The Virtual Risk

The convenience of the Internet has fundamentally changed the way we think about commerce and the purchase of goods and services.

With virtual sales exponentially growing, countries around the world are beginning to see the effects of this multi-trillion dollar industry though the dilution of “Value Added Tax Revenues.” Today, governments are facing up to 90% of VAT reductions due to non-collection, leading to an eventual crisis. We call this, the “Virtual Risk”.

Over the last 60 years, the sale of tangible goods and services have allowed money to flow to countries like China with proper collection of VAT, levies, and other taxes.

Areas like the Middle East have also benefitted greatly from these collected revenues from their involvement in the world’s oil and gas industries.
But what about the virtual world?

Technical Analysis

Netsweeper has dedicated project managers that are fully Prince/2 and PMP certified, as well as dedicated engineers that ensure systems are deployed using industry standards and proven methodologies. Documentation is shared with customers on how the solution has been implemented. Everything from a high level design document, to a technical statement of work, to acceptance planning and testing is included.


Solution Engineers

Many types of deployments are possible with Netsweeper. Netsweeper solution engineers collaborate with the technical staff of the customer to understand the requirements, the network environment, and any constraints that apply to the deployment. A solution document and scope of work is then created that will give greater details on the exact deployment. Deployed in the network with connection through a DPI, network TAP, or other means, the best deployment options are “out of band” filtering, in which the Netsweeper solution does not interfere with legitimate traffic, but instead only interrupts delivery of disallowed content.

Depending on the network and functionality required, Netsweeper can also deploy an inline solution as a ‘bump on the wire’ or a full proxy solution.
