant server allows you to customize your server with just a few clicks, to filter and block time‑wasting apps, sites, and services so you and your team can be as productive as possible. You can filter distracting content with ClearOS Marketplace apps like Application Filter, Protocol Filter, Web Content Filtering System, and more.

For businesses that want total control over content and the next-generation of protection from malware, viruses, ransomware, or compromised IoT devices like Smart TVs, webcams, DVRs, ClearOS offers its Gateway.Management app in the ClearOS Marketplace. The app uses a Zero-trust Model to block all traffic as a default then uses advanced Machine Learning-based Whitelisting combined with Egress Control to control incoming and outgoing requests.

Best of all, there are no upfront costs for the OS. Pay just for the apps and ClearOS subscription services you need.[2]  HPE Small Business Solutions for Unified Threat Management with ClearOS give you a cost-effective, easy-to-manage, and secure solution with advanced content filtering features that allow you to safeguard employee productivity.
