Untangle is a leader in comprehensive network security for schools, government agencies, nonprofits and small-to-medium businesses. In one out-of-the-box security solution, Untangle’s NG Firewall provides Unified Threat Management capabilities integrated with robust policy management tools, setting unique and granular policies for students, teachers, and faculty, enabling IT administrators to monitor and manage their network.
Network Admins can flag, block, or set alerts for specific terms in popular search engines including Google, Bing, YouTube, and Yahoo. With Advanced Web Filtering, Untangle NG Firewall enables schools to enforce safe searching, filter malware, and configure policies to block explicit, inappropriate, or mature content.
Their years of industry knowledge and experience enable Untangle NG Firewall to establish environment specific configurations ready for use in schools and other content sensitive environments. Once the network is safe, IT administrators can successfully meet their CIPA compliance goals while keeping students and staff safe and productive.
“Untangle makes it easy to put policies in place. The ease of use, ability to see relevant reports, and be alerted to incidents is crucial for managing all the school networks,” says one user. “With NG Firewall, Huntingtower School can now effectively block their students from viewing restricted websites and inappropriate content on all devices brought on their campus,” says another. “The Reports app is easy to use, and I can simply pull the required reports to show we are complying with CIPA,” says a third user.
