Very Glad We Found BrowseControl

Since going live with BrowseControl, the number of requests that have come in about the "blocking" software not working has decreased dramatically. Before, it was almost a daily issue, and now it happens every now and then. This is fixed by restarting the Client Service.

Pros

BrowseControl is very simple to setup, and it is very easy to install on the client's computer. Also, the ongoing administration of the devices is easy to maintain.

Cons

The password keeps getting reset to the default value on our client's computers. This is a little concerning overall, but this is not a threat with our current client base.

Amazingly easy setup with great support

It allows my workers to use the internet and make money for the practice without distraction/temptation to use personal websites/email/shopping.

Pros

The support and ease of setup. As a “novice” I was able to set up with help from support in about an hour. Previous software took forever and didn’t work as advertised. This software worked right out of the box.

Cons

No cons to speak of, I have zero complaints about the software

Great software and support

We have used other web filtering and block programs before and CurrentWare has been the best for us and at a great price. Some of our workstations work via VPN and once the agent is installed it still does what we want.

Pros

The software actually does what was advertised and the support is great same day! We were able to have the software up and running on the same day with no issues or even a call/email to their support. We are able to have the control over web access on either the hardware level or user level. We chose user level since our users move from workstation to workstation. Plus we are able to create user groups that define a level of access and move the users between them as needed.

Cons

The only Con that comes to mind is sometime while upgrading the license needs to be reapplied. Not a big issue but only con I have.

Reasons for Choosing BrowseControl

Price and after testing the product itself.

BrowseControl

That's the one the company owns. We use to used a GFI blocker app which never worked properly. The policies were terrible to set at that moment. Furthermore, the annual fee was increased dramatically.

Pros

After a trial and some Help desk support calls, I learned how to use it. What I like most is the simplicity of its configuration.

Cons

When an update comes or is installed, some times is a bit messy the way to recover the new license and those stuff, in terms of time I'm speaking. Also, the Remote Client Install has never work in my case.
