Cisco ASA 5505 features

I have acquired a site that is using the ASA 5505, and am wondering what options are typically available for this appliance that will offer content controls.

I'm unfamiliar with the Cisco line, and in visiting their site nothing is really jumping out for that particular function.

The site wants to (potentially) use this device to allow/block access to certain internet resources.  Ideally, they want to be able to do it based on specific systems.

Most devices I've worked with require additional license for this option in the first place, and I doubt they have that portion....

That said -- what options are available to play electronic babysitter for this site using this appliance?

Now, another twist to that....  Is any level of this functionality available via the web interface?

Realizing CLI is more flexible in more cases than not, I have to consider potential local admin for "routine" adjustments --- definitely don't want them in CLI for that, not that this is entirely safe either.

Not quite sure (more of a CLI guy :). Then again, you have a CLI option in the ASDM as well so they will have access to that when they have ASDM access.........
