No IT staff - need to still monitor end clients this is for you

All positive - I love that we spoke to real people, no phone tag. They have been nothing but responsive when we installed and created our account. Very positive and I highly recommend them! We have used similar products but they kept changing the product and increasing the cost, they would have no customer support and you could not even email them. WebTitan has excellent support and service, they helped us set it up, configure it, and install it. They are super responsive on email their products works for exactly what we want it to do. It was the best solution for us to monitor some end clients without limiting the rest of the network or having something we could not easily access. For us it is the prefect product, something non-IT staff can set up monitor and use daily to limit risks by a completely open internet policy. This was exactly what we needed!


General Manager

WebTitan Integration with my Active Directory Server is a game changer for me

What do you like best about WebTitan Web Filter? I am able to set access policies that fit each user and fit different groups. I have a lot of control when used in conjunction with my router DNS settings and my Active Directory server. The age ranges using our computers is from 9 to 43 to being able to customize and group at the same time saves a tremendous amount of oversight effort and leaves enough flexibility to meet all our needs. What problems is WebTitan Web Filter solving and how is that benefiting you? Content filtering and managing available content during productivity hours.
