Web filtering has become more challenging for schools as they strike the balance between safety and appropriate access on devices that go everywhere with students. In addition, no two schools (or students!) are the same, so filtering policies vary across the board.

With an increasingly encrypted web, getting the information schools need to protect students are trickier. Search term reports, selective access to Google services, YouTube controls — schools need SSL decryption for all of them. Sadly, more than 60% of K-12 IT personnel say they aren’t decrypting SSL at all.

Lightspeed Filter is part of the purpose-built ecosystem of cloud-based solutions – tailored to meet today’s evolving challenges – and can be integrated with our early-warning threat detection alert system, mobile device management, classroom management, and analytics components to provide safe and effective learning for students worldwide. In this whitepaper, learn how to overcome the toughest challenges of implementing a K-12 content filtering system for your district.
