Review of TrafficFilter: A Quota Enforcement Tool for ISA Server
A Russian Programmer has developed a filter for ISA Server which can restrict users Internet access based on MB/KB. TrafficFilter - is a server-based filtering solution that provides customizable control of Internet access. It enables management to block or allow workers' access to Internet, based on user bandwidth quota policy. TrafficFilter assigns a Bandwidth Quota on a per-user basis.
For example: user 'John' is allowed to download 500 MB a month, and after this he is denied access to the Internet. User 'Jane' is assigned a quote of 10 MB per-day; if she goes over 10 MB that day, she is denied further access to the Web Proxy service.

- Active Directory Support - native or mixed
- Real-Time Monitoring
