Web content protection fits school internet policy

Bloxx : 24 November, 2009  (Application Story)
Frederick Gough school is using Bloxx web filtering to fulfil its needs for utilising the educational benefits of the internet whilst protecting its students
Bloxx, the innovators in Web content filtering, has announced that Frederick Gough School is using its Web filtering appliance to enable safe and controlled access to the Internet for both students and teaching staff to meet their education needs. In addition the school is utilising the solution's powerful reporting capability to strengthen protection, identify breaches in usage and limit risk.

The school decided to move away from a SaaS solution and through IT security specialist firm CWL Systems, evaluated the Bloxx solution against their key requirements. The school immediately realised that the Bloxx Web filtering appliance provided all the flexibility, functionality and capabilities they required to more easily manage Internet access for around 1,300 users and provide superior Web content protection.

Nigel Emerson, ICT Manager at Frederick Gough School explains, "The biggest benefit is in our ability to determine, set up and provide differentiated Internet access across the school so that staff and students can access the Internet in a safe and controlled manner. Also, we can now permit access to blocked sites immediately upon request which is fantastic for our staff and students."

Nigel adds "The appliance is straightforward to use and simple to maintain, making it easy to ensure that our Acceptable Use Policy is enforced and any breaches clearly identified. Intuitive reporting provides me with access to data that I can drill into so that I can look at specific situations, users or web sites."

"The school now has all the functionality required to allow safe Web surfing and the benefits we are getting from our Bloxx appliance ensure our staff and students are protected from nasty or inappropriate Web content and viruses," concludes Nigel.
