Internet issues in the Education Sector

Providing Internet access to minors is subject to special legislation.  The latest generations of school children are in fact raised with the Internet and are quite adept at managing the tools they are given.

CIOs in charge of schools, high schools and colleges, therefore, face new constraints in terms of controlling Internet access and content.


Needs of the Education Sector

  • Respect the legal requirements for filtering content available to minors.

  • Manage access parameters for different user groups: teachers, administrators, students ... and apply appropriate filtering policies adapted to their need for the Internet and their age.

  • Manage and conserve bandwidth so that each user has access to needed resources:  business applications for administrative staff, document downloading for teachers doing research, educational videos for students...
