With administrator controls such as live parental restrictions, local management, and remote management you can maintain complete control of your network. The live parental controls allow you to put in place restrictions throughout the network for children or staff. With local and remote management you can be sure you remain in control of the network whether or not you have the ability to directly access the network.
