I suggest you ...

Display an 'Acceptable Use Policy' page without requiring login

Our customer is currently using WebMarshal for their web filtering solution and will be moving to the Sophos Web Appliance. One of the key Information Governance requirements is that they currently have a landing page when a user launches IE which advises users of the acceptable usage policy for web browsing over their network. This landing page is only displayed once every 24 hours per user session.

I believe there is no equivalent with the Sophos Web Appliance unless you use the 'Captive Portal' option which would prompt the user for authentication before they are allowed to Web browse.

        We have exactly the same issue moving from WebMarshal to Sophos Appliances. Although the above is a form of workaround, development of the Captive portal which allows the selection of a fully editable webpage rather than the very limiting 500 characters would be a much better workaround solution.
