Because of the tool, I did not have to assign web filtering tasks to my techs on a daily basis

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is web filtering for K-12. We have approximately 1700 learners.

Pros and Cons

  • "Granular setup, which was able to set different levels of filters using the OUs in the AD."
  • "Because of iboss, I did not have to assign web filtering tasks to my techs on a daily basis."
  • "SSL decryption: We had issues with learners using apps instead of using web browsers. This type of encryption is tough for any appliance in a BYOD environment."

Within the filter, controls such as Web categories and applications simplify tasks

Pros and Cons

  • "Valuable features: Within the filter: Controls (Web categories, applications, and Allow/Block list) and Network (local Subnets). Within the reporter: Logs (Event Log) and Reports."
  • "The area I would like to see improvement in is the ability with in the reporter to navigate directly to the content the user is traversing. It is kind of there, but it's not perfect. Quite frequently, I receive links that lead me to pages with error messages."
  • "To scale up, a new iboss Node Blade Chassis must be purchased."

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.
