With our self-serve update, Securly is realizing its long held vision of giving IT Admins a product that can be set up in minutes.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) August 10, 2016
The world's leading cloud-based provider of Internet security for K-12 schools is now also the industry’s first self-servable web filter.
Since the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) came into effect in the year 2000, web filtering has been mandated for schools that seek e-rate funding. The industry has been heavily dominated by appliance hardware players whose products need to be shipped and painstakingly deployed; these appliances often end up as bandwidth bottlenecks on K-12 networks that are increasingly turning to bandwidth hungry applications such as streaming media.
Securly, by contrast, has been cloud-based from day one. With no need for a hardware appliance, customers can deploy Securly with a few simple network configuration changes. Customers will benefit from functionality, such as granular auditing and policies that they are used to in the appliance world. In doing so, they are assisted by Securly’s award winning support team based in Charlotte.
The company has now shifted their web filter product to become self-servable. Setup can be independently completed through a web browser session without ever needing to speak with a sales or support person. With this update, Securly sweeps away the complexity of network based web filters with the simplicity of EdTech tools, like Remind and ClassDojo.
Says Paul Katcher - UI developer at Securly who was part of the team that implemented self-serve - “With our self-serve update, Securly is realizing its long held vision of giving IT Admins a product that can be set up in minutes.”
Securly hopes self-serve will save IT Admins time and frustration during the back-to-school rush. For more information, contact sales(at)securly(dot)com.
