The issue is when these people use city owned equipment along with their personal hotspots/smart phones to bypass security we have in place to protect our network.


You need to step back and look at the overall picture then.

Your issue is that you want to protect your network.
Your problem is that employees are bypassing your security because you've locked them out of facebook (or whatever) via your proxy.

Simply put, you need to
1) remove restrictions on your internet gateway, which means YOU can control inbound hacking attacks.
2) publish some policy guidelines as to what can and can not be accessed, and get your users to agree/sign to the terms, and DO NOT block what your users want to access in their down time
3) "monitor" your internet connection, and send the appropriate warnings to the people violating your policy (via their manager). Offenders of "illegal" type content would be given more than a slap on the wrist.

4) don't concern yourself with people accessing gmail, facebook, neowin, WSJ, disney etc. I'd imagine people like firemen would have LOTS of downtime, so they need to occupy themselves somehow!

1) Outside of porn and a few other types of sites, firemen have unfiltered access to the web.
2) Each employee signs a policy when they are hired but like stated earlier by me, we need to update it to include new technologies like hotspots and the like.
3) We do "monitor" our internet connection via our Barracuda, but how would YOU go about monitoring a connection you have no control over or are aware is in use?
4) refer to #1

Right now all the "higher ups" are attempting to do is monitor the situation. They're attempting to do two things, make sure that this is even a problem and if so, to catch people in the act.

What barracuda model do you have? They have a remote filtering option that is built in most models on current firmware.

You would have to check the 310 but I know that the 410 does.

Should be around page 58. You always have the option to call up support and they will walk you through it. Support is usually really good provided you get them during the day time in west coast time.
