"The best program that provides a layer of protection without equal."

What do you like best?

I really like this system because it provides one of the best layers of protection for the servers and computers of my business, bringing almost zero spam emails in my mail tray. This system is very simple to configure however, I could do it under the tutelage of the technical support team, in order to make an optimal configuration.

I also congratulate the team of designers of this system for its friendly and versatile interface with a range of options and filters in each function, which allow me to be able to perform a better management on the web, I can also perform more detailed searches in order to obtain Excellent information. This system has a simple and very useful reporting.

If we start talking about the price, I can say it is crazy, compared to other systems that do much less than WebTitan and are extremely expensive. I really like the attention provided by your customer service team, they are very attentive, they are always on the lookout to correct any problem that may arise with the system.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, at the beginning I felt overwhelmed by the amount of functions, it has, in which I did not know what to do or where to start, but after having communicated with the technical support team, that feeling stopped and I began to understand much more this great tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I definitely recommend this system a lot and I think it is necessary to say that this system is vital for all businesses. If you want to know more about it you can have your trial version for a limited time and so you can evaluate it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this system allows me to manage access to the web of my work team, based on the scale or pyramid of hierarchy, this because the base members of my team do not lose focus on the performance of their tasks and my managers, as they need more information on the web, I grant them a broader access to the execution of their tasks.

"Simple to use and effective web filter for my clients at a good price"

What do you like best?

Extremely quick and easy to setup users/locations. A substantial list of filter categories to choose from makes it simple to begin filtering web traffic straight away, but the granularity of being able to have a different profile for each location with white/blacklists makes it even better for the end users. The simple web interface makes finding the the information about what has been filtered from each location very easy and reporting is straight forward.

What do you dislike?

So for I have not found anything to cry about when it comes to WebTitan, although I have not used, nor do I have a need for the some of the more advanced features, such as AD integration, It has done all that I have asked of it very well indeed. As a result of my experience with WebTitan, I am also considering their SpamTitan product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have any concerns or questions, give them a call. I did and wasn't disappointed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

web security, end user productivity

"Simple to install and easy to configure, but still very powerful"

What do you like best?

We had three requirements for a web gateway/proxy server:

1. It must be able to integrate with Active Directory to avoid users entering another set of credentials.

2. It must be possible to place users in specific groups of defined levels of access.

3. Reporting must be simple and clear to be able to provide feedback to management.

WebTitan did all three of these with little hassle.

What do you dislike?

Some of the configuration items could be described better in the documentation, like the authentication methods. Suggestions and when to use what option would go a long way.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Download the trial and install it. We had it up and running in under 2 hours from when we started the download. It is the best way to see if it will meet your needs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Users can spend allot of time on websites that results in WAN connections to be misused. With WebTitan we have much better control over this.

"WebTitan is a great web access control/logging tool for businesses of any size"

What do you like best?

The granular control it allows you to have over what people can and cannot access is unlike any other product I have used or evaluated. Being able to tie into Active Directory groups is great. And their support is extremely helpful when needed.

What do you dislike?

Usually installation of a new instance cannot be done without some intervention from support. There is generally some issue that pops up that support has to resolve. Unable to set the day/time of day that definition updates download to the machine. We've had a few instances where the whole DB gets corrupted and the VM has to be re-built and restored.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Total web access control and logging for my users. We have a very wide range of web access needs where some users have ALL internet access blocked other than a whitelist. And some have all web access allowed other than a blacklist. And some just get wide open web access. I can accomplish that for everyone and still get all traffic logged and reports generated for visibility.

"Best cloud spam and malware block for e-mail servers"

What do you like best?

It just works. Can be setup to be simple or indepth for each user. Takes a major load off of your e-mail server by limiting the amount of incoming spam it has to deal with. If you run an in-house e-mail server on a limited connection or have other performance issues, this will help out a lot.

What do you dislike?

