What Makes Lightspeed Better?

1. Better for multi-OS schools

Lightspeed supports Chrome OS, Mac, Windows and iOS; GoGuardian supports Chrome OS, and its beta Windows product doesn’t filter many apps and browsers.

2. Better safety analysis & violence prevention.

Lightspeed analyzes more online activity and web visits by category and AI to most accurately ID safety threats.

3. Better classroom device management/monitoring.

Classroom uses AI to automatically monitor classroom devices; GoGuardian Teacher forces teachers to monitor 30 dynamic screens at once.

4. Better admin reporting.

Lightspeed has the most advanced, drill-down reporting and easily shareable reports; their reports provide limited data.

5. Better, bigger database.

Lightspeed’s best-in-the-biz database categorizes 2 million websites per day and blocks unknown traffic; GoGuardian’s database categorizes only 2,000 websites per day and doesn’t block unknown traffic. (Warning: this means with GoGuardian, your students can easily access adult content!)

6. Better, more accurate YouTube management.

Lightspeed has accurately categorized 100 million-plus YouTube videos; their product relies on YouTube’s inaccurate, user-reported categories.

7. Better, more comprehensive SSL decryption.

Lightspeed offers on-device SSL decryption that can’t be removed by students; their solution decrypts SSL only on Chrome browsers.

8. Better user policies.

Lightspeed is built on 20 years of experience filtering schools and protecting students; their company has been around for just four years.

9. Better social media controls.

Lightspeed has one-click, on-off controls for specific social media channels, including read-only (no posting) options; their solution doesn’t.

10. Better for parents.

Lightspeed offers automated, emailed parent reports; GoGuardian doesn’t have parent reporting.

Lightspeed Filter is a better web filter, period. And better filtering saves you time and keeps your students safe.
