  2. Audit log for admin changes

    There needs to be a way to track which admin made a specific change. I would start with the white/black lists and changes to the group/policy linking as this will allow flushing out intentional or accidental changes.

  3. Define subnet instead of IP Range

    In the actual stauts of GFI WebMonitor we can only define like 192.168.1-10, but we cannot define 192.168.1.1-15.254 or define an exact subnetmask like /23.

    It would be very useful if we could add specific subnets instead of the entire IP range

  5. Specific Report for Quota consumption

    Client would like to have a specific Report that would reflect exactly the quotas consumption for each user that has a quota active.
    At the moment, there is either Bandwidth or Surftime reports that reflects those values, but they are do not reflect exactly the quotas policies set for each user.

  6. 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...

  7. More flexibility in Report exclusions

    As per case number GFI-150422-335510 it seems it is impossible to exclude all subdomains for a specific domain using a wildcard, you have to manually specify all subdomains you want to exclude.
    In some cases there are hundreds of subdomains for example for the domain yammer.com we can see 73 different subdomains in our activity dashboard, to exclude all of them manually is painful task, therefore we need and easier way to do that.

  8. Full URL details in reports

    Ability to view full URL details in reports would be useful in some cases, currently there is no way to generate a report with full URL data.

  10. 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

    I know standalone version act as proxy server. We can use forward proxy function to integrate with BlueCoat. But I don’t think put this behind or after BlueCoat is a good idea since…

  14. 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)

  15. WebMonitor Consolidated Report

    Administrator should be able to view consolidated report as to the bandwidth usage, time spent and which website is being viewed.
    A single report should be able to carry out all these features.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
