10,000 schools and colleges depend on their technologies to keep their students safe and organisations compliant.

The internet is now an integral part of today’s digital classroom. The challenge for education organisations is to protect students from harmful content while providing the freedom to learn without limits.

Preventing overblocking and unreasonable restrictions is critical. Meeting the minimum statutory requirements does not protect a school, college or Multi-Academy Trust from digital risk in today’s climate.

Smoothwall’s full suite of digital safety solutions combine to provide a complete online safety infrastructure that protects your whole school community.

Smoothwall Filter – What Is It?

Smoothwall Filter is the only fully content-aware web filter in education. It keeps users safe by categorising new and existing content in real-time by analysing the content, context and construction of each page.

Combined with a powerful reporting suite, social media controls and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) functionality, Smoothwall Filter allows you to review and control what students see online.

Designed to create a safer, digital learning environment.


Available In 3 Deployment Options

Ideal for customers who don’t want the burden of maintaining an appliance but prefer to sidestep any through-put problems and eliminate choke issues when filtering data. The Cloud option is not device-dependent and therefore is also ideal for one to one scenario.

Ideal for organisations who have invested in hardware, have dedicated teams to maintain and manage their appliances and who want to maximise the benefit from this.

Some customers will have particular needs and strategies that depend on having the right technology in the right environment. The hybrid of both Cloud and On-premise in some circumstances can give customers better cost efficiencies, easier management and improved overall performance.
