Keep unwanted Web Content out of your environment

My initial requirement to use a Web Filtering product was related to protect my family from bad stuff, or better described as unwanted web stuff. It was quiet easy to find products with parental control or web blocking technology, but all of those products are either running on every single workstation or restrict web content right in front of my router for all users. This leads to restrict all of them or the products are far too expensive for my budget. A "Go No-Go" feature was the fact, to allow certain web access to some users, while other users are not allowed to access these websites. Basically a group and / or individual policy driven profiling would be the best fit. I found a product, which is very well designed to run in large environments, but for my personal use, I only need to protect a handful people.