The admin setup can be a bit confusing at times. But it does add flexibility to their system, so a bit hard to knock it on that. End user training also is a consideration. Anti-Virus is good but could be a bit better too.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be ready for some consideration on your setup for this product. You can setup users individually or just use a blanket coverage of how spam is handled. Setting up users can be a chore, and training is a must.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have an in house e-mail server and it was just getting too much for it to handle all the spam, let alone the proper e-mail we were getting. We set this up and the difference was amazing. Reduced the load to 1/3 of was it was before, allowing us to extend the life of our hardware and also not have to consider more expensive internet connectivity.

"Great product at a fraction of competitors price."

What do you like best?

It's very easy to use and configure from the web interface. WebTitan is a fraction of the cost of other products like Cisco Cloud, and yet provides much the same protection. I can manage users network wide. Filter Website by category and custom lists. WT is blocking most if not all of our spam and malware

What do you dislike?

The on the go software addition (which allows filter customization on a per user basis) could have better mac support but thats on the way I'm told.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a product to filter your entire network both on and off site and you don't have the budget to waist on products 10 times the price, WebTitan is for you.;

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have our mail server blacklist and we're dealing with a rash of botnet style attacks. WebTitan solves the issue within minutes of enabled it network wide.

"Good, Economical and of quality!"

What do you like best?

El que WebTitan sea en la nube y no deba gastar dinero en costosos hardware físicos, y por supuesto los filtros de DNS que son de mucha importancia en cualquier web.

What do you dislike?

En un principio me costo un poco configurar de manera correcta los DNS y otros ajustes, pero con suerte recibí ayuda y todo va bien desde allí

Recommendations to others considering the product:

WebTitan offers a quality service at a price, which in my opinion, is very good value for money, also once you understand how it works it will become very easy to configure it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Definitivamente el filtrado web con DNS, eso es algo sumamente importante para la seguridad de nuestro sistema y WebTitan ha podido ser de mucha ayuda con eso.

"Best web proxy I ever used"

What do you like best?

- LDAP authentication, profiles work regardless the user IP address

- can filter encrypted connections

- MANY options for access policy and filtering

- powerful reporting

- updates for category definitions and antivirus

- clear interface, easy to setup and maintain

- robust system, never crash

What do you dislike?

- only 8 custom categories can be defined

- time restrictions not apply to global filtering settings

- antivirus engine not among the best

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I use it on premise, for cloud subscription you must give it a try.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can apply company policies for web access restrictions and isolate all the workstations from the Internet by allowing access only through proxy for some applications only (e.g. browser). Also can avoid (un)intentional access to malicious sites.

"Clunky and not pro friendly, but gets the job done"

What do you like best?

When it works, it works. I like the AD integration, allowing the use of profiles to create pseudo ACL's to the web based on filtering preferences. On the Go agent is an extremely awesome feature. Employees would just take work assets home and bypass the web filter, but the OTG Agent stops this as it takes over DNS wherever the device goes and applies the filtering rules. ]

The cloud aspect is nice being able to log into the system from anywhere to provide assistance is tantamount to SLA's

What do you dislike?

1. Inability to filter by IP address as well as AD

2. more intuitive tools, like the test feature, it would be nice to be able to select the profile you'd like to test against instead of having to use the ip address of the user (but you can't filter by IP so this seems broken to me)

3.WMI/RPC needs to be running for this system to function properly - this does open security concerns in a production environment some people may be unaware of.

4. whitelisting websites is tedious and labor intensive, if you have multiple profiles and need to whitelist a site, say company wide (which involves multiple profiles), it needs to be added to each one individually. It would be nice if you could select all the profiles to apply a URL to when whitelisting.

5. Mass imports for whitelists overwrites the entire profile instead of the delta - - EXTREMELY ANNOYING

6. Only a single login for the cloud portal - not conducive to a strong CSF when they're multiple techs who need access to the platform

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Research the product. WMI/RPC is required for this implementation to function completely, not really discussed in the sales pitch

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SECURITY, this is the main problem. Most Cybersecurity incidents happen from the inside, meaning someone goes somewhere they shouldn't and downloads something nefarious.

"Switching from Umbrella to WebTitan has saved us a lot of time"

What do you like best?

