Good Web Filter?

By CGriffith318 ·
I am looking for suggestions on a good web filter. We are a medium-sized organization. We would like good reporting and easy to configure. I am open to all suggestions. If they have a website and you know what it is it would be great if you would list it as well.

Thanks in advance!

There are several proxy servers on the market. I've used Squid, ISA Proxy, Netscape and WinProxy in the past. I am sure other folks will ring in here with recommendations.

ISA 2000 or ISA 2004. 2000 is a mature product with all the bugs pretty much ironed out. ISA 2004 is a new product and can be terribly frustating to get to work for those who know ISA 2000 as the wizards do most of the work. Documentation on Microsofts site is sparce [mostly just white papers and generic setup]and most use for the best Q&A and tips on how to get it to work.

GFI reporting tools for ISA server 2000 adds user names with access where the stock ISA reporting only reports by IP address.

Web Sense. It's a little pricey, but well worth it. Also comes w/ spyware blocking (not removal, just block users from downlaoding the programs or , if infected, from sending data back out) at additional cost that works very well. Reporting is pretty good and it is just a couple of hour job to get going in its basic form.

Web Sense is good and the other I would recommend is Surf Control at:

Also, try your firewall company as many offer an integrated filter feature.

Good Luck,
