Chromebook Cloud Filtering and Reporting for Schools
Built by an educational technology expert with over 17 years of experience, Anywhere Filter Cloud now integrates with the Google Management Console to deliver a no-proxy Chromebook™ web filter for BASCOM customers. With zero-touch deployment to Google App users and groups, it provides an easy to use solution for Chromebook 1:1 programs using directory services. It combines the benefits of a mature, best-of-breed solution built for schools with easy Google management to offer Chromebook filtering and reporting ideal for many learning environments.
Using patented filtering with BASCOM Smart Access Technology™ and SSL inspection, Anywhere Filter Cloud delivers a Chromebook web filter by immediately detecting when a device leaves and returns to the network. It supports productive Internet learning using fast, lightweight communication and saves money. Since traffic isn’t proxied through a school’s network, bandwidth is conserved.
Quick Deployment of Chromebook Filtering using the Google Management Console
Anywhere Filter Cloud empowers IT staff to quickly deploy a Chromebook web filter using the Google Management Console. Unique filter policies can easily be pushed out from the console to Google Apps Organization Units. Using a single sign-on, administrators, teachers, and students are assigned the policies established for their organizational units based on their GAfE accounts.
Chromebook Cloud Filtering for Securing Learning Environments
To help students acquire high level skills such as collaboration, communication, and organization many schools are adopting Google Apps for Education (GAfE) program. As learning evolves and new pedagogical models such as the “Flipped Classroom” are adopted, IT staff is tasked with securing devices both in school and at home. Chromebook notebooks integrate easily with GAfE, are easy to use, and provide an economical solution for administering state tests such as PARCC and Smarter Balanced online assessments. When used with the Anywhere Filter Cloud, they provide secure technology that just works and doesn’t get in the way of active online learning.
