  1. GFI Web Monitor Authentication Exception List

    It would be better if authentication method exception list accepts ip range and ip subnet instead of only unique ip address.
    Configuration-Proxy Settings-Authentication Method-Set exception list. We need to add a subnet but it does not support it.

  2. Hide Referrals

    Client have the same situation: a site is whitelist, but that is still not enough because sites in the background will block the entire connection or make it much slower.

    Client would like that if the main URL is excluded or whitelist, the referral in the background will also be excluded.

  3. De-select ALL Dashboard icons

    Some Dashboard icons (columns) can be de-selected in the menu. There needs to be an option to de-select ALL dashboard icons (columsn) at the user's will. The reason is there are some icons and features I simply don't need to see in the main view. For example the 24/7 maintenance service or restart column icon. I want to deactive it but it is not allowed.

  4. Performance issues with IP Ranges

    There is a major software performance issue when using large amounts of IP Ranges.

    We only have 1000 devices in our boarding school but use different subnet for each year (eg 192.168.14.* / 192.168.15.* etc for each year they leave). This allows us to bulk remove them when they leave and also schedule internet access times / access rules depending on year / boarding house.

    Problem is that when you use an IP range rule GFI Webmonitor checks the rules against every INDIVIDUAL IP address in that range, so if you add more that 4 or 5 ranges then the…

  6. Exporting web filtering policies

    Have a way to export the web filtering policies into a spreadsheet or file that displays all the filters with what restriction is applied as well as the exceptions lists and who they apply to. This can be if a company has multiple policies and wants to see exactly which group has what filters active as well as the sites exception list and allow list and who it applies to, to stop having too many clone groups that are close to being the same.

  8. Web monitor as a centralized solution

    if we have 5 branches including the HQ its connected to each other’s and we have 5 TMG servers one for each branch we are targeting to install GFI web monitor on each server , does GFI web monitor have centralized dash board, data base and reporting engine?
    They are looking to manage the 5 branches from one location for example to generate one report for user moving between 5 branches from the centralized dashboard.

  9. inspect for blocked files inside compressed files

    client has a policy to block .msi and .exe files
    but if this files come inside a compresses files like .zip or .rar the files can bypass the blocked policy.
    It can allow for 0-day virus to be downloaded.

  10. Larger support for more filetypes

    Recently a user was not able to download a document of the dxf and dwg type. This is a filetype well known to CAD users. Adding these filetypes to GFI Webmonitor would be helpfull since I then I do not have to whitelist websites.

  11. Copy and Paste Feature on Checks

    Since IE11 was introduced to my machine I am now unable to copy and paste details from the Checks Tab within the Dashboard. Working on a Servicedesk I found it a very useful tool which prevented me having to write out very long script check details every time I had to raise a case. This feature is now not available and raising 100's of cases is going to take 4-5 times longer to raise. Is it possible to please re-add this feature?
    Cheers

    Dean

  13. Citrix XenServer support

    Currently GFI WebMonitor doesn't support Microsoft TMG 2010 inside Virtual Machines on Citrix XenServer virtualization platform. It would be great if GFI has plan on it.

  14. Whitelist for Anti-Phishing filter

    We at least, could sure use a way to tell the GFI Webmonitor anti-phishing filter that a specific site is trusted. We send staff at our retail stores to a trusted Vendor for tech support but the filter blocks their ticket form. Tech Support agreed that the only current solution is to turn the Anti-phishing filter off. Obviously not a great solution.

  17. Temporary allowed vs. anonymization

    When anonymization is enabled Temporary allowed policy is not visible.
    I use this workaround if I found bad categorization:
    1. Temporary allow site for 2 weeks.
    2. Submit request for recategorization.
    This works fine almost 100%.

    But when anonymization is enabled I cannot use this workaround.

    Could you do something to use temporary allowed policy however anonymization is enabled?

  18. Automated or simplified categorizing of "unknown" Sites ....

    An easy to use catogorization-tool and/or automated categorizing of unknown sites:
    Simple click on submit -> klick on the appropiate group(s) the site belongs and off .. not copy/paste the domain-name, click on the categorys AND supply mail-address. Also Batch-processing would be great !
