Hello Guys-

Was just wondering if anyone had recommendations for a web filtering solution / appliance for medium to Large business, e.g. 200- 500 users. We need control at the AD group level, e.g. management have access to everything, user1 and user2 have access to most things, and thanks

alex

Couple of options that we have used are the Baracuda and Sophos.  Both are good appliance options.

WebMarshal (cheap and can be painful to deploy):

Thank Mohammed,  I had forgot about Websense,  

We have used it as well.  It is a very good product.  It does seem to take more human involvement to maintain but overall a very nice product. I really liked how easy it integrated it with AD.
