How do you know if your security is working?

Protecting your business doesn’t have to mean sifting through endless alerts and notifications. With WatchGuard Total Security Suite, you can feel confident that your business is secure, meaning you can get back to the things that have been sitting on your to-do list.

Essentially your asking

How do I only allow authenticated Web Browsing

Well to do that you need a repository to hold usernames and passwords - you allready have active directory so it makes sense use that then deploy a proxy server.

If thats not an option then your other alternatives are more Expensive, a Firewall that is RADIUS or TACACS+ aware
or a hardware device like an iNTY would also suffice.

ok that makes sense.  Would I have to use ISA for everything or can I specify what I want it to cache.  Sorry, I'm still new to this.

Thats OK - there are other products besided ISA - Which is basically a Proxy server and firewall application server - You can set its caching levels and sizes but you cant selectively cache on site "Type"

If you could lay your hands on a copy of microsoft proxy server (now unsupported and past its end of life) that would do the same.
