  1. 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

    Hi there,
    I would like from you to please check the non ISA GFI monitor for monitoring the squid proxy and update if it can be integrated with that for reports and graphs.

    Looking forward for your update in this regards.

  3. MIME Types in Dashboards and All reports

    It must be able to reflect the information on MIME type in the dashboard (activity, real-time) and the records to be able to understand exactly what is downloaded, and each file which the security policy is triggered.
    For example: open site. In it is java script that is malware. You must be able to understand which file is the problem.

  4. Disable X-Forwarded-For Header

    To have the ability to disable the X-Forwarded-For header in the GFI WebMonitor. This will prevent the client IP address from be forwarded out thru the proxy. The majority of other major proxies (Barracuda, McAfee, etc.) all have this feature available.

  5. Alerts per Department

    There needs to be a way to set up Alerts to only apply to certain users or groups. Ex, Finance Manager should get notified if someone in the financing department has activated a Productivity Loss alert

  6. Politicas Web Browsing Quota poner horario

    Poder bloquear una categoria pero liberarla durante durante una hora y mientras esta politica está bloqueda poder utilizar durante 5 minutos al dia.
    Ahora no se puede porqué al estar activada la Browsing Quota prevalece después de los 5 minutos aunque la Web Filtering esté desactivada. Solución poner horarios en la política de Browsing Quota.

    Con esto conseguimos que se queden bloqueadas politicas durante una jornada laboral, liberarlas durante el descanso de 1 hora pero permitir utilizarlas durante el bloqueo unos 5 minutos.

  7. Load whole site with one exception entry

    a quick suggestion which i think is a strong weakness in webmonitor
    versus other products

    we have certain websites like airmalta.com
    these sites have multiple url's inside their code
    for example they have widgets which come from xyz.com
    etc etc
    if you allow airmalta.com through, you still need to go through the code
    check for every other domain and allow it individually
    for the whole site to load correctly for users

    one should be able to put in airmalta.com and load the whole site

    i know there are technical stuff to deal with, but from a user's stand point it…

  8. New agent connects to Webmon

    Like with the 'old Proxy/ISA-client' it would be nice to have the connection get taken care of by the new GFI Webmon Agent. Right now it is difficult to get browsers other than IE to go through Webmon, since they are not domain-policy based in settings. In this case, one needs to really set up Webmon as the default gateway, to let noone get passed without being noticed. Since this new Agent is installed it can check
    Is the Webmon-machine there? Thenforward all pre-configured protocols via Webmon.
    If it is not there, filter with the local database, but without the…

  10. Activity Report without showing usernames

    it's not possible to run an activity report without showing usernames.
    My management want to publish this report public but we can't do this for privacy reasons.

  11. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Option to clear malicious alerts in GFI Web Monitor Dashboard

    We need to have an option where we can clear malicious alerts detected on the GFI Web monitor dashboard.

    Have the old malicious alerts archived within a lapse of time automatically (monthly) or can be cleared manually by the administrator.

  20. Backtrace browse actions

    Several users find it hard to see what might have triggered a phishing attack. The link itself and the user and the website might be logged, but in most cases, it is not the website itself, but a script that is calling upon this location. It is very difficult to see what site/URL triggered the phishing location. It would be nice to enable this 'traceable cache' for some minutes or group the info that was called upon by what site.
