"Web filter that doesn't let you use websites"

What do you like best?

Well, I like that it does actually filter web traffic, and keeps students from navigating to questionable content.

What do you dislike?

So there are blocks and there are blocked assets. When we go to sites we are able to navigate to the site but then while on the site there are other applications within the site that may need to run such as, that are blocked as a "blocked asset", this keeps the page from loading properly, and therefore the page is not displayed. Makes the user experience zero.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use the filter to block students from getting to sites we don't want them to go to, as well as staff.

"Web filter built for k12"

What do you like best?

Lightspeed web filter is hands down the most built for true k12 protection online. The filtering ability from customize to AI driven keeps classroom instruction in mind . The ability to control at various levels for users or location is great.

Lightspeed reporting and audit abilities takes the stress out of keeping and eye on internet usage across your school system . With the ability to automate reports based on threats or concerns to specific users has a great impact on being able to correct possible issues fast

New advancements in threat detection help to identify trends of users possibly in need of interventions

Also new to the product is parent insight ability giving a true view into thier children’s internet activity

Add the power of relay and off network filters is a breeze

What do you dislike?

There is not any glaring items related to Lightspeed filter that I can say is a negative ,, especially relay which moves the filtering to the cloud ending any internal limitations on bandwidth

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Content filtering

Phishing protection

User reporting

Bandwidth monitoring

Application bandwidth

What Secure Web Gateways solution do you use?
