Firewall with URL Filtering & Groups

By Westleyl ·
I've been doing a lot of research on hardware firewalls. Some look better than others and the sites lack some information about the products.

I'm looking for a hardware firewall that has URL filtering and will allow me to setup groups (allow some users full access to the internet and others can only go to particular sites).

I know Sonicwall's products offer this, but it is pretty expensive per year.

Anyone know any products like this?

IPCop or SmoothWall

You don't mention the size of your connected user base but take a look at IPCop or Smoothwall Express. Used in conjunction with URL filter and Advanced Proxy plugins both will do what you need.

The netscreen 5gt and 25 are good units with URL filtering option available, that is customizable via policies.

ISA firewall

You'd be hard pressed to get a better application layer inpsection firewall than the ISA firewall. And an ISA hardware firewall ends up being a lot more cost effective than the other's you mention.
