Monitoring Employee Web Usage

Posted on 2006-05-30

Can anyone recommend a decent and affordable package for analyzing employee web usage statistics?  My boss wants weekly detailed reports that show:

-Frequently visited web sites for all users
-Number of 'hits' per website
-Amount of time spent on a given website
-Any additional info is an added plus

We are running Windows 2003 SBS with ISA Server...but apparently ISA doesn't allow you to really customize the web usage reports.  I've sent my boss the automated reports that ISA generates, and he wants more detail.  So I'm looking at buying something affordable and easy to set up.  We have between 15-20 users/workstations.  Any suggestions?

Thanks in adavance.

    Depending on what your budget is, and what technology you already have, I would suggest a firewall/router that includes Web-Usage Monitoring in it's Syslog functions...
    Sonicwall offers a product with it's firewalls that is called Viewpoint(though it can be a little gimpy), and I am sure if you look around the other companies offer something comparable...

    I hope this helps,
