Enterasys and iboss Roll Out K-12 Solution for Web and Application Filtering

Dec 10, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Enterasys Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company, announced a partnership with iboss Security to provide location-based application filtering for K-12 school districts.

According to a release, the combined solution of Enterasys Mobile IAM BYOD and iboss Enterprise SWG Web Filters allows school districts to provide access to the Internet, applications, and content based on user, location, or classroom without impeding learning.


In the past, school districts were forced to use web filters that severely restrict access to web sites and applications, limiting the learning potential the Internet provides. According to the recently-released American Association of School Librarians (AASL) annual survey, 52 percent of schools complain that filtering impedes student research and 42 percent find it discounts the social aspects of learning. On the other side though, 50 percent indicated that filtering decreased the number of potential distractions.

"Today's K-12 students and faculty absolutely need access to the Internet to leverage the significant advantages it brings to the learning environment, but enabling optimal access while protecting students and complying with regulations requires a multi-pronged approach that includes training, monitoring, and flexible controls. More specifically, web access needs to be tailored by device, student, and location, among other factors," said Vala Afshar, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Customer Officer at Enterasys Networks. "Our already comprehensive suite of solutions for K-12 school districts now includes a new joint solution designed to help districts successfully manage Internet and application access to a vast number of devices in an environment of diverse needs by combining the Enterasys Mobile IAM BYOD solution with iboss Enterprise SWG Web Filters." Enterasys, iboss Security and Hardin County Schools will be presenting a webinar in conjunction with District Administration magazine on December 11, on the benefits of location-based filtering in K-12.
