CyberSieve is a piece of Internet monitoring equipment and
parental control software.
When first started, you are greeted by a getting started screen which walks you through some of the basic steps of setting up the program. You start by setting up user names and user groups. Once that is done, you can set up things like what times and for how long the Internet can be accessed, or what websites can be viewed and which can't.
While running, the program keeps a log of what warnings were created which you can view so you know if anyone has been naughty and you can view those files locally on the pc they were generated on or remotely from a networked machine which has been dubbed the admin system. If this weren't enough you can block chats, emails and even peer to peer connections which pretty much allows you total control as what it viewable and not.
In all the program does okay, and I couldn't find a way around safe guards on peer to peer I set up and believe me I tried. However if you block a word like porn and not pron(a common slang alternative, or so I'm told) then the program is only as good as it was set up there is no 'smart logging' to log similar words to banned ones which would display in a report so you'd know if someone tried to beat the system.
