Lightspeed Systems Relay 2 Now Available in Amazon Web Services Marketplace

April 30, 2018

Education technology company Lightspeed Systems has released its multi-OS filtering and monitoring solution for purchase online.

AUSTIN, TX. — Today, Lightspeed Systems made its new K-12 filtering and monitoring solution, Relay, available for purchase in Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. Lightspeed’s multi-OS Software-as-a-Service solution was built to help K-12 school IT departments filter, monitor, report, and locate school-owned student devices. Relay can be purchased in AWS Marketplace for annual pricing of $9 per device.

There are more devices in K-12 schools today than ever before, and IT departments need to maintain control of those devices to keep students safe and focused on learning. The cloud-based, multi-OS Relay eliminates the need for multiple systems to filter, monitor, and manage school devices with features for granular user activity reporting; content filtering, including SSL sites, with flexible policies; real-time suspicious activity alerts; and geolocation for lost and stolen devices. All these tools are available in a single, streamlined user interface.

Lightspeed Systems announced Relay 2 at London’s international ed-tech conference BETT in January. Version 2 includes features such as simple SSL filtering for every OS; a Parent Report Generator; and Smart Play, a YouTube management feature powered by machine learning. Built on AWS, Relay 2 allows Lightspeed to stay ahead of resource demand by adding capacity on the fly and build out instances around the world to meet the needs of the company’s global customer base.

“The first version of Relay was released just a year ago, but K-12 schools have trusted us to keep their networks safe and filtered for almost 20 years,” says Lightspeed Systems President and CEO Brian Thomas. “Relay is revolutionizing the way schools protect their technology and its availability in AWS Marketplace makes it easier than ever for schools to start implementing our solution.”
