Lightspeed Filter™ (formerly Relay) is powered by the most comprehensive database of K-12 online content in the industry from 20 years of web indexing. Patented Lightspeed agents leverage advanced AI to automatically block millions of inappropriate, harmful and unknown sites, images, and video. Lightspeed Filter helps technology teams scale student safety with our cloud-based, device-level protections that work across all devices, operating systems, and learning environments.
Built for out-of-the-box compliance, Lightspeed Filter is the only solution on the market that employs all four key components of effective, accurate, consistent protections; dynamic, comprehensive database, always-on web crawling, advanced machine-learning, and in-house data scientists.
Unlike other filters, Lightspeed Filter, with our proprietary SmartPlay™ technology, makes YouTube a safe and reliable instructional tool. Out of the box, SmartPlay’s patented agents and mature database effectively block millions of inappropriate videos, thumbnails, and recommended by YouTube content. Customizable policy controls enable admins to set parameters and selectively allow and permit content—including videos and comments, by grade level, group, class, and site types—without being overly restrictive.
For effective, reliable filtering and comprehensive reporting, Dallastown Area School District quickly learned that not all filters operate as they’re marketed. Learn why this Pennsylvania school district switched to Lightspeed Filter to drive more effective safety and visibility initiatives for their tech program.
Our patented technology prevents students from bypassing restrictions, and advanced controls enable customizable policies that allow or deny access based on individual or group identities, time of day, and by dozens of content categories. IT leaders have visibility and insights across all student online activity to secure safe and effective learning experiences for all students. Comprehensive, real-time reporting surfaces harmful and inappropriate internet browsing and activity to mitigate exposure and maintain compliance.
Whether parents are assisting students with remote lessons, serving as tech support for their children, or making sure that devices are being used appropriately, their involvement is more important than ever. The Lightspeed Parent Portal™ enhances communication by allowing guardians visibility of their child’s internet activity at home to keep them safe, focused, and observing healthy screen time allowances.
Once we moved to Lightspeed Filter, we started saving hours a week, every week, and the difference was immediately obvious. The filter blocks sites only when necessary, and we’ve definitely seen a performance increase from the students.
