London, UK – GFI WebMonitor for ISA Server, which offers real-time HTTP/FTP monitoring, antivirus and access control, was selected the winner in the Access Control category of the ISAserver.org Readers’ Choice Awards. The official award announcement was made today by leading ISA Server resource site via their ISAserver.org site.
“The traditional full-blown web proxy filters are cumbersome to install/administer and expensive to buy, while log file analyzers are awkward to use and do not allow for real-time monitoring and blocking. A tool like GFI WebMonitor provides instantaneous Internet access control in an easy-to-use and highly affordable manner,” said Andre Muscat, GFI Product Manager. “We're very pleased to receive such backing from the visitors of ISAserver.org, a site which is considered by most to be the primary source for ISA Server information.”
“Our Reader’s Choice Awards give visitors to our site the opportunity to vote for the products they view as the very best in their respective category,” said Sean Buttigieg, ISAserver.org Manager. “ISAserver.org users are specialists in their field who encounter various solutions for ISA Server at the workplace. The award serves as a mark of excellence, providing the ultimate recognition from peers within the industry.”
ISAserver.org conducts bi-monthly polls to discover which product is preferred by ISA Server administrators in a particular category of third party solutions for Microsoft ISA Server. The awards draw a huge response per category and are based entirely on the visitors’ votes. ISAserver.org users can submit their votes for the current Readers' Award poll in the site’s left-hand bar.
GFI WebMonitor for ISA Server also received the Silver Award from ISAserver.org in January.

The review praised the product's "useful web access and monitoring features", which includes the ability to "monitor user activity in real-time", "quickly view a URL history", "block access to adult web sites/domains" and "check all web and web proxy mediated FTP downloads".
