Assure Web Filter

 

Supporting On-Premises, Off-Premises, BYOD and 1:1 Programs

Developed specifically for smaller K-12 schools, the Assure Web Filter empowers schools with advanced web filtering, deep inspection and flexible controls, enabling them to support their students’ learning journey and to protect their students from harmful online content. 

The Assure Web Filter is available as an optional module to our cloud-based, online student safety solution, Saasyan Assure.

Enhancing Digital Safety In Schools With Advanced Web Filtering 

The Saasyan Assure Web Filter is a comprehensive solution comprising two key modules:  

  1. A Cloud-Managed Virtual Appliance, for supporting On-Premises and BYOD; and
  2. A Cloud-Managed On-Device Filter, for supporting Off-Premises and 1:1 Programs.

How It Works

  1. Network traffic is captured by the Assure Web Filter.

  2. The Assure Web Filter detects users and applies the appropriate policies to them:
    a.    Traffic that is allowed goes to the user as normal. 
    b.    Encrypted traffic is selectively decrypted and analysed which is then either allowed or blocked. 
    c.    Blocked traffic will display a block page to the user, and optionally an alert can be sent to administrators.

  3. All traffic is logged for the Alerts and Reports within Assure.
