What is most valuable?

* Granular setup, which was able to set different levels of filters using the OUs in the AD. * The reporting was as detailed as much as you requested. * Filtering different age group of learners is imperative to allow the secondary learners with more access to information on the web and restricting our primary learners to areas of the web that we could trust.

How has it helped my organization?

We switched to 1-to-1 iPads, needing more control and ease of use. Because of iboss, I did not have to assign web filtering tasks to my techs on a daily basis. As a department, we were able to spend our time making a difference in our learning education experience other than being the web monitoring police.

Quite frequently, I receive links that lead me to pages with error messages such as, "An error occurred while… more»

What other advice do I have?

I rate it an eight out of 10. There could be a few changes, but it's a solid product. Look into the iboss Node Blade Chassis and not 14600. This product is solid, fairly easy to use, and reliable.
