Hello,

 

Just after some ideas on what are in the business arena that offer good web blocking and monitoring services.

 

We have had OpenDNS and WebMarshal in the past - is there any others that you could recommended for 

 

Thanks - Grunta

Are you looking for an appliance?

 

 

 

Something like a Fortigate 100/200E could do both for you. Sizing would depend on what volumes of traffic you are pushing.

How big is your internet pipe. That's what you really need to know for scaling. Most Next Gen Firewalls do good web filtering now, the bit you want to look at carefully is SSL decrypt - that is essential for good web blocking.

I used IPCop for many many years worked well. Not sure of its current status. Linux distro on a PC / machine with 2 - 4 network cards.

 

Runs following networks:

 

  •  Green (internal)
  • Orange (maybe open to internet but in the internal network)
  • Red: Outsiders
  • Blue: wireless

scanning and lock down. Lots of plug ins to notify, watch, ban etc.

 

Also as it is linux firewall highly configureable and can be used as a log in required web proxy. Spam assassian / squid guard and other filters can be installed.

 

Used it for 30 plus on really old pcs and no issues found. Upgrade the HW and should scale out okay.
