As a fast and efficient
repository for information, the Internet is an educational
resource without equal. However, many educators and parents
view school Internet access with great skepticism and alarm
because it gives children and easy access to offensive,
inappropriate, and dangerous adult material. Allowing access
to such material exposes schools to legal liability, and any
organization that cannot show it has made reasonable efforts
to curtail access to objectionable material is vulnerable to
potential law suits.
W3Control's W3Filter allows educators to enforce their
Internet policies, reduce legal risks, increase
productivity, improve the capacity and speed of Internet
circuits, meet Federal and State Legislation and avoid
discipline problems. W3Thermo analyzes log data and produces
detailed productivity reports.
- Enforce your Internet
W3Control's W3Filter enables you to restrict the
Internet access of your school, groups and individuals in
accordance with your school's Internet access policy.
Using W3Control filter you can easily block access to
undesirable or uneducational Internet content such as
pornography, hate speech, weapons and drugs. W3Thermo allows you to validate your
Internet policy by giving you a thermometer reading of
the Internet usage.
- Reduce Legal
Educational institutions that provide unrestricted
Internet access to students and faculty, are exposed to
broad and potentially damaging legal risks. Some schools
are facing charges that they irresponsibly gave children
access to indecent material on the Internet. W3Control's
W3Filter give you direct control of the
kinds of Internet content that your students and faculty
are allowed to access. This greatly reduces the risk of a
- Comply with Federal
and State Legislation
W3Control's W3Filter has been tested by the
International Computer Security Association (ICSA) and
has received the ICSA Internet content control
certification. W3Filter meets the filtering and
monitoring specifications required by currently proposed
legislation in Arizona, California, Kansas, Kentucky,
Missouri, New York, Tennessee, Virginia and others.
- Avoid Discipline
Unfiltered Internet access can give rise to serious
discipline problems among students, faculty, and staff.
Internet users can easily become distracted by gambling,
pornography, and other high profile "vice sites" on the
Internet. This directly impacts student discipline, and
may have career terminating implications for teachers and
administrators. Stopping this behavior with W3Filter allows educational institutions
to avoid embarrassing termination incidents among faculty
and staff, and to eliminate the discipline problems
associated with student access to inappropriate or
offensive Internet content.
Keep your institution focused on its education mission by
ensuring that faculty and students' Internet usage is in
keeping with your academic goals and standards. Student
and faculty productivity is negatively impacted by the
distraction inherent in unrestricted and unmonitored
Internet access. Internet monitoring allows you to
optimize the use of the Internet by seeing how it is
Speed and Capacity
Studies have shown that as much as 50% of the Internet
traffic from educational institutions is directed to
undesirable sites (ie. pornography). By eliminating
access to these sites with W3Control filter, network
traffic can be greatly reduced, thereby increasing
bandwidth availability and speed of access.
