From Rockets to Relay

The next version of your Lightspeed web filter is here: Relay! It has everything you loved about your Longhorn Rockets – and so much more!

The best of both worlds

When you upgrade, you'll still have access to your Rocket interface, but by putting Relay Smart Agents on your devices, you get the best of both worlds: scalable, smart, easy end-to-end filtering for every school-owned device plus BYOD and IoT devices — all with less (or zero!) hardware to continue buying and maintaining.

Benefits of Switching to Relay

Save Time
Save time with a smarter UI, easier controls, and effortless SSL decryption.

Save Money
Save money with no more hardware to buy, no maintenance, reduced management time, and additional features that are likely separate line items in your budget.

End Duplicated Tasks
End duplicated tasks with a single interface for filtering, user management, and MDM.

Get More
Get more functionality like device location, flagged content, Safety Check, and more.

Secure and Protect
Secure and protect your data with our secure and compliant cloud infrastructure.

Relay has more than your Rocket ever could.

Relay has everything you need and more to ensure your 1:1 device program is successfully deployed, maintained, and utilized. With Relay you can filter, manage, protect and monitor with a single unified platform. With our cloud infrastructure, you get device geolocation, automatic back-ups, redundancy, and so much more.

Hassle-Free SSL Decryption

Relay Smart Agents have SSL decryption built in so you get the granular policy controls and reporting you need without ever touching a proxy, PAC file, or trust certificate.

Student Safety Alerts

Built on our powerful AI, Relay’s Safety Check helps you keep students safe with real-time alerts and reports on online activity that reflect self-harm, suicide, or violence.

Every Report, out of the Box

High level dashboards with visual charts that you can share in a click. Built-in reports on each individual user. Parent reports. Out-of-the-box YouTube and social media reports. Relay has them all!

Smart New Controls

The sites that used to be the most challenging to filter and report — YouTube, Google search, and social media — are easy with Relay’s advanced filtering features.

And lots more.

Device location
Custom flagged content lists
SIS integration
After school rules
Automatic back-ups and redundancy

What about my appliance?

Your Rocket Web Filter running v3.5.2 is already Relay-aware. That means it can ignore Smart Agent traffic and send that straight to Relay if you want it to. Next we'll have an upgrade available that makes your Rocket hardware a full Relay Rocket, intercepting network traffic (anything without a Smart Agent) and sending it straight to Relay so you have one interface for every bit of traffic.

Use your existing hardware

Relay can be configured to use as much or as little of your existing hardware as you want. Most schools choose to deploy Smart Agents to all mobile devices while keeping Rockets in use at the gateway.

How to upgrade?

It's easy! Once you've worked with your sales rep for an updated quote, all you need to do is log in and push out smart agents to your mobile devices. Your Rocket v3.5.2 will automatically ignore Smart Agent traffic, and it will be filtered and reported with your Relay policies.

Just fill this out and your account manager will be in touch to answer any questions and provide a custom quote for your upgrade.
