I'm in the process of starting up my own business and I would like to know when it comes to web content filtering what are my options? I can honestly admit I'm looking for a more user friendly system due to my limited computer experience. Currently i foresee the use of no more than three dozen PC towers under a single network using Windows 8 as an OS system. I was advised that Web Content Filter might be a good place to start,but as I have said before this is new territory for me. Any advise s much welcomed

You have a few options.
This can be done in software.
This can be done in hardware.
This can be done in "The Cloud".
Software is nice because it's quicker to download/test. Hardware is nice in that it doesn't require config on the individual computers. Cloud is nice because it doesn't require equipment. Any of these would work.
