Continuing its status as the only Internet filtering and management product built specifically for filtering on ISA 2004/06, Chaperon for ISA 2004/06 builds upon its predecessor's features and capabilities to bring you an even more robust Internet management system. Chaperon takes advantage of ISA Server's ability to have multiple policies and larger rule sets. Other benefits include remote management, faster unblocking, and tight integration with Active Directory.
ISA Server 2004 program rocks...
Their new isa 2004 program installs without a hitch (although the first load of the filter takes some time) and runs great. It fully supports the features of isa 2004. Best I've seen yet. Haven't tried the tech support... but then I haven't required it eiter. Very pleased to see a product that just works!
Good Product but...
There are issues related to this product and Active Directory that they are presently working to resolve. They work on a subscription basis and for a Non-Active Directory ISA box they are great. It's the AD intergrated that has issues. Potential for degrading your Site Link connections. If they fix the manner by which their software updates the destination sets this would be a no brainer "5".
comments for Chaperon 2000
Great product, well priced. As far as support; although they CURRENTLY do not have any users manuals, they utilize WebEx on-line meeting technology to directly interact with the product, taking out a LOT of the guessing/back and forth/let me take a look/I'll get back to you on that - they just do it. And upon request will provide a detailed explanation of what they did and why. Tech support is ALWAYS willing to go the extra mile and keep digging until they resolve the issue. Tech support will work closely with the programmers and never come back with an "I don't know" answer.
If you think their "support is more than lousy.." then you OBVIOUSLY haven't utilized it.
Give it a try! The product and the support. I've learned a lot about their product by just asking!!
