BASCOM Adds New Cloud Based Internet Filtering
to Its Anywhere Filter™ Product Family
Hauppauge, NY—September 24, 2013—BASCOM Global Internet Services, Inc., an industry innovator in developing Internet content filtering solutions for schools, today announces the addition of Anywhere Filter Cloud™, an easy to use cloud web filter, to its Anywhere Filter product family. As a cloud filtering service, it provides schools with a solution that’s easy to use, yet overcomes the complex challenges of filtering mobile devices. Designed with a cloud based console managed from a tablet, computer, Chromebook™ notebooks or iPad® device, this new cloud based Internet filtering solution pairs perfectly with any existing filter, or it can be used as a standalone solution for meeting any of your filtering needs. Anywhere Filter Cloud is also the ideal solution for quickly launching a one to one initiative to support mobile learning.
Easy to Use Cloud Filtering Designed for Schools
Anywhere Filter Cloud is simple to configure and manage. It delivers web content safely without needing to buy or maintain an onsite server appliance. Designed for schools, it delivers a cloud filtering service with built-in reporting and educational features for using the Internet productively for learning. With YouTube for Schools* support, the ability to granularly select web content using customizable categories, and the ability to create multiple profiles to meet the various needs of staff and students, this CIPA compliant filter provides both the convenience of a cloud service and the benefits of a best-of-breed solution designed for schools.
A Cloud Web Filter that Also Supports an Existing Filter
System Administrators are challenged with securing school-owned mobile devices when used off-network. Often, the school filter falls short in delivering the remote filtering needed for safely using mobile devices to continue learning outside of the classroom. Anywhere Filter Cloud steps in and secures iPad or iOS devices, Windows®, and Mac OS X® computers by filtering access through any connections including personal hotspots and public WiFi. Using patented filtering with BASCOM Smart Access Technology™, it immediately recognizes when a device leaves and returns to the network and filters mobile devices using fast, lightweight communication that supports productive, Internet learning.
