Lightspeed Systems® Breaks Down Major Edtech Trend in New Whitepaper

  • Media Release

AUSTIN, TX. — Education technology solution provider Lightspeed Systems has published a new whitepaper on one of the biggest trends in education technology. “Cloud Filtering in Education” shares why schools are increasingly moving to cloud filtering solutions and how to ensure successful deployment.

Lightspeed Systems has been filtering K-12 schools for more than 20 years, a fact that has positioned the company as a leader in the edtech space. The Lightspeed platform is the only complete cloud-bsed platform for filtering, managing, monitoring, analyzing, and protecting school technology programs.

With so many essential school services — directories, apps, and more — hosted in the cloud, schools are turning to cloud filtering to take advantage of its scalability, seamlessness, security and flexibility.

But not all cloud filtering solutions are created equal, and school administrations have legitimate concerns about moving from appliances to cloud filtering. Will a cloud filter cover BYOD and guest devices? Will it keep school devices safe off the network? Will downtime be an issue? Will switching to cloud filtering be too expensive?

  • The benefits of switching to the cloud

  • The true costs of appliance-based filtering compared to cloud filtering
