Our journey with Safe Squid started with a burning need of Change in the existing Content filtering software solution, the subscription to which had expired. We were looking for a better solution to replace the existing one, and it looked like we would have to settle with a high cost Appliance based solution. This is when I came across SafeSquid.
In comparison with the existing solution, SafeSquid turned out to be superior in content filtering features, access control, content control, and all other aspects. Being a High tech University with large number of users, our need was for a solution that was cost effective, and suited our budgets. SafeSquid Advanced Edition, with perpetual license and unlimited users, suited us perfectly.
The features that has helped us to commendably control user access, and restrict access to unwanted content, are:-
* User Authentication
* Ability to bind users with IPs
* Allow time-based access, especially from student hostel
* Ability to create granular policies
* Broad categories of websites with regular updates
* Dynamic Keyword blocking
* Gateway level Anti Virus Security
It is a challenge for any technical team to settle down end- user expectations, after shifting to a new solution. We exceptionally appreciate the support of the SafeSquid TechSupport Team, and the SafeSquid Development team, who took great efforts to see to it that our issues were looked into instantly, and settled down.
We confidently claim that all our issues have been resolved to our expectation, and the installation stabilized. Of course, we can not forget the great learning curve that we went through, and still are, which makes us more vigilant and improves our knowledge about the behavior of proxies.
There are still scopes for improvements, and we have full faith that the SafeSquid development team will take care of them.
We were earlier using SurfControl before we came across SafeSquid.
We were fed up with the cost, licensing issues, support issues of SurfControl.
We feel SafeSquid is much better than other products in terms of Pricing, licensing, and mainly their support.
I really appreciate the kind of support the SafeSquid TechSupport provides.
The administrator requires only a short training to manage the product, which is really commendable.
To put it simply, we feel relaxed after implementing SafeSquid.
It is a SIMPLE, COST EFFECTIVE, RELIABLE, ROBUST product.
We strongly recommend SafeSquid for other admins.
