WinGate Proxy Server 8.0.4
Provide secure managed internet access for your entire network

WinGate Proxy Server is an internet gateway and communications server suitable for anything from small home networks to large businesses.

The program will share anything from a simple dial-up to speedy fibre internet connection between your various network users, for instance. And support for a host of internet protocols ensures WinGate Proxy Server will work with browsers, instant messaging software, FTP, SSL, streaming audio and video, DirectPlay internet games, and more.

Logging and auditing features, combined with a real-time activity viewer ensure you can always keep an eye on exactly how your internet connection is being used. And if this doesn't meet your approval then it's easy to set up and enforce custom access control and acceptable use policies.

Your security is protected at all times by WinGate Proxy Server's integrated packet-inspecting firewall. But if you need more then the program can be extended (at additional cost) with modules to, say, scan incoming data for malware, or filter out inappropriate content in web traffic.

And the integrated web and DNS caching means the program could improve network performance, too.

Conveniently, the program is also licenced according to the number of concurrent users, not per seat. As not everyone will be using the internet at any one time, this could save you a significant amount of cash.

Version 8 improvements include:
1. New: HTTPS inspection support added (Enterprise licenses only)
2. New: HTTP cache: now uses in-memory / file-backed indexes - no more SQL. Result is much faster cache.
3. New: Web Access Control: added rule result of "re-authenticate". This can be used to force change of user.
4. New: Web Access control: added option to track different categories for same site separately or not
5. New: can now intercept port 443 to proxy (normal non-https binding). If SSL inspection is enabled, it can be inspected, else it is tunneled.
6. New: now reads mime types for file extensions from OS when serving.

Verdict:

WinGate Proxy Server is a powerful and highly configurable package with a stack of essential features.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
