CIPA compliant filtering

Keep students safe

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

How our CIPA filtering works

Shareable reports

See and share everything

Lightspeed’s Filter offers the most powerful, actionable, and shareable reports. Get high-level data on device use or detailed, granular reports on individual students. Whatever you’re investigating or analyzing, Lightspeed has it all covered with smart reporting for every use in K-12.

Google controls

School problems solved

The vital services that are used each day come with challenges for IT teams as they struggle to provide students access to the resources they need without exposing them to inappropriate content. Advanced features such as SafeSearch and filtered Google Image Search controls keep searching safe.

Smart Play

Safe YouTube

Smart Play uses our advanced AI database to categorize videos, so you can turn on education videos in a click and block inappropriate and distracting content. Some of the worst content on YouTube is in comments and recommended videos. One click and they’re gone, giving students a safe, appropriate, distraction-free YouTube experience.

Get YouTube without the risks

Social media management

Block, allow or read-only

Social media controls make it easy to manage social media access by blocking, allowing, or allowing but in read-only mode. Different groups have different needs, and different levels of maturity, when it comes to social media, so you can set any policy by group, age, grade, or user. Want to allow access after school or off-campus? That’s no problem with Lightspeed’s After School Rules.

Implement social media safely

Real-time alerts

Put time on your side

When it comes to security and safety, time is of the essence. That’s why Lightspeed’s Protect notifies administrators in real time as it detects potential incidents. Each notification details the flagged behavior and provides a link to a complete activity log.

At school or at home, Filter has the features you need.

Today’s 1-1 programs reach well beyond the boundaries of the school campus. Whether it’s protecting take-home devices or keeping parents informed, we’ve got you covered.

Got BYOD and IoT?

We’ve got you covered.

Lightspeed’s patent-pending Smart Agents are perfect for all your school devices. You don’t have to do anything; just deploy the agents and get the decryption you need.

Want the same decryption for BYOD and IoT devices? No problem. A Relay Rocket virtual appliance installed on your network catches every bit of traffic the Smart Agents can’t.

Included free with Filter
