Default blocking internet access

Is there a device that will allow me to block internet access to certain machines on a network, while still allowing certain programs to access the outside?

Or is there a software solution for this? I've got a couple of computers on my network that I would like to restrict internet access (for the users), but we have one important program that must have access to an offsite location to function.

Any halfway simple fix for this?

It's called a firewall.

Zone Alarm Pro can be configured to allow or not access to the internet. Its a firewall that many use. I would imagine a router/firewall hardware solution could do the same job.

I didn't know that Zone Alarm would do this. I've only used it to restrict outside access. Never gotten that deep into the program. Guess I would just configure it to not allow block IE?
