Netscape and Microsoft have a new foe in the proxy server wars-Oracle Proxy Server 1.0. The new product, available for NT and Sun Solaris, filters and caches Web content locally, thereby providing your network users with fast, secure access to Web pages. It supports FTP, HTTP and Gopher protocols; encrypted traffic; and Spyglass SurfWatch filtering, which blocks searches, queries and URLs that contain prohibited content.
WebSense for Microsoft Proxy Server
If you can't beat Microsoft Proxy Server, enhance it. That's the theory behind WebSense, an Internet screening system that's fully integrated with Proxy Server. It can monitor or block network traffic to Internet sites that you deem objectionable or inappropriate for business use. It requires NT 4.0 with at least Service Pack 2 and Microsoft Proxy Server.

This utility, developed by several former Novell engineers, lets you simultaneously deploy software across dozens of networked workstations. A Control Console lets you reboot any machine on your network. Another component, called ImageBlaster Pro, lets you capture a snapshot image of one hard drive and copy it to other hard drives on your network. LabExpert is positioned for classrooms, student labs and test environments that require rapid software deployments on a regular basis. KeyLabs says the program is also ideal for rapidly deploying NT or Win95 across corporate desktops.
$700 for 10 nodes
