We set-up your system to your specific requirements
Protex Pro 5 comes completely ready to protect. We set-up comprehensive ‘block’ and ‘allow’ lists and age specific filter profiles. You don’t need to do anything, it couldn’t be easier.
Unlike many solutions, Protex Pro 5 carries out real-time checking of all content, whether the web page is http or https. Protex Pro 5 checks and blocks inappropriate file types such as .EXE, .MSI, .HTA etc. It also finds and blocks known malware and phishing sites.
Search term filtering
Protex Pro 5 filters the words and phrases that are used in searches.
All devices using your connection will have filtering applied
Many other filtering solutions have difficulty applying filtering to all devices within the school, such as iPads or smart phones. Protex Pro 5 protects all devices which are using the school Broadband connection, regardless of operating system.
Flexible filtering profiles
We provide multiple level filtering profiles for all your different user groups such as year groups, subject groups and teachers. We can also set time scheduled alternate profiles which allows for specific projects and activities.
Real-time updates with local control
Any block or unblock changes are done in real-time, so for example, if you ask us to block a site, it will be inaccessible immediately. Unblocked sites can be accessed straight away.
Filter profiles can be created using your own Active Directory. For example, a group of pupils working on a specific project can be given access to a site that is usually blocked. Authenticated access also allows you to track the Internet activity of specific individuals by username.
Our user friendly interface allows you to generate a range of daily, weekly or termly reports. You can ask for information such as the top 100 sites visited or how often a particular resource is being used. If you can’t find a report you need, we will you create it for you, or show you how to do it yourself.
Our on-site Protex Pro 5 server can also act as your internet gateway. It will provide a range of firewall facilities such as blocking external IPs, allowing specific devices direct Internet access, giving remote access for staff to the network and setting up VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) between sites e.g. schools within a single federation.
