Internet Filters

Hey Darren,

  I don't have much expertise with wireless stuff in the enterprise, but for the most part I stick with Cisco in that arena.  As for Internet content filters, I really like OpenDNS for a bare-bones, outsourced, free solution.  I use it both at home and at work.  If you want an appliance in-house that you can tweak, I'm a big fan of Untangle. It's a combination of free, open source, and commercial subscription components. (check out our interview with their Founder and CTO)  I've also used DansGuardian both at home and at work.  It's a little clunky to manage, but very functional.

Wireless Network...

I would recommend Aruba Networks Wireless Controller and Access Points. We installed a controller and 75 APs in our school district last summer...very secure and installation is simple.

We too have Aruba controllers and AP's setup on our campuses. They do work and we haven't had any issues with them. We had a company set them up and install them, so we haven't had to touch them or change any configs. However, I have logged in the web app several times and I have to say that it seems that without being a wireless expert, I don't feel as I can do too much config changes. That is my biggest complaint about Aruba.

I sat through a webinar with Meraki last week. I was very excited about their wireless AP's. They have a cloud managed system, so no on site controllers to manage. The interface is very, very easy to use.
