Best Internet/Spam Protection??

By maniac4taz ·
I work for a K-8 School District. We are currently using Lightspeed Total Traffic Control with very good results, however, they are changing their pricing to a "per seat" and are literally pushing themselves out the door due to budget constraints. We previously used Websense, but switched due to their pricing and the fact that their product was extremely limited in comparison to Lightspeed. My Supervisor wants me to shop around and to be honest, I have heard of other products, but none that seem to compare. I would like to hear what other organizations are using, pluses & minuses of the product, and any solid recommendations.

we use elron software for surfing and a barracuda appliance for spam. others include surfcontrol..

there are quite a few, you should lookup reviews.
this kind of tech question would actually make a good discussion instead, let everyone weigh in.

sites like networkcomputing, baselinemag, cnet, informationweek will have info on sw to use.

CA Associates has a protection suite that includes spyware and spam along with eTrust AV. Their Business Proteciton Suite is pretty good. Don't have any info on if they have discounts for education [my bet is]. if your interested, send a PM and I'll put you in contact with a CA sales rep.

If you look at Symantec Mail Security - Enterprise Edition it has an add-on called Symantec Premium AntiSpam that offers a spam detection rate of 95% and an accuracy rate against false positives of 99.9999% (so they say)

Symantec provides antispam capabilities to 9 out of the top 12 ISPs so it might be good!
