IT security solutions and content blocking

Protecting your students and staffs data

In this day and age, it’s more important than ever to keep the data of your children, students or staff safe and to monitor the content they are viewing within school grounds.

We have moved several Dorset-based schools away from their previous filtering solutions provided by SWGfL as well as taking over their legacy internet connectivity and infrastructure. Along with managing to save them a significant amount of money, the filtering solution is much more granular allowing staff/students to bring their own devices into the school safely without having to worry about inappropriate content slipping through the net under any circumstances.

Our filtering solutions adhere to all current government guidelines, such as the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) list, Counter-Terrorism Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU) as well as Child Abuse Images and Content (CAIC) lists. Although legally; the UK’s ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ guidelines state “appropriateness is down to individual establishments”, we take a belt-and-braces approach to filtering, enforcing things like strict YouTube ‘Kids Mode’ and forcing Google SafeSearch on all devices.

If you’d like to have a no-obligation chat with us regarding your current filtering solution and/or broadband connectivity, please get in touch with a specialist today by giving us a call on (01305) 500118 or sending us an enquiry below.
