Lightspeed Systems Keeps Students Safer
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. Lightspeed offers a smarter filter that keeps students safer.
Safe Everywhere, All the Time
Relay by Lightspeed Systems’ patent-pending Smart Agents sit on the device, so users are protected all the time, wherever they go. We have Smart Agents for every OS as well as solutions for BYOD and IoT. And don’t worry: students can’t remove or disable the agents.
Video can be a great way to learn, but YouTube is also full of inappropriate content. Relay provides more powerful YouTube controls that make it easy to block adult content while allowing educational content.
Safe Social Media
Relay’s Social Media controls let schools block social media sites, allow social media sites, or allow them as read-only – and these settings can vary by age or group or user so it’s easy to get just the right controls for the right people. Plus, social media activity is continuously scanned and inappropriate content is flagged and alerted on.
Safe Online Docs & Mail
Online tools make it easy for students to work, create, and collaborate – but it’s critical that schools keep this activity safe. Relay’s advanced AI constantly monitors student activity on sites like Google Docs, O365, and online mail and sends real-time alerts for inappropriate activity.
Safe from Pornography
Access to pornography by children can lead to anxiety, depression, and high-risk sexual activity. Many filters are unable to effectively block pornographic content. Thanks to our comprehensive database and real-time AI, Relay keeps students safe by blocking pornographic content (even in other languages, even videos and images).
Safe from Cyberbullying, Self-Harm and Violence
Left unmonitored and unrestricted, student activity online can be dangerous. Relay’s AI keeps an eye on what students search for, what they type and message, what they message to others, and what pages they visit – and provides powerful flagged activity reports as well as real-time alerts. Relay is literally a life saver.
Inappropriate content can be just a search away on the Web. But Relay’s SafeSearch and filtered Google Image Search controls keep searching safe.
Relay has the features schools need to keep students safe:
- A more accurate and comprehensive database
- Secure Smart Agents
- Granular web access controls
- Detailed reports
- AI activity analysis
- Real-time alerts
- SmartPlay for YouTube
- Social Media Controls
- And lots more!
Schools love keeping students safer with Relay!
“With Relay we have stopped several suicide incidents. One student had 3 previous attempts. Little effort to keep kids safe.”
“Relay has helped improve safety and given us the ability to flag inappropriate content, which has been very reassuring to our school board and parents as we roll out 1:1.”
“Relay has given us the ability to connect student online/technology behaviors to actual students. In turn, we can take this information and work with administrators, counselors, and teachers, to improve or alter behavior.”
“Within the first week with Relay, we identified two students in one of the schools that were researching a suicide hotline. It was a very positive thing that we were able to catch them and get them the help they need.”
“It is an all in one package. It has everything needed to protect students and school networks.”
“As a school resource officer, Relay has been invaluable to me. We have successfully prosecuted one case based on dangerous searches that was planning a school shooting, counseled countless other students on dangers of their internet activity, and sent 2 kids to the hospital that were considering suicide. We would not have been successful in keeping our kids as safe without Relay.”
