Edith,

Can you use DNS filtering for your network?  (Point all your traffic to a web based DNS that also does filtering).  Instead of another appliance or service.

We recently switched from an Iprism filtering unit to a Barracuda web filter. Both are highly configurable, and both connect to Active Directory (a huge help to be able to use existing groups and OU's). The Barracuda unit has better overall throughput than our old Iprism, and works well with the Barracuda firewall. 

Barracuda requires yearly subscriptions to updates, and has optional subscriptions for overnight replacement and remote support.

We just recently switched from free filtering to Cisco Umbrella in Addison Central.  We purchased the version that integrates with Active Directory.  So far we are happy, although it is highly configurable and we're still tweaking it.  Not cheap though.

Web-filters to replace our free, but no longer filtering Untangle service?    Yes, I realize that the days of free are over. We have 140 Chromebooks, 2 PCs, 25 teacher laptops, and 100 iPads.

Suggest away.
