    Question 5505 for web filtering

    We currently use a linux box to do our web filtering but I was thinking about moving that role to our asa 5505. Has anyone used the web filter module before? Thoughts? Suggestions?

    You need an external server to use the URL filter system in an ASA5505.

    They don't make a CSC SSC either but considering the price of the AIP SSC I wouldn't buy it because it'd be crazy expensive. The AIP SSC costs more than the ASA5505 unit itself.

    Trend Micro makes a filter. It's pretty nice.

    What are you trying to filter?
    Any traffic shaping?
    Content Filtering/logging?
    Antivirus filters?

    I have a number of Fortinet firewalls deployed.

    The have many solution from SMB to enterprise solutions that do a good job.

    Honestly, I didn't like the CSC CCM... from what I recall, it really was a one-policy-fits-all solution, meaning you cannot create different policies for different groups of users. What we ended up doing a lot was adding users to an ACL to not have their content filtered. Also, the CCIE from Berbee that installed it didn't follow the best practices out there for having the CSC not filter itself; it works for a while if you have it filter itself, and then the world is not happy (about 5-7 days).

    A basic 1.5 t1.

    We are going to stuck with the Linux box because of it's Active Directory integration and the ability to create custom policies based on user groups. Plus it is very easy to manage.

    Just content filtering and logging. We have an AV solution but our current filter has an AV plug-in as well.
