• Tools to help protect your staff or student’s mental health when browsing the web

    Posted By James on May 11, 2021

    It is currently Mental Health Awareness Week, and we wanted to ensure both businesses and schools were aware of the steps they could take to protect the mental health of staff and students.

    Research shows that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the mental health of the nation, with charity Mind finding that 60% of adults and 68% of young people believe their mental health had got worse during lockdown.

    Smoothwall’s ‘Monitor’ software alerts administrators when users are browsing concerning web content. Designated individuals are informed in a number of ways, including phone calls 24/7, when users try to view harmful content. The user’s keystrokes and screen views are monitored to identify vulnerable behavior.

    Self-Service Option


    The Smoothwall Monitor self-service option is used to highlight content that can be deemed harmful or concerning, this includes:
    • Violence
    • Suicide
    • Radicalisation
    • Criminal activity
    • Inappropriate use of company resources




    Managed Service Option


    This option involves the Smoothwall team of human moderators identifying risks on your business or school’s behalf. They will alert your chosen individuals by email for low-level risk cases, and telephone for higher-level risks that need immediate attention.

    Smoothwall’s ‘Monitor’ software is available for schools, colleges, universities, and organisations within the public sector.
