    Websense provider?

    Hi,

    I have tried contacting Websense directly and had no reply. Who do you recommend to provide Websense to an Academy-in-waiting?

    Thanks

    Have a search on here for Websense threads before signing up, I know for sure that @timbo343 isn't that impress with the latest offering from them and there are many other products out there now, including Smoothwall which is used by a large number of members and schools across the world and IMHO (and I came from a Websense background) it is light-years ahead of it and much better value.

    If you are that desperate for WebSense maybe try Insight UK Ltd or maybe Capita IT (formally Ramesys) they maybe able to help you, but I would suggest that you ensure you have evaluated it fully as to use it with TMG you need quite a lot of kit.

    haha, thanks John... yeah... if ellisteph10 wants to have a chat about websense im more than welcome to share my thoughts. I would do what Jon says, test before you buy. The latest version (7.6) is about 1.5Gb in size and needs to be setup like this:

    Server 1 - TMG (if you chose to use this)
    Server 2 - Core Websense Components
    Server 3 - Websense Reporter

    Version 6.3.3 and 7.1 however can be configured like this but bear in mind that these versions don't run on a 64bit OS..

    Server 1 - ISA2006 & Websene Core components
    Server 2 - Websense Reporter

    If you want, I shall dig out our last websense tomorrow and let you know of the suppliers if you really want to go down the websense route. We bought 3 years with 600 users (machines) and they were doing a buy 3 years for the price of 2 and ended up paying about £9000.
