Keep Students Safe Online
Schools have a duty to protect pupils from accessing inappropriate content while also protecting devices and school networks from malicious attacks. Unfortunately, children are less savvy or suspicious than adults, making them more likely to fall for phishing attacks and social engineering. By automatically detecting and blocking phishing attacks, DNSWatchGO keeps student curiosity from becoming a liability. Not only can DNSWatchGO block cyber attacks, it also provides domain-level protection and content filtering to protect users from going to inappropriate sites – regardless of where the student connects.
Mobile devices are transforming education, necessitating student access to high-speed Wi-Fi to deliver abundant web-based educational resources. In many networks, Wi-Fi security is an afterthought, but schools require wired and wireless networks to have the same strong protection in place. WatchGuard has built its reputation on strong security, and we bring this same emphasis to our Wi-Fi products. Learn more >
