Online assessments, web-based learning tools, and mobile devices are driving the future of K-12 education. Network administrators have tried costly network upgrades to increase bandwidth and expand the reach of their Wi-Fi networks, but have found these efforts insufficient.
Unfortunately, most schools still use legacy web filters that are ineffective and inflexible when it comes to allocating what network resources users, apps and devices have access to. These out-of-date systems provide only basic block/allow port and URL-based functionality that have put CIPA Compliance and E-Rate Funding at risk. Customers choose Untangle for next generation web filtering which by definition includes application control, SSL inspection and bandwidth management, readying classrooms for the demands of the 21st century.
The product is very intuitive to use; I was able to easily set up applications and rules based on what I wanted my network to do.

What should school districts know about CIPA compliance?
As a K-12 school, Huntingtower School must prevent their 700 plus students and visitors from accessing inappropriate content while on the school premises. Users bypassing content restrictions and VPN services not restricting access were two of the main problems for Ranga Subasinghe, the ICT Sysems Administrator.
We have been using Untangle for the last few years and love it!