The best part of WebTitan for us is the interface. Where the Umbrella interface had been "modernized" to make it more "visually appealing" it also made it very annoying to use for quick info. The WebTitan interface lets me login, check all the blocked traffic for the day, and log back out faster than I could even get the view filters set in Umbrella.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to dislike because it fits the way we want to work with the info. The one thing that could be improved is a view filter that allows me to see every IP that attempted to visit a specific domain without having to run a report to get that info.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to log in quickly, check the blocklist, and get out without wasting a lot of time, this is great. You can start a trial to see if it works for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Umbrella interface had become so time-consuming to work with that we just stopped bothering unless there was an emergency. With WebTitan, the interface is so quick to navigate and scroll through the info I need that I have started logging in several times a day to check on things quickly. This has drastically improved our response time to potential issues with clients.

"Decent, Cheap web filtering"

What do you like best?

The web filtering uses DNS as opposed to hardware, so there isn't any bandwidth overhead. On top of not having to employ expensive physical hardware, that's a huge plus.

What do you dislike?

The whitelist keys do not always function properly. We didn't have a lot of success in creating keys on the endpoint to allow certain websites. This is bypassed by whitelisting the site for the policy. We reached out to the support team and they were able to resolve the issue with some troubleshooting, but the solution isn't something most end users could handle, meaning we'd have to get an IT staff person to permit it (as opposed to a manager) so there is some management overhead there.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking for a basic DNS based web filter this is a good option. Support was a little slow but the price wasn't as high as other available options. For a small business, this is a good solution.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Web filtering for our corporate office that is more strict than other areas of the business.

"I have been very pleased with the WebTitan filtering product and service provided."

What do you like best?

The product works very well. I have tested other DNS filtering services and found WebTitan to be the best I have tried in terms of filtering out adult search results and images.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, I have been very happy with the WebTitan product and service.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Before selecting WebTitan, I review the capabilities of around 6 DNS based web filtering services. I initially tested other vendor systems and found them to be lacking in terms of not filtering all types of internet searches. When testing WebTitan, I have never experienced a problem where filtering does not work for both web searching and image provision.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a leisure company whose customers are of all ages. We use the WebTitan filtering solution to remove adult content from our free to use WiFi service.

"Most widely used powerful, outstanding and inexpensive software. "

What do you like best?

When I write about WebTitan’s pros, they are really uncountable. It provides really easier and quick ways of blocking malicious content and spam. With the help of this software viruses can be easily minimized. In order to have granular control over user web filtering, this software is considered to be the best among all. As far as administrative perspective is concerned, this software no doubt provides easy ways. Really superb product through which one can easily kick out bad stuff.

What do you dislike?

One of the cons is that this software do not provide several updates. Blacklisting TLD's through this software seems to be impossible which is considered to be the drawback of this software.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ultimately I can say this software is really effective that has provided much convenience and fulfill all web filtering issues across my organization.

"Excellent web proxy"

What do you like best?

Extremely easy to use and easy to setup. Integration with our network was very simple as well. We were looking for a product that had a informative dashboard and an easy way to setup rules. This was the perfect product for us.

What do you dislike?

slower loading times for review of activity of users in our office. Also occasionally needs to be rebooted as internet access is blocked after extended up-time of the server.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for an effective solution that meets your price requirements as well as ease of administration, webtitan is a perfect product for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using this product to limit internal users from accessing restricted sites. We also use this product to audit activity for specific users in our office.

It was just so easy to setup and worked right out of the box. The URL database is very comprehensive too so we can be sure our network is safe. The sales and after support has been very good too.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing I didn't like about the product really .

Recommendations to others considering the product:

"Went well initially..."

What do you like best?

Agent deployment was hassle free. Logging features and dashboard provided good insight with relevant information. Reports were easily configurable and straightforward.

What do you dislike?

