Internet Issues in the Public Sector

Public authorities now host a wide variety of users including employees, adult and juvenile library visitors, schools, museums ...

The wide variety of people who connect to the Internet generates many issues that complicate the task of controlling Internet access.  Managing both the technical solution and a company’s legal responsibilities, especially for minors, is the key to controlling these issues. 

Needs of the Public Sector

  • Comply with the laws of the country as they develop and evolve. 
  • Manage the different user groups and apply an appropriate filter adapted to their unique profile. Public authorities have the obligation to filter a broad range of potential Internet users: employees, minors, library students, museum visitors, etc.,.....and all must be filtered according to their age, function, etc.
  • Adapt user’s surfing so as not to saturate bandwidth.  Internet usage for an employee will be different from that of a student, which is why it is important for public authorities to have the tools to prioritize business content relative to personal content.
  • Authenticate, log data connections and filter users in public spaces so as to comply with the country’s legal and regulatory requirements. 
  • Protect the IT system from localized attacks, otherwise the consequences can be significant.
