Introducing the new SurfProtect

Since 2004, we've been providing schools around the country with high-quality content filtering via our SurfProtect service. With filtering requirements having changed hugely over the years, we've redeveloped SurfProtect from the ground up for the release of SurfProtect Quantum, the most advanced filtering service available on the market today.

Designed to deliver unmatched customisability and a huge range of features at a low price, SurfProtect Quantum is an ideal choice for schools looking for content filtering. No matter what your requirements, with SurfProtect Quantum, it's easy to build an effective filtering policy that keeps your students truly safe online.

Prevent Duty Compliant Filtering

The Prevent Duty is one of the most important regulations for schools to follow, requiring that schools adequately protect students from extremist content. SurfProtect Quantum is built to provide Prevent Duty compliant filtering right out the box, with the preset Prevent Duty filtering profile allowing you to completely block the content targeted by the Prevent Duty.

That's far from all - SurfProtect Quantum can block practically any kind of content, allowing schools to keep students completely safe online. Designed in accordance with years of experience working to provide content filtering excellence, SurfProtect Quantum gives you the flexibility and performance needed to suit the requirements of any school or academy.

Simple Profile Creation

In any given school or academy, different groups need to have access to different websites. As a basic example, you may not want students to have access to Youtube, while some teachers may want to use videos from the site in lessons.

SurfProtect Quantum now allows for complete Active Directory integration, which makes setting up these rules completely simple - essentially, you'll be able to set up different filtering profiles for different users, user groups and even individual machines, giving you complete control over what content can be accessed.

Complete Site Categorisation

SurfProtect Quantum automatically categorises websites based on the content that they display, sorting websites and the material that they contain into a number of categories, even multi-classifying sites when multiple categories are applicable.

Through our convenient online portal, you can choose which categories you want to block, and which ones you want to allow, with complete flexibility as to how your policy works (our umbrella presets let you easily block certain category sets - everything covered by the Prevent Duty, for instance).

Along with automatic categorisation, SurfProtect lets you directly block or unblock particular sites, while our Domain Doctor and Domain Classification tools let you see how and why a site has been classified.

Search, Social and Youtube Filtering

SurfProtect Quantum doesn't just filter websites and their content. With our service able to filter HTTPS-encrypted sites, you can filter search results across a range of search engines, ensuring an even more in-depth level of protection.

Along with search engines, you can filter the results returned when users search on Youtube, letting you completely cut out inappropriate video content while still allowing access to the vast range of genuinely useful educational videos available through the site.

SurfProtect Quantum also lets you easily block any given social media site, stopping students from using Facebook, Twitter and more while they're at school. With SurfProtect automatically categorising social media sites, it's simple to block the sites through our intuitive online panel.

Advanced Analytics and Reporting

It's important to be able to keep an eye on how your students are using the Internet. As such, SurfProtect Quantum includes a detailed analytics system, letting you see exactly what's happening across your network.

Signing into the Analytics Panel, you'll see a number of graphs and stats showing the sites and searches that have been accessed and blocked - typically through the last 3 months. Through our panel, you can take a more in-depth look at this information, seeing exactly how your connection is used at any given time.

With Active Directory integration enabled, you can even see exactly who's accessed (or tried to access) a site or search, letting you identify any potential causes for concern.

Complete Filtering Customisation

One of the latest features that we've added to SurfProtect Quantum, our advanced analytics suite gives you a direct look at how your company's Internet connection is being used day-to-day, letting you identify any potential causes for concern and possible improvements to your filtering policy.

When you log into our analytics panel, you'll see a complete rundown of the sites that people have visited and the searches that they've made, along with the sites and searches blocked by SurfProtect's filtering settings. Our analytics panel lets you take an in-depth look at how your connection is used, picking out individual sites as well as overall trends.

If you've set up Active Directory integration, you'll be able to take things one step further, as our system lets you check exactly who tried to access any given site, or made any recorded search.