Customer support was difficult to communicate with and usually seemed disinterested. Limited scope with regards to troubleshooting. Follow-up often requires reminders and in one case completely ceased when no canned solutions or initial troubleshooting steps worked.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Products and services work well however be prepared for long days and nights performing troubleshooting on your own, if something goes awry. Recommend going month to month vs a long term contract until satisfied that their services meet your organizational requirements and goals. Do not recommend unless integrating with existing Active Directory structure.

"Safe surfing for companies"

What do you like best?

The security of our network. If a virus or other malware tries to fool a user, we get a error message and not a virus in our computer. We can choose which web sites and category we want to stop for our users.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike. Some users want to se pages which the web titan has banned. Then if this is something we want to whitelist I need to log in to fix this. It is easy, but sometimes it is a lot of questions regarding this

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Safer companie network, and ease of mind for me.

"Very nice product with minor inconveniences"

What do you like best?

I like the simple, easy to navigate GUI, that makes finding everything perfectly easy. The functionality we wanted is mostly available. It is very nice to be able to customize the GUI and add our own Logo.

What do you dislike?

The Outlook addon for SpamTitan isnt very user friendly. Opposed to the rest of the software, it doesnt seem very polished. You cant let specific users release mails marked as viruses, only the entire domain.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use a free trial before to make sure the product is right for you

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted Security, which is excactly what we got. Mostly everything we wanted to do is availible. We also got a way better of understanding on how SPAM would affect our company without SpamTitan

"Simple, easy to use yet powerful web filter"

What do you like best?

Deployment couldn't be easier and management is very straightforward. In the simplest form you just need to point your DNS forwarders to their DNS server and add your location IP to the portal.

For roaming users or locations with a dynamic IP a lightweight agent is included for free.

Active Directory integration adds user level reporting and the VM required is also included.

What do you dislike?

For AD integration an on-premise proxy is required. I would like to see the proxy eliminated and LDAP direct to the cloud.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give their trial a go. You won't be disappointed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Primarily security. Blocking malware infected websites and links in phishing emails.

"Spam Filtering with Intelligence"

What do you like best?

The ability to filter specific URL sets based on the users using them. Also it reduced our SPAM to near zero for our Exchange On-Premise users!

What do you dislike?

My only complaint is that it can take some tweaking to get the spam filters just right. We had a couple of false positives when we started but after about a month the system corrected itself.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had alot of phishing and spam emails flooding our shared mult-tenant environment which we use Exchange on-premise for compliance reasons. This solution provides a drop in solutions which can be deployed in AWS with very little configuration.

What do you like best?

The ease of access using the solution, and the ease-of-mind support form the vendor. When purchasing a solution/product from anybody, knowing you're buying from people who never fail to put up a good face can really influence your decision. On the basis of this, I would recommend WebTitan to a friend or colleague.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, as I would like to write anything I dislike about WebTitan I am unable to. That's down to the fact that I have not being experiencing the solution long enough to name any faults.

The service is very intuitive and easy to use- I'm using it as an MSP provider and the integration with the API is simple, well documented and supported. Makes it much easier to use and offer it to our customers

What do you dislike?

The oauth1 authentication mechanism is not as intuitive in general. This made my experience at the beginning very frustrating. I'd suggest looking into more solutions for third party API authentications that are still secured but are easier to use

"Comprehensive protection at a reasonable price."

What do you like best?

I really love the amount of options you have in protecting your network. There seems to be an almost endless granularity in filtering.

What do you dislike?

As we are a small company, the pricing did not seem to fit our needs. You need to uphold a minimum number of accounts to even have the service. This is the only thing that turned us away.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be prepared to have a lot of accounts to get the best pricing.

We love the price of WebTitan. We needed a web content filtering solution and when compared to the competition WebTitan offered the same features but for far less.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend WebTitan.

"WebTitan fills an important security gap for the City of Wenatchee"

Ease of configuration. Simplicity of the product.

What do you dislike?

NA. The product was simple to setup and works well. We modified the block screen but that was about it.

Denying DNS resolution to known compromised or malicious sites was not part of our security strategy. We secure our network using Firewalls, IDS/IPS, Antivirus and AntiMalware and now DNS filtering.
