Cyber Sentinel is good internet filter software. The product has a number of options as far as setting up how you want blocked sites handled; either blocked, warned, closing of the browser, capturing a copy of the screen, or a combination of these. You need to look closely at these options to make sure the behavior of the application is what you are expecting.

There are no profiles so you don’t have a choice to set up the application differently for the parents as opposed to the children. There is no real reporting function. You do have the ability to look at screen captures of various blocked sites.

The screen capture function is a little cumbersome to use. Other than that, it’s a farily easy program.

Overblocking/Underblocking was good, but not great. It did allow a number of sites through that it should have caught, especially in the foreign language websites.

Cyber Sentinel Summary:
6.3/10

Overall, a good product that is easy to use.
