More security

Controls for users and groups include web filtering, internet access and bandwidth usage policies. We could enforce data transfer limitations on uploads and downloads and set limits on daily, weekly, monthly and yearly usage.

Clientless users don't log on to the appliance but for these you can't apply surfing and data transfer quotas or Internet access time restrictions. However, the appliance can now redirect these users to a captive web portal where they enter their credentials.

Web filtering rules support HTTP and HTTPS as standard and a useful feature is the ability to assign different actions to a category. You could, for example, block HTTP access to business web sites but allow secure HTTPS connections.

For anti-spam, we could apply a global policy to all users and fine tune it with custom policies. Suspect messages can be dropped, rejected or quarantined to the appliance's internal 1TB hard disk and the spam digest service sends regular spam advisory reports to users.

The iView report tool is included in the price and delivers a wealth of information
