Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
Exinda, a global provider of next-generation WAN Optimization and Network Control solutions, today announced it is partnering with cloud service provider iomartcloud, to bring the Exinda Content Filter, an innovative web filtering solution, into enterprise networks and K-12 school districts.
As a result of increased online collaboration and mobile device expansion in the workplace, the risk of employees and students accessing inappropriate content on the network is growing. In response to this trend, Exinda is integrating the content filtering capabilities from iomartcloud into its WAN Optimization and Network Control appliances which have helped over 3,000 organizations worldwide deliver safe and reliable end user experiences.
Dave Edwards, CEO and Co-Founder at Ignite Learning Partners, Inc. explains the challenge being faced: “To protect students and enforce Internet policy compliance, today’s district IT managers must ensure staff and students do not access restricted web content or other inappropriate materials. The joint solution from Exinda and iomartcloud will allow schools to quickly add web content filtering and malware protection into their networks which will mitigate potential liability and improve user experience.”
The cloud-based Exinda Content Filter will provide IT managers the ability to block access to prohibited content, prevent staff and students from downloading and sharing copyrighted material, and eliminate misuse of the network. With its best in class reporting tools, Exinda Content Filter enables IT staff to monitor users and applications on or off the network, and set intelligent policies that restrict unauthorized behavior.
“With the Exinda Content Filter, our end customers will benefit from a scalable managed solution that is integrated with the Exinda appliance they already use every day. Exinda’s flexible subscription pricing will make it more cost effective to control access to content while delivering a reliable and safe user experience for the applications they depend on,” said Mike Driscoll, Vice President of Education Sales at VistaOne Corporation.
“This is a very important partnership with a global leader in WAN Optimization and Network Control. It means our web filtering software will be delivered through a single network appliance for the first time. Businesses and organizations across the globe will be able to add web filtering to their network quickly and affordably at any level, from the gateway right down to the individual device, according to their requirements,” said Bill Strain, director of iomartcloud.
The Exinda Content Filter will be available beginning November 26th.
