— — Fullcast Holdings installed the web security product i-FILTER on approximately 3,000 computers at 198 locations across Japan, praising its ability to apply specific filters to different group companies and departments and user-friendly Japanese UI — —

Information security solutions provider Digital Arts Inc. (headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan; CEO: Toshio Dogu; hereinafter referred to as "Digital Arts"; Code 2326) is pleased to announce that on August 3, it released a case study of the introduction of the web security product i-FILTER by Fullcast Holdings Co., Ltd. (headquarters: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Kazuki Sakamaki).

i-FILTER installed on approximately 3,000 computers at 198 locations across Japan

 Fullcast Holdings Co., Ltd. is a comprehensive staffing company that provides various Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services that include "short-term placements," "temporary staffing," "temporary driver staffing," as well as other staffing-related services in line with the demands of the market and corporate needs. They also offer "payroll processing services" and "Individual Number collection and storage services" that work in tandem with their other services.

 At 198 locations throughout Japan, the company dispatches temporary day workers with a minimum of one day's notice. The company has over 7.77 million registered staff (as of the end of December, 2022) across Japan in a wide range of industries, from logistics and manufacturing to restaurants and office work.

 To keep the information of their 7.77 million registered staff safe, they have implemented a number of security measures. In order to prevent access to dangerous websites from email links and search engines, the company introduced the web security product i-FILTER Ver. 10 in 2022. In addition to preventing viewing harmful information and websites unrelated to business with its filtering feature, i-FILTER also prevents external attacks and internal information leaks. i-FILTER is being used on approximately 3,000 employee computers at 198 locations throughout Japan.

Utilizing i-FILTER's Whitelisting feature

 Fullcast Holdings has also been utilizing i-FILTER's Whitelisting feature. Whitelisting is a feature that blocks URLS, threatening websites, and fake company websites that have not been registered in the Digital Arts database and whose connection has not been deemed safe, only allowing access to websites that Digital Arts has determined to be safe.

 In addition to this feature, they have also been making use of category-based filters, black lists and white lists. i-FILTER also allows them to set filters based on the specific company or department and only allow specific departments to view certain content. They have also praised the user-friendly UI that is entirely in Japanese.

 In services where work and personal IDs are separate, i-FILTER can restrict the use of personal accounts. The company's email service only allows business accounts to log in, which is useful as a countermeasure against Shadow IT. They also utilize web service controls that restrict controls on a browser-by-browser basis, and also allow the use of online storage services for businesses. In order to prevent information leaks, they have blocked online storage services for individuals.

 In addition, they make use of the reporting feature that allows them to view reports on overall access trends and individual user trends, as well as access graph breakdowns of logs. Logs are checked when traffic increases, etc., and i-FILTER is used to analyze traffic as it shows a sortable list of websites that are being viewed.
