Secure Web Browsing

IS_Team asked
Last Modified: 2015-09-30
I am looking for opinions and comments on what others are doing to secure their company networks while still allowing some form of web browsing by users.  I am looking for a solution that will allow me to limit my networks exposure to malware/viruses from users browsing the internet.  I have the standard safe guards in place such as local antivirus on client PC's, border firewall, web proxy, etc...  However, I am looking to secure our network and web browsing further.

What is everyone else doing?  i.e.:  Only allowing whitelisted sites.  Using two browsers, one for internal sites/whitelisted sites and a sandboxed virtual browser for all other browsing.  Using two PC's homed to different networks (public & private).

Any feedback of ideas and product solutions that I can consider would be greatly appreciated.
