Commodity Web Filtering Solutions Don't Deliver the Protection today's Schools Require

Protecting data and encompassing all users in your security policies are challenging for any organizations in today's dangerous threat environment. For schools, this is compounded by the fact that school networks continue to be prime targets for hackers, not only because they hold valuable data, but also because they lack the resources to obtain the level of cybersecurity enjoyed by corporations.

We are committed to ensuring that schools are no longer considered "soft targets" for data theft by providing next-gen security solutions that are easy-to-use, affordable and most important, able to deliver the same level of security enjoyed by large banks, retailers, and healthcare organizations.
