Just a quick question.

It's a nice idea to be able to integrate a web filter directly into WinRoute (which we are contemplating to use inside our company).

However, going to ISS itself, i see no mention of ISS Orange at ALL, Kerio also isn't listed as a 'partner' anywhere.

I can't find a feature list anywhere either.

It doesn't work well for Kerio when we are comparing a number of web filtering packages and Kerio seems to have an optional component (not a cheap one at that) that according to the ISS website doesn't even exist (after going to it by following the 'learn more' link on the WinRoute site).

Anyways, i'd like to see a nice feature list of ISS Orange, and a detailed one at that. If no such thing is available, we might as well remove it from our comparison..

So, if one of these detailed feature lists is available, i'd be much obliged.

Thanks,

Mike

The ISS Orange filter does nothing more than classify websites into 58 categories. Based on these categories you can block or allow traffic.

Also, it classifies every site that is visited (even if you're not blocking or anything). Based on this you get a nice diagram of the types of sites a user visits (10% technology, 30% lifestyle, 35% webmail, etc.)

I find it handy to very easily block nudity, gambling and such in my company. The filter is not 100%, but that's ok. If I filter out 95% I'm happy. And the users know they are being 'watched', so that in itself is instrumental.

ISS itself calls it the Proventia Web Filter: http://www.iss.net/products_services/webfilter/index.php.

You can check classifications of websites here: http://www.iss.net/products_services/webfilter/test_site.php.

Here is more detailed information: http://www.iss.net/support/documentation/docs.php?product=39 &family=13

Thanks for that.

Surf Control has been doing real well for us but recently we got an upgrade to v5 of their software and our current server for it is well below the minimum requirements. Which is one of the reasons we're kind of looking into something else to complement the proposed WinRoute usage on our new T1 line.

Since you seem to be dutch, bedankt!
