Web Filtering Solution Not Meeting Network Requirements
Prior to speaking with Altinet, Carre’s Grammar School were using Netsweeper; an Email and Web Filtering Solution provided remotely by Mouchel. The ICT Services Manager, Nathan Bowes, found that the existing system “was not being developed or upgraded” to meet their ever-changing network requirements. Furthermore, their existing supplier “was unable to provide a robust solution to support the schools new Cisco Meraki BYOD solution”.
After recognising that Nathan and his team needed a solution that provided them with regular updates fit for their network, Altinet helped introduce the Barracuda Web Security Gateway. The main priority for Nathan and his team was to find a solution that would effectively support the Cisco Meraki BYOD application and be able to perform regular updates to ensure students and teachers are constantly protected online. It was important for Carre’s to find a product that would sit between a device connection and the internet to protect and filter anything harmful that could come into the network, protecting students from any unsafe or inappropriate content.
Altinet provided effective communication, quality suggested solutions and prompt support to our team.
