Smoothwall Filter

The internet is now an integral part of today’s digital classrooms. The challenge for schools is to protect students from harmful content while providing the freedom to learn without limits. Preventing overblocking and unreasonable restrictions is critical. We are the pioneers of content-aware analysis.

Smoothwall Filter categorises web content in real-time, without dependence on unreliable and outdated URL blocklists.

Combined with a powerful reporting suite, social media controls and BYOD functionality, Smoothwall Filter allows you to review and control what students see and do online. Our Anti-malware also provides protection against malware and ransomware threats. Flexible and affordable Smoothwall Filter protects sizes of all networks.
