We are a state agency and we are providing some of our child care resource agencies with PCs. We need to install CIPA compliant Web filtering software. Have anyone dealt with CIPA and content filtering. I'm looking for a recommendation for a software product. All PCs will be running Windows XP.

Hi

Websense offers CIPA compliant filtering products:

As do Fortinet:

I'm sure some of the other major web filtering vendors also offer similar compliance.

cheers
