How Smoothwall can help with a simple transition from Bloxx

Web filtering provider Bloxx has been acquired by cloud services provider Akamai, and Bloxx will no longer be renewing contracts with existing customers.

So what does this mean for you? 

If you are an existing Bloxx customer, it's likely you will have seen the news and also received an email stating the end of renewals in January 2016 (you can see a summary in this EduGeek thread).

We've spoken to many concerned Bloxx customers who are now struggling to visualise how they will continue to be supported by Bloxx, as well as how to meet obligations in safeguarding when the product will no longer be updated.

It has become apparent that this is a huge inconvenience for Bloxx customers, and Smoothwall are here to help. We can offer you continuity of service with a simple tried and tested migration path from Bloxx to Smoothwall.

As the UK's no1 content web filtering provider to Education and Public Sector, you can rest assured that you will continue to receive not only a similar but a superior service, with reassurances that disruption is kept to a minimum during the transition.

As the UK's no.1 provider, there is no need to look elsewhere.

We can offer you competitive rates with contractual flexibilities to help with the transition. View our Secure Web Gateway Datasheet (pdf)
