Secure devices on or off campus to seamlessly support one to one initiatives
One to one (one device per student) initiatives allow students to have more access to educational technology while on campus or at home. Yet the ability to meet CIPA compliance with traditional filtering appliances can be difficult resulting in inconsistent filtering policies and lack of reporting, especially when the devices are at home. The iboss cloud allows you to extend CIPA compliance for students whether they are at school, at home or on a BYOD device in minutes without the hassle or complexity of appliances. The iboss cloud provides consistent policies and a single pane of glass regardless of where a user or device is located.
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.
- Users Go Mobile
Desktops change to laptops and users are no longer in the network perimeter.
- Encrypted Traffic
Unencrypted traffic shifts to encrypted HTTPS traffic due to mobility.
- Cloud Applications and Files
Applications move from servers to SaaS, and data & files move to online storage & access.
- Bandwidth Explosion
Increased bandwidth usage due to remote users accessing remote cloud data needed for productivity.
- Security Moves to Cloud
Data Center network security moves to the cloud where the users, applications, and data live.
Since the iboss cloud is delvered in the cloud, all student Internet activity is always protected as students are always connected through the cloud platform. This allows the same level of protection regardless of location. This also ensures the same level of visibility for Internet activity when school owned devices leave campus. This includes reporting for high risk activity and high risk students. This type of visibility can be a vital tool in preventing harm to other students on campus when high risk activity occurs off campus.
The iboss cloud can protect virtually any type of device including Chromebooks, iOS, Mac and Windows devices. Native plugins and agents are provided to ensure the devices are always connected to iboss cloud regardless of location. These seamless agents make it easy to secure devices reducing the complexity typically involved with securing the wide range of devices used on campus.
