iomartcloud Partners to Distribute Web Filtering and Security Solution to Schools, Workplaces
RapidSwitch's sister company iomartcloud is working with WAN optimization and network control solutions provider Exinda to launch a web filtering solution designed for enterprise networks and school districts.
The Exinda Content Filter integrates content filtering capabilities from iomartcloud into its WAN optimization and network control appliances to help filter inappropriate content in the workplace or at a K-12 school. The solution also offers malware protection.
iomartcloud is the first and only organization to have met the Child Safety Online Kitemark from the British Standards Institute for its filtering solution. It offers online protection to "hundreds of thousands of children through the UK Government’s Home Access program, supplying laptops to school students throughout the UK," according to its website.
"This is a very important partnership with a global leader in WAN Optimization and Network Control. It means our web filtering software will be delivered through a single network appliance for the first time," Bill Strain, director of iomartcloud said. "Businesses and organizations across the globe will be able to add web filtering to their network quickly and affordably at any level, from the gateway right down to the individual device, according to their requirements."
IT managers will be able to block access to inappropriate content, and prevent staff and students from downloading and sharing copyrighted material. IT managers can set intelligent policies to restrict unauthorized behavior, according to the announcement.
