Likelihood to Recommend

FortiGuard Web Filtering Service

I recommend FortiGuard [Web Filtering Service] for small and medium businesses. It is well suited if you need to block bad websites like pornography, so I especially recommend using it for schools. For example, you can implement a firewall between the public internet and your local network of computer labs, students, and staff.

Securly Filter

As I stated earlier, if you have iPads in a 1 to 1 usage, [Securly Filter] is your best filter. Students cannot break it or mess with any settings on a device that has an MDM setup.

Pros

FortiGuard Web Filtering Service

  • The logging provided in FortiGuard Web Filtering Services is fantastic. It allows you to capture all requisite information. I personally have my log view set to show address accessed, time browsed, user, machine, all IP addresses involved, computer name, site Category, and the action taken.
  • In 4 years I have had to report 6 incorrect website ratings. Every time I've reported an issue, there has been an update to the site listing by the next morning.
  • Creating separate rule sets is simple, allowing for easy management of different groups of users.

Cons

FortiGuard Web Filtering Service

  • Interface was not easy for some other users, but after they got it down, it worked well.
  • Took a little while to get help from support. Had to call the project manager to get help. But they took care of the issue after the fact.

Securly Filter

  • URL lookup tool not available.
  • Would be nice to have a scheduling feature to change filtering policies/profiles based on time.

Took a little longer for support to get our problem solved, but when the upper tier tech support was involved, we got excellent customer support.

I don't like giving a 10 since everyone always has room for improvement, and while Securly is doing an awesome job, there is still room for improvement across the board.

Alternatives Considered

FortiGuard Web Filtering Service

We selected FortiGuard Web Filtering because it came in the service bundle with our FortiGate unit. After testing the service for a couple of months, we disabled the web filtering that was running on our client machines and have not looked back. It's been easy to manage, effective, and fast. There isn't much more you can ask for from a filtering solution.

Securly Filter

Securly has a huge advantage over network filters when dealing with the past year of at home learning and take home device programs. It works as well as other device based filters, and it's an exceptionally good deal if you were able to lock in reduced pricing from previous years.
