Lightspeed Systems® keeps students safe online

Web filtering in today’s schools is about more than blocking and allowing web sites: it’s about keeping students safe — from inappropriate content to things like bullying and self-harm, while still allowing the learning and collaboration mobile technology brings.

Safe everywhere, all the time

Our patented device-level filtering agents sit on school-issued devices, so students are protected all the time, wherever they go. We have agents for every operating system, as well as solutions for BYOD, IoT, and remote learning. And don’t worry: students can’t remove or disable the agents to ensure seamless protection.

Use YouTube safely for learning

Videos can be a great way to learn, but YouTube is also full of inappropriate content. SmartPlay™, included with Lightspeed Filter™, enables schools to provide a safe and customisable YouTube experience to enhance online learning, without inappropriate or distracting content.

Allow social media for groups

Granular social media controls with Lightspeed Filter let schools block social media sites, allow social media sites, or allow them as read-only – and customise these settings by age or group or user so it’s easy to get just the right controls for the right people. Plus, get real-time safety alerts to any concerning social media activity for timely intervention.

Safe across the web

Online tools make it easy for students to work, create, and collaborate – but it’s critical that schools keep students safe across these platforms. Patented advanced AI technology from Lightspeed Systems keeps students safe across the web and apps, including Google Docs, Microsoft® 365, social media posts, web searches, Microsoft® Teams, and online mail to send  real-time alerts on any concerning activity.

Effectively block pornography

Access to pornography by children can lead to anxiety, depression, and high-risk sexual activity.  With over 20 years of web crawling experience, our unrivalled database is able to effectively categorise and block inappropriate sites to keep students safe from pornographic content – even in other languages, videos, and images. 

Prevent cyberbullying, suicide, and violence

Lightspeed Alert™ is a critical tool in student safety and the prevention of cyberbullying, suicide, and violence. With Lightspeed Alert, student activity across the web is monitored, interpreted, and flagged when concerning activity is detected. Designate school personnel for real-time alerts to provide appropriate, timely intervention. 

Safe searching

Inappropriate content can be just a search away on the web. Enable SafeSearch in Lightspeed Filter to utilise the most extensive education-focused filtering database to keep searching safe, including Google Image Search.
