Protect: Create a safe learning environment in the classroom or at home

The internet is a core resource and important tool to help children continuously learn and grow as individuals. Protecting students from online threats and their devices from infection is more important than ever before.

Netsweeper nFilter provides real-time analysis of content that is often missed by other filtering and security products. We go beyond standard URL lists to ensure students are protected from inappropriate or malicious content at all times. Our platform has been developed to meet both US CIPA and UK OFSTED compliance requirements. Our BYOD capabilities provide peace of mind and allow students to learn safely in and out of the classroom.


Pupil protection and remote learning

Netsweeper nClient, part of the Netweeper Education Ecosystem, works with the Netsweeper central platform to extend web filtering and digital monitoring to student devices, ensuring they remain protected when they leave the school’s network. The nClient application can be installed on Windows, OSX, Chrome, iOS, and Android devices, and will monitor internet traffic on those devices even when they are not connected to a Netsweeper filtered network.
