Overcome Challenges with BASCOM’s School Web Filter for the Cloud

What Do You Need?Solution
A Solution that's Easy to Use with No Hardware and Simple Management
Use a cloud based console from any computer, tablet, Chromebook notebook or iPad® device to quickly manage mobile filter settings. Eliminate the costs and hassles of maintaining hardware. Anywhere Filter Cloud is easy to setup and use.
A School Mobile Filter that Works and Keeps My Existing Filter

Anywhere Filter Cloud filters your mobile devices when they leave the school’s network. Your existing filter can still be used when your devices are on network. This cloud based school web filtering service can also be configured to provide the same browsing experience as your existing filter.

Relaxed Take-Home 1:1 Policies

The ability to assign different default profiles for on- and off-network filtering allows students to have more liberal access while at home. For example, when off-network, students can be allowed to access email, social media, and games, but still prevented from viewing inappropriate content.

Fast Access to the Web Using Minimal Bandwidth to Save Money BASCOM Smart Access Technology, a component of this school web filter for the cloud, provides fast, lightweight communication; since traffic isn’t proxied through a customer’s network, bandwidth is saved.
Securing School Owned Devices when Off-Network

Anywhere Filter, a school web filter for the cloud, enables granular content selection using customizable categories and prevents access using personal hotspots and public WiFi.

Support for a One to One Program By successfully supporting 1:1 programs with mobile school filtering, Anywhere Filter Cloud school content filtering overcomes the challenges of using laptops, Chromebook notebooks and iOS devices off-network.
Reports for Quickly Analyzing Internet Use Reports are included in this cloud based school web filtering to analyze Internet use by device, address, or user name with the ability to list the most frequently visited sites and most active users, addresses, or device names.
