TCG CORPORATE

Invest in Productivity

Whilst it is accepted that the use of the Internet is a necessary part of the working day for the many employees, visiting non work related content should be restricted to the employees own time.

This will increase productivity, provide a safer work environment and educate employees on acceptable use of the internet in the workplace.

Risk to Your Organisation

  • Sexual harassmentAn employee viewing pornography at work puts the company at risk if another employee sees something offensive. The employer has a duty of care to ensure that the workplace is safe environment in all respects for all employees.
  • Illegal activityThe downloading of certain material in some countries may be breaking the law. Organisations can be held responsible if an employee accesses, distributes illegal information or uses that information to commit a crime.
  • Downloading of malicious filesThe indiscriminate downloading of files from the internet can introduce a whole host of potential security issues for the company. Viruses, phishing and malicious files can be downloaded by employees intentionally or accidentally.

TCG Safe Search

Keeping it Clean

TCG Safe Search is for families and individuals that wish to search the net without accidentally stumbling across offensive websites. The open internet, though a vast resource of knowledge, has sites and images most of us would prefer not to see. Popular search engines employ their own version of safe search but because this is based on filtering technology, inappropriate sites and images can slip through the filter, even when innocent search terms are entered.

When you search with TCG Safe Search, you have confidence that your innocent key word searches will only bring up results from our clean internet feed. We’ve already checked and cleared tens of millions of safe sites and scan them regularly to ensure that your surfing experience is a good one. TCG Safe Search is simple to use and free. Just click here and go to www.tcgsafesearch.com and select it as your home page

Since inception the internet has been dominated by the English language with respect to content. In the last few years there has been a growing desire in the non-English world to encourage and promote local language and cultural content. TCG has customised its search algorithms to enable promotion of local content in an individual country or region.

Features

  • No download necessary
  • Does not slow down the internet
  • Multi-lingual and Multi-cultural
  • Prioritises local language sites
  • No inappropriate advertising

TCG takes your surfing experience seriously.Whilst we believe the TCG Safe Search engine is safer than search engines utilising filters, no system is 100% fool-proof. TCG still strongly promotes parental supervision when children are using the internet.

Parental control software to block all undesirable sites

AMMAN — A software programme to be available for Internet users by the end of October, will not only enable parents to deny their children access to pornographic websites but also those promoting gambling or containing undesirable content. The UN-approved software, which was developed by Australian company TCG and given to the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology, is also expected to reduce the level of cyber crime in Jordan as it gives web users access to "clean Internet" and prevents access to websites that contain viruses, Trojans and other types of malicious software.
