GFI WebMonitor for ISA Server, which offers real-time HTTP/FTP monitoring, anti-virus and access control, was selected the winner in the Access Control category of the ISAserver.org Readers´ Choice Awards. The official award announcement was made today by leading ISA Server resource site via their ISAserver.org site.
“The traditional full-blown web proxy filters are cumbersome to install/administer and expensive to buy, while log file analyzers are awkward to use and do not allow for real-time monitoring and blocking. A tool like GFI WebMonitor provides instantaneous Internet access control in an easy-to-use and highly affordable manner,” said Andre Muscat, GFI Product Manager. “We´re very pleased to receive such backing from the visitors of ISAserver.org, a site which is considered by most to be the primary source for ISA Server information.”

The award serves as a mark of excellence, providing the ultimate recognition from peers within the industry.”
