Which one should i go for: Squid proxy server or Cyberoam?


I am new to the security softwares. We need a software that authenticates users and saves the logs and should not be easy to hack into. I was confused between squid proxy server and cyberoam. Which one should i use, Please suggest.

Hello and welcome to LQ.

Not sure they are the same type of deal exactly that I do know.

Who are the users and what are they logging in to or from may help us answer the question.

There may be some free software programs that may suite your needs. It may be that you'll need to purchase a dedicated firewall appliance and software suite.

Thanks for replying.

The users will be university students and the admin staff, they will be logging in from virtualized desktops.

Hi.

I assume you'll be testing them out first?
And, that's all I got on the subject...

have fun.
