  1. iOS / Android / Windows 8 - WebMonitor App

    The Product Management team is currently asking for feedback from the GFI WebMonitor community about whether demand exists for an extension of WebMonitor to mobile devices such as tablets and SmartPhones. This is not for control of the WebMonitor interface and reporting, this is for the actual web filtering / web security capabilities.

    Up vote this idea if you would like to see development of Apps for mobile devices and comment with your thoughts and other feedback based on your experience and the demand you see for this feature.

  2. Show hostnames instead of IP address

    In case of unauthenticated connections the reports show the IP address. It would be nice to have the possibility to show the resolved hostname instead (or both)

    In many cases the computer naming convention helps the administrators to easily identify the computer. It is easier to read JOHN-DOE-PC than 10.10.5.110

  3. Filter Uploads against filetypes

    It will be a good selling point for the german market to filter uploads. Some customer will prohibit to upload confidential documents to webmailer or only storage provider. The possiblity is also given in mailsecurity to define which content could be send or received. To complete the data leakage policy for SMTP and HTTP in companies it is a must to filter the upload of file(types) over HTTP.

  5. QoS in webmonitor

    It would be nice to have an extra feature in Webmonitor. In this extra feature you are allowed to set the % bandwidth or the speed (Kb/s) per category/website/item. If a percentage is set, this is always respective to the current total download/upload speed.

  6. Changes to Reporting

    A lot of customers want to know what websites their users are going to, for how long, and want to also see what they are doing within those sites (IE facebook, chats, etc). They also want to know when they are going to the sites, how many times (date listed). Most are coming from a world where different web products show all of this information, easily. The way the logging reads for a sys admin is fine, however to the owner of a company it reads poorly and doesn't show them what they really need to know. It would be…

  8. Internationalized domain name

    Internationalized domain name support.

    Example, if you try whitelist www.metsälehti.fi it does not work as expected. (now you need whitelist address www.xn--metslehti-y2a.fi to make it effective)

  10. Securing my webserver

    It would be very beneficial to either deploy Webmonitor or Vipre in some shape or form to protect my webserver. We have had some questions in the past year to secury up and downloads from a server published THROUGH TMG/ISA. Webmon only checks the download from the untrust to trust and not the other way around, while this might be wanted.
    If GFI is willing to make this, you are one of the two, so there is potential here.

  11. Checkboxes are confusing...

    Maybe it is just me, but the checkboxes in webmon are either 'empty' or fully filled and not with a cross. This looks confusing to the users I've show it so far. I've come accross software that is eitehr putting it empty, crossed or filled and the latter is 'same as parent' or 'greyed out'. In this case it isn't, it's a yes or no. Maybe a cross is better (the world isn't ready yet :p)

    Hi there,

    With our ideology to change the world, we thought about starting with the checkbox. We do understand that the world needs a proper introduction to the replacement of the familiar cross in the checkbox. For now we will keep the filled box, even though it looks confusing.
    - Open is not checked
    - Filled is checked

    Thank you for your interest in our products and services.

    With kind regards,
    GFI Software

  16. Share same configuration among multiple Servers NLB

    We wanted to use multiple GFI Web Monitor Servers because we have lots of users. Not providing any load balancing solution within GFI, we used the NLB functionality built into Windows Server 2012 R2. But every time we want to adjust somthing in the configuration, we have to do this on all Servers. It would be great if we could move the configuration to a SMB share where all Servers can read it from.

    Thank you

  17. Block personal Gmail & IM, but allow Google business apps

    Google supports http header X-GoogApps-Allowed-Domains to allow only access to google services for business accounts but not for personal accounts.

    http://support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1668854

    Please support this so we can block personal google IM and mail but not allowed business mail, IM and hangouts.

    Also if it possible track IM conversations to determine if sender is a business related account or not.

  18. Scanning only until filesize limit

    Big files wich are per configuration to scan will force the Webmon crash. ( See Case GFI-101228-207682 ). The possibility of setting a scanlimit (for example 500 MB/file) could help to increase performance and stability.

  20. Reports page, Change Title Click to Run & Run to be edit button

    It is unituitive to click the title to edit the report. Clicking the title should RUN the report, as such where the run button is... that should be the edit button.

    I keep clicking the title expecting it to run the report, even though I know it won't. Also once on the edit page add 2 buttons.

    Run Now and Save and Run
