  1. Use SHA256 rather than SHA-1 for HTTPS scanning

    GFI WebMonitor is generating SHA1 certificates for HTTPS sites when HTTP scanning is used. By default, Firefox is set to block SHA-1 certificates if they were issued with a start date of 1-1-2016 or newer. WebMonitor uses the previous day for the ssl certificate it generates so all secure websites in Firefox now show an error that you cannot bypass with changing security.pki.sha1_enforcement_level on each PC's Firefox about:config. The settings are

    Define an integer pref security.pki.sha1_enforcement_level, with values:
    0 = allow SHA-1
    1 = forbid SHA-1
    2 = allow SHA-1 only if notBefore < 2016-01-01

    GFi Webmonitor needs to generate…

  4. Allow bypasing Proxy authentication based on source-destination assignments

    In WebMonitor 10 it is possible to configure hosts (IPs) that can bypass proxy authentication as a source.
    With a configuration change based an the article below it is also possible to bypass proxy authentication for certain destinations:
    http://www.gfi.com/support/products/gfi-webmonitor/How-to-bypass-proxy-authentication-for-certain-sites

    However in many environments it would be necessary to configure rules that would only allow bypassing proxy authentication from certain source to certain destination meanwhile other traffic initiated from the same source would still require proxy authentication to other destinations and vice-versa.

  6. Looks like it is not blocking based on size at least.

    I set a limit for my IP, my username, to not have more than 50MB/day. Default policy set to block. So it should stop me after the limit is reached. It doesn't. Maybe because I have no active key?

  7. Activity Dashboard is not filled

    I have been downloading at least 7 GB up to now (today) and I see no activity being logged. I did set my browser on the server itself to use the LAN-IP as proxy and enabled basic_auth. In RT-logging it shows the Active Traffic, but not in the dashboard itself (historical data).

  8. 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…

  12. WebMonitor Policy Tester

    A policy tester would be a welcomed feature.

    Where once a policy has been altered you could test the policy by selecting an user and inputting a website or url patch. WebMon could check that request and confirm if it is allowed or blocked.

    I feel this would assist in letting you know that the policy is configured correctly or indeed if a separate policy is blocking it all before you inform the end user that their alteration has been made.

  14. Alerts via Mail for update errors only on 2nd or 3rd error

    We have Webmon configured to update everything every 1 hour. As sometimes the GFI infrastructure has issues, sometimes the updates would fail but in the next cycle would mostly succeed. I´d like webmon to let the admin configure that only a warning mail is send on the 2nd or 3rd failed attempt to download. Mail essentials already does it that way, btw.

  15. Exceptions for WebMonitor Reports

    Previous version of GFI Webmonitor would accept exceptions to the reports only using the root domain. The new version needs all the resources to be excluded. The previous solution was easier to administer.

  17. Use TLS 1.2 as a default

    Webmonitor uses TLS 1.0 by default when doing https decryption. Due to the vulnerabilities in TLS 1.0, some sites are moving to blocking the connection unless TLS 1.2 is used. Please use 1.2 by default and fall back as necessary. Our only option is to whitelist these sites. In addition, starting June 2018, TLS 1.0 will no longer be PCI compliant. https://blog.pcisecuritystandards.org/migrating-from-ssl-and-early-tls

  18. More defined timescales

    I think it would be a useful tool if we could monitor usage at specific times of the day, for example between 6pm to 10pm to see what they're accessing on the internet whilst supposedly working overtime...

  19. 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)

  20. Password protect the uninstallation of the WebMonitor agent

    It would be good to password protect the WebMonitor agent to prevent users from removing it even if they are local administrators on their laptop
