Hi there,
I'm looking for commercial proxy server products that would be installed on top of windows 2003 or 2008.
What would be your suggestions? I need a highly popular solution that has good support options etc.

    Do you have anything other than ISA server? How about CC Proxy or similar services?

    The only proxy I've ever used just as a proxy is ISA.  I have used other proxy type services, but mainly for web filtering. This would include SurfControl, but I ran that on top of ISA, St. Bernard iPrism (an appliance) and web filtering from Postini (a hosted service).
