BASCOM Secures Its Spot as the Industry-Leader in Mobile Filtering for Education with the New 2.1 Release of the Anywhere Filter Browser App
Hauppauge, New York—February 3, 2012—BASCOM Global Internet Services, Inc., an industry leader in developing instructional technology security and curriculum tools, today announces new educational features for its Anywhere Filter™ browser app for iPad®, iPod touch®, and iPhone® devices. Available free of charge on the App Store and used with a BASCOM filter appliance, the new 2.1 release of this mobile filter app now includes a QR Code Reader to enable teachers to immediately focus students to an Internet page. Teachers post a QR code and then immediately upon entering the classroom, students use their iOS devices to read it so they can quickly begin their lesson. This feature improves learning outcomes by enabling educators to easily deliver web-enabled instruction and students to productively use their iPad devices in the classroom.
This new Internet filter app release also includes the Custom Filter feature. To assign filtering to specific groups when using Directory Services, there is a new setting that enables unique mobile filtering for iOS devices to be assigned to specific user types. By implementing this feature, a Technology Director can quickly assign different filtering to any group, such as faculty, elementary or high-school students.
With these new features, BASCOM once again establishes Anywhere Filter as the superior iPad filtering solution. Designed with features specifically for education, this mobile filter app delivers mobile security with instructional tools. “This latest 2.1 release further exemplifies BASCOM’s position as an industry leader in the educational market by including new features that improve classroom productivity when using iOS devices in school,” states Robert DeRosa, BASCOM’s Chief Technology Officer. “As iPad devices become more integrated into education, it becomes imperative that a mobile solution includes more than security features. BASCOM continuously applies its expertise in education to technology to deliver features that also improve learning.”
