Business needs site blocking software to block unwanted websites and stuff.

Hi, I'm looking for a way to block business internet users from some websites.  These locations use hardwired VPN equipment that I don't want to change, and I only want to restrict some of the users, so I figured a software solution would be the best.

Looking around I found some home solutions like "NetNanny" and the like, but I would like this to look a little more professional.  It dosen't have to be free, or easy to install and I would like it to have a list of sites, I don't want to manually put in all the sites I want to block.  Blocking P2P sites would be a huge bonus.  OH, and a site licence would be great, keeping me from licencing each and every computer at that site.

Thanks guys.

Websense is the evil anti-unproductivity software.. but, we use it here. You can block sites out by categories (e.g., personal & dating sites, games, weapons, etc.).

yes, Business. Websence seems fine price wise, but the intigration with the AD kinda scares me.  I would really like stand alone software that is hidden to the user, site licenseable and runs reports.  Just like NetNany, but a business solution.
