Well i guess you can configure your server to limit the file sizes the files employees are downloading. Also i think you can restrict certain file types. Also you can probably chat monitoring software.
i am really i couldnot express what i wanted like a list of firewall hardware so i can select which one to buy for a small business network.....
OR some one can advice me with firewall hardware to buy for a company with 15 to 20 users which has a HP server Router US Robotics, switch, and terminal server. Finally we have symantec anti virus... but recently we attacked by virus and secondly we want to restrict user from downloading music, movies, games.......
If a low cost router/firewall solution does not work because of the limited content control capabilities, you may want to try a free linux-based dedicated firewall solution like IPCOP (
). It will run on relatively modest PC hardware so you can use any old Pentium PCs you may have lying around.
