Browse control as part of our security solution

We use Browse control and other CurrentWare products as an essential part of our security practices. I like the product, and it works great. We have utilized CurrentWare for the last eight years, and I've no complaints. Responsive support and willing to take feedback and suggestions. Highly recommended

Pros

Browsing control settings per user with URL white and black lists. File download control

Cons

File download control wouldn't work with HTTPS. Doesn't have the ability to request to open a site on the block page, like an unblock button which will trigger an email to the admin, it does include an email link on pages that are within the blocked URL list but not for those in blocked categories

Response from CurrentWare

Thank you for your 5-star review! I appreciate your honest feedback. I'm happy to report that we'll be introducing HTTPS download control in a future version. Thank you for bringing the category filter's need to have a "request URL unblock" feature that matches the URL filter, I have reported this to our development team and they will add it to our product roadmap. If you get in touch with our support team we will notify you personally when this feature becomes available!

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.

Reasons for switching to BrowseControl

WebTitan kept blocking our client's computers due to the fact that it could not remote update when the local IP address changed. This occurred despite the fact that they market the product as being able to do so.

Response from CurrentWare

Hey Jude, Thanks for the great feedback! We appreciate it. Regards, The CurrentWare Team

Works Well, Great Support

The system works very well. Features like being able to provide a custom block screen are great. Being able to rename the system from the actual PC name helps to better identify the system in the admin interface. You can create a custom installer for client systems. It's easy to update the client settings, and to import settings from an existing client to a new one.

Pros

The software is easy to distribute to client systems.

Cons

The administrative software can be slow and a little bit cumbersome. The list of systems is missing a search or an easy way to filter the full list of installed systems. This may have changed with the newer web based interface.

Reasons for switching to BrowseControl

Price was a large part of making the switch. BrowseControl is very reasonably priced. The software works for its intended purpose. The staff is very responsive and friendly.

Response from CurrentWare

Thank you for your review, Ethan! I'm happy to report that the new web console includes a PC/User search function to make management easier. Feel free to check out the live demo to see the search function in action: https://www.currentware.com/demo/

Lucky to find this!

I am really lucky to find this out. COOL one. Kudos to developers.

Pros

Easy to install in Server and Client Workspace. Its a Web based application, has lot of features like allowing or disallowing the internet access at the scheduled time and lot more.

Cons

I feel like its a complete feature rich software already, sufficient for Small and Mid Scale companies.

Reasons for choosing BrowseControl

More feature than the alternative product like Whitelisting only the required sites by blacklisted all other sites.

Response from CurrentWare

Thank you for the great feedback, we're glad BrowseControl is meeting your needs. Regards, The CurrentWare Team

Software that Punches above it's weight

the purchase and on boarding process was very smooth and customer support is very efficient . I had an executive who helped with the renewals although it was a non working day in his country , I would recommend it to anybody.

Pros

The software is easy to install and was cheap to purchase and Cost wise very high ROI. What we especially like about the product is the ease of report generation and monitoring such that it could be taught to no technical staff like the HR executive for instance. It required very less resources and licensing model is simple

Cons

Interfaces although easy to use feels a bit outdated

Reasons for choosing BrowseControl

Primarily Cost

Response from CurrentWare
