After some kinks were worked out it works remarkably well.
    Same as this

    ISA 2006 (and BT webfilter for web filtering).

    I would say flexibility is an advantage with ISA 2006 as you seem to be able to do anything and there are wizards for MS servers (like OWA),

    Disadvantages? Overally complex may. 2nd hand; consultants have mentioned glitches that they have not been able to resolve (solution re-install!).

    But I've not had the chance to try any others, so I can't speak with any authority.

    If people are like us, they have a local ISA/TMG box which forwards to an upstream cache such as those provided by SWGfL. The reason being, ISA/TMG is very cheap for schools (we're talking 40 a year sorta money), and they don't need anything else as it is just a local cache/firewall and not the filtering device. Also, it is very simple to install for basic use.

    Just signed up for a 3 year contract with Smoothwall using one of their UTM-1000 devices. Previously used ISA / Forefront + Websense (ick). After trialing the box for about 3 days, it was clear to us that Smoothwall was the obvious choice. Its great!

    Aftering years with Squid Proxy on Gentoo and then Ubuntu, decided that for what we wanted to do we needed to do a bit of an overhaul. Smoothwall provided exactly what we wanted and been very impressed with it since. We using the school guardian product.

    We had Websense installed before i started here, but it ran out and the school were looking for a 'cheap' alternative.
    I ended up installing Blue Coat's 'K9' content filtering on the student proxy server (has squid installed), so all the student PC's now get filtered with K9
    Free and works quite well.
