Untangle Web Filter flaws and problems | BVA INC. emPowering Your IT –

When it comes to web filtering, there are several different solutions available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. One popular solution is Untangle Web Filter, known for its affordability.

Unfortunately, this affordability comes at a cost. The free version of Untangle Web Filter omits some crucial enterprise features, including Microsoft Active Directory integration and ongoing live support. In addition, many features included in the paid-for version of the software lack the sophistication of their enterprise-focused competitors. User permissions and roles are less flexible, and reporting lacks granular options such as per-host output.

While Untangle Web Filter offers robust filtering, its features will need to significantly improve to meet the real world demands of business.
