Web Filtering for schools

Used by more than 7,000 UK Schools, Smoothwall web filtering offers award-winning security for educational environments.

Smoothwall appliances allow schools to monitor safe usage of technology, keep children and young people safe from inappropriate content online, administer age-appropriate security policies, report blocked actions, and meet the highest educational security compliance standards.

Lineal partners with Smoothwall to implement cutting-edge security devices for:

  • Content-aware web filtering
  • URL indexing
  • Social Media controls
  • Bandwidth control
  • User policies & compliance
  • Incident reporting & security review

Safeguarding technology allows organisations to maintain their duty of care obligation and ensure safe internet access is a key learning resource. Smoothwall solutions have been developed to assist schools in exceeding Ofsted requirements, fulfilling Prevent Duty legislation, and to follow guidance from the Home Office, Anti-Bullying Alliance and Internet Watch Foundation.

Security options may support either conventional internet broadband service, or a “wires only” leased line service without ISP-provided router – in addition to distributed networks over multiple school sites.

All web filtering devices are covered by 3 or 5 year support agreement from Smoothwall, and a range of appliances are available for academic organisations of all sizes, from small primary schools to larger institutions.
