  1. 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…

  2. Report showing upload files

    I would suggest to have an specific report showing filename and the extension of files upload in sites to transfer large files like sendspace.com or wetransfer.com

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. WEBGrade Miscategorisation

    It would be nice to have the Categories in different Languages for WEBGRADE!

    as well as the Miscateogrisation report, could this be adjusted, language wise, too?

    At the moment, the report miscategorisation link is only available in english. You will
    need to submit this as a feature request to have this page made available with
    translations into other languages.

    Kind regards,

    Ewan

  16. Recognition of Open Document Format (ODF) Documents

    We are using GFI WebMonitor 2013 (Build 20130910) for ISA/TMG running on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard with TMG 2010 (SP 2 Rollup 5).
    Our Default Download Policy, applied to all of our users, quarantines .ZIP files. However, when someone attempts to download an Open Document Format Document (.ODT, .ODS, .ODP) it is blocked as GFI WebMonitor (mistakenly) detects it as a .ZIP file.
    I added and permitted the download of the relevant Custom Content Types for Open Format Files to WebMonitor. This did not work.
    I opened a support case with GFI who stated that "since ODT are compressed…

  17. Bring back Full URL in dashboard and reports

    This suggestion was provided over a year ago and appears to have been implemented in the previous release. The current manual even shows this option. However, the current release does not have this option available. It would be very useful to be able to view the full URL on certain user's activities.

  18. Include the Blocked category in Block Message on screen

    The customised message that appears on the screen when a user visits a blocked website needs to be more informative and included a place card holder variable for at least the category that the website that was blocked that it belonged too. Also including the URL in the message (another place card variable) would also help users when they contact us for advise etc.

    At present the message displayed is very bland and doesn't look very professional at all ie. no graphics or anything.

  19. IT-Techniker

    Check "Überprüfung der Exchange-Speichergröße" fails because of exceeded limit and I change the limit to fit again the check ist cleared in the check details and the server list (the both windows on the right side), but the customer tree on the left side is still red until the check is run again. This should be syncron either way (everything red or everything clear).

  20. Infected file can still be downloaded

    When the policy is set to WARN, if a file is found infected by the antivirus engine, the client still gets the option to save the file.

    I would prefer that the file would be blocked in this case or at least a third button with a red sign = "The file seems to be infected - save the file?"
