What do you mean manage? Monitoring conversations/logging conversations?
Blocking is easy, logging can be a bit tougher, but a proxy is a great way to log/monitor all the traffic your users do.
Here are some other monitoring tools that are a must for any LAN (in my opinion)
Ntop http://www.ntop.org/overview.html (here is the windows version- http://www.openxtra.co.uk/products/ntop-xtra.php )
Snort http://www.snort.org/
Cacti http://cacti.net/
