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 Policy
    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 Exposure
    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 law suit.
  • 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 Problems
    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.


    Increase Productivity
    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 used.


    Increase Internet 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.
