CONTENT FILTERING & SECURE FIREWALLS
We believe security is potentially the most important factor of an effective school broadband. Inclusive content filtering screens out Internet sites and information sources which are inappropriate for children, so that your students can make the most of the internet’s knowledge, but in a safe environment.
Security, simplicity, and cost. Every organisation faces these challenges for their environments. However, in education, maintaining an effective balance of these elements is critical all day, every day. Long gone are the days where students and staff were prohibited from using their personal devices and only approved users were granted network access. Today’s digital classrooms require connectivity for almost any device. From primary to secondary’s, students or staff often bring more than one device with them each day. The opening of networks to accommodate the growing number of devices fosters inevitable security risks which could lead to data breaches and data leaks of sensitive student and staff personal information. We understand the unique challenges educators face in delivering engaging, relevant, and meaningful learning opportunities to students while maintaining a high level of network security to protect data and meet compliance standards like HIPAA, CIPA, FERPA, and https://saferinternet.org.uk/advice-centre/teachers-and-professionals
We offer a broad range of education discount eligible solutions to provide schools with the products necessary to take control of their networks at an unparalleled and affordable price point. To effectively and efficiently manage bandwidth, granular tools are needed to control access and shape bandwidth for BYOD or 1:1 environments. Our filtering products offer advanced tools to manage users and applications to set the policies required for different groups (i.e., students, staff, administrators, guests and governors) no matter what type of devices they’re using. Quality of Service (QoS) tools allow schools to determine the traffic types that take priority such as VoIP or testing applications over bandwidth-intensive video or music services.
IT Security is in the forefront of the minds of school officials. Data breaches, website defacement, viruses, malware, compliance, even DDoS attacks impact education organizations across all learning environment. Our solution offers a high-performance firewall at its core with additional Unified Threat Management (UTM) features included such as IPS, remote access for all staff, web filtering, application control, and data loss protection. If schools are seeking robust security features, we also offer advanced web application firewalls, DDoS attack mitigation appliances, and multiple convenient options for two-factor authentication.
