Filtering and Monitoring
Schools and other governing bodies in England and Wales are required to have appropriate filtering and monitoring in place, in order to comply with legislation and fulfill their duty to effectively safeguard their students and staff. Whilst filtering solutions ensure that the internet is appropriate for your users, monitoring services allow you to identify concerning issues by analysing patterns of behaviour. For example, monitoring can help distinguish between someone stumbling upon an inappropriate site and someone repeatedly searching for inappropriate material.
Unlike filtering solutions, monitoring products sit on top of the whole network, looking for concerning behaviours. So whether someone is using the internet or working in a word document, monitoring solutions will help to create context and report back anything that looks out of the ordinary.
