Granular K-12 Policies

Policies based on K-12 focused categories, GAfE based OrgUnits, and per-school, org-unit, or global black and white lists.

Simon Kinnersley is Digital Support Technician at the Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy (IPACA). He had for a long time lamented the fact that schools are often forced to overpay for expensive hardware appliances that are built for enterprises and not for K-12. “Schools have specific needs that are not well aligned with enterprise needs. It just didn’t make much sense for us to use a web filtering solution built for large companies with many features that are irrelevant to us, says Kinnersley.”

Securly was an easy choice for IPACA because of the company’s sole focus on K-12 schools. “All of their customers are schools and thus they are well-positioned to address the unique needs we have in education”, says Kinnersley. In addition to handpicked categories that make sense for schools, Securly continually updates its domain database to make sure students are able to get to the resources they need for school. “The level of granularity they provide for schools is unparalleled. We are able to create per user policies along with white/black lists for our entire district, individual schools, or even individual org units. I also like their lockdown mode, which provides the ability to limit browsing to a handful of sites. This has been really useful for administering online tests”.
