Hi,
you haven't mentioned your requirement clearly,
If you want a software for single system i.e. for desktop/laptop  you can go with blue coat K9 web protection, it is free of cost and it has came with many features like Block websites, safe search, time restriction etc.

If you want software or hardware for your network, you should plan device as per your traffic. I can agree with Kola12 if you having heavy network traffic. But if you having small network you can manage it with routers like Net gear, D-link, TP link etc....
If you want software to maintain your network traffic you can proceed with proxy servers like CC - proxy, ISA server.
I will suggest go with Microsoft ISA server if you are ready to pay for license.
You can get more information about proxy from below link:

Hi, Thanks for you suggestions.

I need something that  I can block groups ie... the warehouse group I don't want using youtube, and the sale I don't want using facebooks.
I can do it at the router, but it till block everyone, wont it?

Yes,
if you are going with Netgear router it will comes up with parental control software, which you can install on other desktop and manage groups and permissions to various websites. I am not sure weather this features comes in other routers or not.

Cisco also having firewall, but i dont think it is having required features, better to go with proxy server, root your network traffic through proxy server. Add proxy server setting in users IE. you can deploy proxy settings using GP also.
