As you know, the internet is a vital resource for all organisations. Like any resource, it needs careful management, especially in today's online environment. Organisations are faced with a number of issues when providing internet access, including cost, productivity, bandwidth limitations, and legal duty of care. Many organisations declare an Acceptable Use Policy without an effective means of implementation. LiveStream 5 solves this problem by providing a cost-effective, easy-to-use, and reliable web access management solution.

LiveStream 5 affords organisations the ability to enforce their internet usage policies, while reducing the real costs of providing internet access. LiveStream 5 provides a comprehensive set of features within a single, elegant, browser-based interface that can be easily administered by anyone who is responsible for an organisation's internet access management.

The key benefits of LiveStream 5 include:
