Protect your students from any inappropriate material when they use the internet as part of the educational program.
The challenge for schools Today’s school environment is characterized by the integration and use of IT. Schools are spending many resources on IT to make sure that all their students will be properly educated - by letting the students use IT during the daily classes and improving the teaching with the use of
IT. Some students bring their own laptops to school and log in to the school network. The use of IT raises some issues schools will have to address.
Some of those are:
The Internet is constantly tempting the students to explore websites with all sorts of information. They will be confronted with offensive and inappropriate material of many different kinds. Clearly some students are not ready for this and they may not know how to handle it.
By mistake, students visit sites that seem safe but in fact are not, and often these sites are downloading malware to the endpoint PC without the students knowing about it. The risk is that the school network gets infected, data gets corrupted, and it may disturb the entire schoolwork.
Many students use IT to communicate with each other. Too often someone is being harassed on the Internet or by chat and messenger programs. This may not only concern students but also teachers. All of the above issues will most likely create disturbances in lessons, or during the day when students use the Internet in between classes. Since schools are obliged to prevent students from being faced with offensive and inappropriate material, they try their best to secure the network. It can be a demanding job to maintain white and black lists on a daily basis. And still there’s a risk that the access to the internet gets
too tied down, leaving little room for free information search.

Also streaming audio and video can be controlled to avoid the misuse of bandwidth.
NetOp Netfilter is unique in its technology, because it is analyzes images, text and the individual behavior. All results from these individual analysis engines are fed into an artificial intelligence engine, giving the final verdict and categorization of the content of an individual webpage.

How Does It Work?
Every time a student browses the internet, all communication goes through the NetOp Netfilter which works as a proxy server. The communication is analyzed and categorized by NetOp Netfilter using analysis based on a combination of:
text + images + user behavior (e.g. if user often searches for pornography, MP3’s etc.) + artificial intelligence to evaluate a page.
This allows the administrator to proactively implement rules based on the school’s IT-policy. Those rules control the access to internet resources using internet filtering software. NetOp Netfilter is therefore a strong tool for schools that want to make sure that their IT policies are enforced, and not just words. NetOp Netfilter’s statistics reports help you get the full picture of internet traffic.
The school defines polices and uses Netfilter to enforce them. Students that log onto the school network with their own laptop will be assigned to the policies.
