Solution

Technology:
 
A Solution that's Easy to Use with Simple Management and No Hardware
Anywhere Filter Cloud™ is easy to setup and get started. Use a cloud-based console from any tablet, computer, Chromebook™ notebook or iPad® device to quickly manage school mobile filtering. Eliminate the costs and hassles of maintaining hardware.
A Mobile Filter that Works and
Keeps My Existing Filter
Anywhere Filter Cloud is used to filter your devices when they leave your network. Then, your existing filter is used when your devices are on network. This cloud-based school web filtering can also be configured to provide the same browsing experience as your existing filter.
Fast Access to the Web Using Minimal Bandwidth to Save Money
BASCOM Smart Access Technology , a component of this school web filter for the cloud, provides fast, lightweight communication; since traffic isn’t proxied through a customer’s network, bandwidth is saved.
Protection of My Devices when Off-Network Anywhere Filter, a web filter for the cloud, enables granular content selection using customizable categories and prevents access using personal hotspots and public WiFi.
Support for a 1:1 Program Anywhere Filter Cloud school content filtering overcomes the challenges of using laptops, Chromebook notebooks and iOS devices off-network by successfully supporting one to one programs with mobile filtering.
Relaxed Take-Home 1:1 Policies The ability to assign different default profiles for on- and off-network filtering allows students to have more liberal access while at home. For example, when off-network, students can be allowed to access email, social media, and games, but still prevented from viewing inappropriate content.
Reports for Quickly Analyzing Internet Use Reports are included in this cloud-based school web filtering to analyze Internet use by device, address, or user name with the ability to list the most frequently visited sites and most active users, addresses, or device names.
Educational Features:  
Safety without Over-Blocking Provides more granular filtering by allowing another layer of customization. Flexible filtering enables educators to select content such as educational games using our innovative technique known as trust, even if the game category is blocked.
Meet CIPA Compliance Regulations Enforces your Acceptable Use Policy and meets E-Rate funding requirements.
Support Classroom Instruction Includes educationally-focused features to support learning using the Internet. Ability to create profiles to meet the needs of various staff and student groups.
Filtering:
 
Implement a No-Proxy School Filtering Solution for Chromebook Notebooks
Filtering is handled in the cloud (and independent of the school/district network), thereby providing a mobile school filtering solution for Chromebook notebooks without increased use of bandwidth.
Use Existing User Profiles to Quickly Enforce Content Filtering Saves time by using an existing Authentication System.
Safely Access Encrypted Sites with SSL Inspection Overcomes the risks of SSL encryption and https traffic by providing encrypted traffic management for Windows® and Chromebook™ devices. Enables students to safely access https sites for learning. Minimizes over-blocking, protects privacy, ensures compliance with a school's acceptable use policies, and provides protection.
Use YouTube Productively for Instruction (YouTube does not currently support the use of YouTube for Schools on iOS devices.) Supports YouTube for Schools. Designed for education by focusing students; removes ads, comments and suggested videos.
Filter iOS Devices using a Browser App with Educational Features Uses Anywhere Filter browser app in place of the Safari® browser. Includes educational features such as Shared Bookmarks and QR Reader.
Enforce SafeSearch for Google™, Yahoo, and Bing® Search Engines (including Cached Sites and Images) Forces major search engines into their filtered search, even if the user disables the browser setting. Prevents users from accessing anonymous web proxy sites via popular search engines.
Prevent Students from Circumventing the Filter Real-time, dynamic proxy detection prevents users from circumventing the filter using anonymous proxy servers.
Content Filtering Built Specifically for Education Ability to manage filter categories and create profiles based on age groups and subjects. Filter uses a comprehensive, education-specific URL database.
