    You can use a hardware router or firewall.

    If you are using AD, you can create a GPO to push out fake proxy settings based on membership to a user group. If you want extremely restricted internet this is a decent solution. You maintain a whitelist of appoved sites and update it as needed.

    If you're looking for filtering based on content or website names that will almost certainly require a 3rd party software solution.

    You could also push out a host file change that blocks sites you don't want then to use by point those sites to localhost
