Binning in-house web filtering
Has anyone ditched in-house filtering to rely entirely on Webscreen? It feels, intuitively, to be a bad idea, but it's presumably robust and can provide the required granularity. And I would be glad to see our Smartcache fold its tent.

Nope.... I tried to generate a report from it last week on traffic from a particular IP address. I started to generate the report at 14:42 and it was ready for viewing at 22:53. The report was only covering one day.
At least with our in-house filtering I can get a report in a couple of minutes rather than several hours.
Plus we don't make heavy use of the USO accounts so it wouldn't really work for us.

Yes, only use webscreen 2.0. Never had any problems, but the LGFL help desk is not that helpful.

we use lightspeed.
It is very good at what it does. Allowing you full control.

Does Lightspeed have dynamic page analysis?
