E-Learning programs are becoming more popular. These programs are designed to extend student learning beyond the classroom by incorporating technology, and more specifically, the Internet. To support this learning trend, educators are providing laptops, tablets, and netbooks to students. However, this trend does not come without its challenges. Providing students with web-enabled devices raises concerns for their personal safety. Netsweeper’s client filtering technology reduces the risks students will face online. Both CIPA compliant and BECTA accredited, Netsweeper will immediately protect students from inappropriate or explicit content, the dangers of social networking, online solicitation, and personal identity theft. Netsweeper’s reporting technology delivers detailed information on the Internet use of each and every device. This information is critical for stakeholders wanting to justify the investment and continuity of these programs. Brandable web client filters are available for Windows XP (through 10), Mac OS, and Google Chrome (Browser and OS). Netsweeper also integrates with existing MDM solutions and Single Sign On Services (SSOS).
