Hello,


I am looking in incorporating a Mac Pro with Lion Server in my company as I have about 20 Macs already installed, I was wondering if there are any MailMarshal and WebMarshal equivalent software which I can use on the Mac Pro Server to control the mail flow and the Web flow in my company, I would be greatly appreciated if anyone could help!


This is going to be applied on a family library, so controlling what the kids can search and visit on the web is critical, and also what the staff can send email wise and block unwanted words from being typed/received through email, is there really no app out there that can help me with this? Mail and Web Marshal work brilliantly on PC, please let me know if you guys know of any third part software I can purchase to achieve this,

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    What's your budget? There are numerous options, but it's not clear whether you're looking/hoping to spend $0 or $10,000

     

    About the best all-round product is InterGate which is licensed by the number of users. It can get expensive at large numbers, but it isn't clear whether that's a problem for you or not. It might also be overkill if you're only concerned about web and mail, and aren't concerned about other protocols (IM, P2P, chat, etc.)

    Do you think InterGate will be able to allow me to monitor and control web and mail security by setting up restrictions on certain sites and block profanity words and block malicious mail from being sent and received?

     

    I suggest you read the Intergate site since it answers most of your questions - it is installed as a gateway device, that all network clients funnel their traffic through. There's no client-side component.

     

    As for preventing 'malicious mail', I don't think there's any application, anywhere that can do that. Malicious activity implies intent, and, to date, desktop computers have not proven adept at discerning intent. Keyword filtering, on the other hand, is trivial, but not in the same league.

     

    we are debating whether installing a Mac Server or a Windows server to control the Macs within the building, can you advise that it will end up being more efficient or just stick with Mac

     

    If your network is predominately Mac-based, it seems counter-intuitive to install a Windows-based system to control them. That said, if you know of a product that meets your needs and is Windows-only, then maybe that is your better choice. No one here can answer that question for you, especially since there are different levels of 'control' you might be considering.
