iShield for Schools

Is your school network child friendly and productive?

As some schools realise that dual teaching environments will be around for the foreseeable future, they need to ensure that their students and staff can securely and productively perform their duties from home.

The iShield is a next-generation firewall that does deep-packet inspection including application level inspection and intrusion prevention/detection by utilising intelligence from outside of the firewall. The firewall is also referred to as a smart access Unified Threat Management (UTM) device that is located at your school, giving you the ability to remotely control your entire network via the Cloud.

Bandwidth is now a major resource for schools offering dual medium lessons. Schools face the challenge of determining whether students are using the internet for personal interactions or school work. The iShield is ideally placed to guard against your students and staff draining bandwidth for personal reasons while they should be working.
