There can be no doubt that the internet is a fantastic learning resource and that the tools, services and information accessible there should be available to schools. But it is also riddled with material which is not suitable for the school environment: ProtexLocal can protect both staff and students and allow your students to work on the internet safely and securely.
ProtexLocal offers significant cost savings over comparable web filtering systems.
ProtexLocal for Equiinet have been tuned for their particular range of products to provide an integrated web filtering function. Each provides for very simple installation of the Protex software via an intuitive interface.
ProtexLocal for Virtual Appliances is a subscription service that runs on a virtualised Protex filtering server. The ProtexLocal Virtual Appliance is hosted on a school server to provide a fully featured web filtering solution using the school's existing cache server. While the filtering performance of ProtexLocal VA is dependent upon the host server the VM can be very easily moved from one server to another as demands require.
