Why Does Your School Need Web Filtering?

The internet is now an integral part of today’s digital classrooms. The challenge for schools is to protect students from harmful content while providing the freedom to learn without limits. Preventing overblocking and unreasonable restrictions is critical.

Smoothwall Filter Gives You Complete Control

Smoothwall Filter categorises web content in real-time, without dependence on unreliable and outdated URL blocklists. Combined with a powerful reporting suite, social media controls and BYOD functionality, Smoothwall Filter allows you to review and control what students see online.

How Does Smoothwall Filter Work?

The intelligent web filter analyses a page’s content, context, and construction to spot dangerous content and block it immediately. This unique content filtering ensures there is no gap between harmful content being published, and our ability to block it. With Smoothwall’s web filter, your students are always protected.

Cloud, On-premise, Or Hybrid?
