New and Improved Employee Privacy Settings

How our products affect employee privacy is a topic of daily conversation at Mojave.  With each new feature, we ask ourselves how it will impact end-user privacy.  The end-user needs to trust the security product they use or otherwise they will ignore or subvert the product rendering the security product useless and leaving the company vulnerable.

With that in mind, we’ve released some subtle changes that are big in terms of privacy and the flexibility they give IT admins to create a privacy policy to match their employees’ needs.

Anonymous Mode

IT admins can now set two additional modes for data traffic.  In the anonymous mode, an administrator can see particular details of every network request (source, destination, bytes transferred, etc), but these details are not associated with individual employees.

Security Scanning

The security scanning mode is even more privacy friendly.  This mode does not log any network traffic details unless there is a security threat.  In addition, no analytics are collected either, ensuring complete privacy.  This mode is ideal for companies that want to block harmful threats from the web like phishing and malware, but want to keep all sensitive employee information private.

Both of these settings are configurable from the Privacy tab within Policies.

Of course, employees can view the latest privacy settings applied to them at any time through the Mojave Networks app.  If you have any suggestions on how we can better handle privacy, please let us know if the comments below.
