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.

Smoothwall SWG

Smoothwall SWG is very suitable in companies where there is a lot of staff and power to distribute the bandwidth by areas and give priority to the staff that requires better service. It's also well suited for business that require protection of their data and services as it is constantly monitoring the network and does not let them enter dangerous sites.

Smoothwall SWG

  • Real-time IP filtering is very favorable. That helps limit and restrict prohibited content.
  • Elaboration of personalized reports of the activities or pages that users visit to make new blocking rules to the pages most visited by users that may damage the functioning of the servers.

Cons

Securly Filter

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

  • It is necessary for them to have more material or a community that can help expand knowledge about this software so users can use 100% of their tools.

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

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.

Smoothwall SWG

Smoothwall SWG has many tools similar to pfSense but in my opinion I like the graphical environment of smoothwall swg more. It is more didactic and simple to use for new users. Also pfSense lacks the tools for monitoring in real time and the elaboration of reports that helps to perform statistics on sites visited.

Return on Investment

Securly Filter

  • It just works with limited management input!!
Kevin Ray | TrustRadius Reviewer

Smoothwall SWG

  • This software helps a lot and is very economical, since it is free and it can be installed in equipment with low performance. That is of importance to companies with little budget or who are just starting out in the market.
