Q: Why is WebHawk so inexpensive? Websense and Sonicwall profit margins range from 71% to 84% as reported in their 10K filings. Our business model does not require that we operate on such high gross margins. Webhawk is a great solution at a fair price.

Q: Do I need to install any software on my existing servers or workstations? No, WebHawk operates at a network level thus having no need to install software on individual pcs to filter.

Q: Can I buy WebHawk without any appliance? Yes, we offer .ISO of the software or a VMWare image as well.

Q: How does WebHawk know what websites to block as unacceptable? WebHawk monitors traffic as it's passed through it and will block/allow accordingly based on the created policies which can be linked to Active Directory User/Group or IP Address.
