    We have Securus and it caught a significant grooming event that resulted in a successful prosecution. So money well spent in my opinion.

    The Securus URL blocking doens't work at all.

    Enter a domain into the block list, create a shortcut to it using explorer. If you open it and refresh it a few times you'll get through on about the second or third attempt. Sometimes you get a few mangled bits of HTML from the "Access Denied!" page, but rarely.

    Chocolate teapot.

    I'm not a big Securus fan myself - very cumbersome.

    We had major problems with URL blocking as well - which is a shame as it can do some things that you cant do with cachepilot.

    We had problems with it not blocking things we told it to block
    We had problem with it blocking things that should not be blocked
    and we had problems with clients not updating their block lists (probably the cause of the first problem on my list)

    We've had one and three, but luckily not two. I think that would be the final straw that would result in it being ejected out of a window.
