  1. alphabetic listing of entries in policies

    Can the listed entries for say 'users applied to' and even 'allowed sites' be sorted alphabetically.. just to make it easier to check if a user is present.. or a site has been entered..
    especially if there are a lot!
    thanks
    AJ

  2. Drill Down from Dashboard

    Would love to see the ability to drill down into statistics from the WebMonitor Dashboard.

    Examples:
    Alerts - Click on alert to see exactly what the alert was for
    Web Security Status - Click on numbers to see all the recorded web security blocked sites/threats/viruses
    WebFilter Status - Click on numbers to see all the recorded blocks/warnings/quarantines

  3. Regular expression and temporarily filtering

    At moment of writing there is no option to filter based on regular expression and tempoarily blocked. Is this on any roadmap or release-program (308900)

  4. Dashboardfilter on content type

    In webmon it would be nice to be able to filter based on contentype. When people are killing bandwidth in a large organisation, it might be that they are watching a movie. Now in SR1 you need to find the user, and then 'kill the culprit'.
    If I could filter based on content-type I can terminate all video-streams, application downloads, etc

  5. Change the Quota Timeout Block Screen

    When a user times out have it display a different page, instead of "You have been blocked from downloading this file since it breaches a security policy." because they are not downloading a file. They have just simply hit their browsing time for the day

    Something like "You have reached your allotted miscellaneous browsing time for the day."

  7. multiple nic's

    Hi,

    Is there anyway to tell "GFI WEBMONITOR 2012R3" to scan only one ethernet adapter instead of all the ethernet adapters installed\configured at the TMG machine.

    For Example: TMG server with 4 Ethernet Adapters and only one adapter\network should get scanned with "GFI WEBMONITOR".

    Thanks

  8. Eliminate Referral Sites & Ads from WebMonitor Surf Time Report

    My client wants to know what websites his employees visit and when. The Surf Time Report works, but includes referral sites & advertisements which is misleading to the person reviewing the report. For example, the report may show facebook.com because the employee was on a business-related site that included an ad for facebook, but the employee didn't actually go to facebook.com. Very misleading and difficult to interpret the report. It's especially bad for the employee being falsely accused of browsing where (s)he shouldn't be browsing during business hours.

  9. Sort WebMonitor Surf Time Report by time-of-day First Hit column

    I would like the "First Hit" column in the WebMonitor Surf Time Report to be sortable ascending / descending in the WebMonitor Management Console. Currently, the only way to do so is to export the report results to Excel and then sort.

  10. specify how long the warn and allow prompt resets

    Currently if you set the warn and allow flag in a policy.. it will warn once only for the whole day..
    maybe in the next release there could be the option to specify a reset time..
    admins might want to give some users 10 mins after the prompt then re-prompt on subsequent visits.. or even prompt every time for certain sites.. (maybe some PC's are communal.. so, as it stands,1 person is prompted.. but the next is not.. as is with generic logins)
    just a thought..

  11. Web Filtering

    Re-introduce the web filtering for 3rd party Advertising.
    When surfing the net , avoid 3rd party adverts opening or if they do open it says blocked by vipre.
    The bad website filtering is good but does not block all gambling/ looking for love adverts opening up.

  14. Render web page correctly that contain blocked reference domains

    When a user attempts to connect to a page with a site request, I would like for it to fully load the page even if related contents from other blocked domains are requested. This will allow for the page to appear fully, and not show as broken to the user.
    If one of the requested domains are then attempted by user selection on the page displayed, it should be actioned as per the Web Filtering Policy in place.

    In essence, the referred domain requested by the initial transaction will be processed and filtered differently than a primary domain request.

  15. Allow clone of Default Policies

    Assuming we do not add an ignore field to each category (as per my previous suggestion) then we need the ability to clone the default so I can make a single change, i.e. open or close a single category, rather than having to open and close the correct categories

  16. Sort Apple wpad or PAC file issues

    All apple products seem to default to "no proxy settings", i.e. unlike Microsoft which defaults all browsers and connections to Auto Detect Proxy settings Apple doesn't.

    This is to speed up connection time but also is a huge security loop hole. Now I'm NOT expecting GFI to be able to fix the inherant setup of Apple products but investigate a work around for visiting clients with Apple products so I can still stop them using undesirable sites.

    This is ONLY an issue with the GFI WebMonitor running in Simple Proxy mode, in gateway all traffic is routed regardless so you…

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
