The increasing use of technology within schools means it is fast becoming a notable component of many safeguarding issues, including but not limited to child sexual exploitation, radicalisation, and cyber bullying. Governing bodies and proprietors must now ensure their school or college has the appropriate filters and monitoring systems in place to limit their students’ exposure to such risks, and this is where we can help.
At Smoothwall, we’re constantly updating our portfolio to reflect new legislation changes or requirements, providing you with the solutions to protect your community in the use of technology. Providing filtering and reporting for over 100 categories, Smoothwall uses a wide variety of techniques in order to identify and categorise content including, drugs, extremism, pornography, self-harm, violence and more.
Furthermore, Smoothwall collects all online activity records per individual user, with suspicious web searches, blocked activity, bandwidth usage, IP address audit trail, user audit trail, time spent browsing, top search terms and web searches all reported upon within the Smoothwall monitoring system. This gives a complete overview of the online events happening within the school by each user, including students and staff.
