    New Proxy Server

    Hi All,

    I'm looking for a new proxy server and wonder if any of you could recommend anything? Its for a standard corporate environment (not left for the school yet), roughly 600-700 users.

    I've used scansafe and bluecoat but wonder what else people could recommend and any rough costs if you have any??

    Thanks

    Blocking malicious websites and anything we deem unsuitable and reporting. That's pretty much it.

    The iBoss Enterprise units are the very best I've ever used and everyone I have demonstrated it to (including vendors trying to sell me something else) have walked away extremely impressed and knowing why I won't use anything else.

    http://www.iboss.com/ibwf_overview.html

    They are easy to configure, VERY flexible, fast, have outstanding reporting capabilities; great QoS/bandwidth shaping; Desktop recording on triggering of threshold (Mac, PC, and Linux); multiple authentication methods including: NTLM, AD proxy, AD plugin, mobile agents for Mac and PC, capture screen; MDM for iOS and Android (including remote filtering), and more. It can operate in various network configurations http://www.iboss.com/ibwf_integratio..._diagrams.html

    It's the only proxy/filter that I've seen working as well with Mac and Linux as PC. And has features that others just can't match without integration into additional systems or heavy customisation.

    You can request an evaluation before you buy. The support is fantastic before and after sales.

    p.s. I have no association with Phantom Technologies other than as a customer. I just think they are that good. There are no distributors for them in Australia, but they shipped out a brand new eval unit in short order. You won't go wrong with them.
