iboss cloud for Education
The iboss cloud protects student Internet access regardless of location to ensure CIPA compliance and security is always in place. The iboss cloud lives in the cloud and eliminates the need to purchase and install web filtering appliances. As school bandwidth increases, iboss cloud automatically expands to handle the growth ensuring students, teachers and staff always have fast, secure and compliant connections to the cloud.
High risk activity from at risk students isn’t always constrained to activity performed on campus. Since the iboss cloud follows the student in order to provide protection at all times, it has the ability to provide visibility to high risk activity while the student is off campus and at home. This is critical in providing the visibility needed to prevent tragedies on campus and create the investigative reports necessary to deal with a high risk circumstance.
With one to one initiatives, the goal is to assign one laptop to every child so that digital learning can continue at home. The challenge is that CIPA compliance must be met for all school owned devices regardless of location. With traditional web gateway appliances, filtering students while at home is challenging as the equipment for filtering typically resides on campus. With the iboss cloud, security follows the student, as it is delivered in the cloud. This ensures that the same level of protection and compliance is applied to a student regardless of whether they are on campus or at home. This also alleviates the challenges of securing one to one devices by leveraging a cloud solution that can be deployed in minutes.
