Further & Higher Education
As technology continues to evolve and play a pivotal part in how students learn academically, it can be difficult for UK colleges to implement the appropriate web filtering and monitoring solutions needed to protect their users online.
Providing accessible, social, personable and secure digital environments
With compliance against UK legislation and guidance such as the Prevent Duty and DfE Keeping Children Safe in Education remaining high on the agenda, organisations must ensure their IT policy incorporates appropriate measures to support acceptable use and effectively safeguard their users from harmful and inappropriate material.
With a wider spectrum of learners, it is vital for FE organisations to provide an accessible, social, personable and secure digital environment, whilst still being able to give their diversity of users the ability and freedom to work without limits. Smoothwall understand that with such demand to keep up with ever-evolving technologies, whilst facing funding cuts and financial insecurity, implementing the above can be challenging.
