While we are all away from the office, the ability to easily measure productivity from the Censornet dashboard is great.

This also means we are able to audit outgoing communications to ensure no information is leaving the business that shouldn’t, and follow up if any suspicious requests are made. From an inbox perspective this means the correct categorisation of emails, and a huge reduction in spam making it to employees, which is great news for our staff who can now actually trust what’s coming in.
