My client is looking for some web filtering devices and I'm looking for some recommendations for virtual appliances. Anyone got any thoughts?

Do you have any more detailed requirements or goals? –  mfinni Mar 10 '11 at 18:14
    
Testing the waters. The client wants to prevent users from accessing social networking/streaming sites. Something affordable. We're looking to use a virtual appliance and am just looking to see what everyone out there is using and their opinions on it. –  Keith Weitz Mar 10 '11 at 20:13
    
OK - then what's the expected budget or range? –  mfinni Mar 10 '11 at 20:17
    
Sorry. 100-200 users and I'll be re-selling it to the client. I'm thinking approximately $5000 range max. –  Keith Weitz Mar 11 '11 at 13:54

Vyatta is an open-source firewall that can be deployed as a virtual device. I haven't had a chance to play with it, but I've been meaning to try it out in my development environment.
