Is SSL Decryption Needed For K-12?

SSL FILTERING FOR SCHOOLS

 

WHY IT MATTERS FOR STUDENTS

Without SSL Decryption, Internet filtering and monitoring tools can only see the top-level domain of a requested website. They can’t see the full path of the request: They can’t see keyword search terms or what kind of content is returned.

 

WHY IT MATTERS FOR SECURITY

The widespread use of SSL encryption has made it appealing for hackers to disguise their attacks within SSL-protected sessions. Without a deeper inspection of SSL-encrypted web traffic to make sure it’s legitimate, you could be exposing your schools to greater risks.

 

WHY DEGRADATION IS NOT AN ISSUE

While SSL decryption can reduce network speeds – in some cases, quite dramatically – That’s not a problem with ContentKeeper’s TurboBridge technology that allows intelligent SSL inspection at multi-gig speeds.

LEWISVILLE ISD

Lewisville ISD required a cost effective and easy to manage solution that could support the successful rollout of approximately 20,000 new ipads in 2013 and their existing network infrastructure, ensuring Web use remained CIPA compliant. Lewisville ISD deployed ContentKeeper Web Filter Pro to secure all of its allocated 1:1 devices, and future-proof the school’s wireless network for BYOD mobile use.

 

Syracuse City School District

The Syracuse City School District was looking for an easy, cost effective way to scale and upgrade its filtering system speed. Hearing testimonials from a local network partners, Syracuse City decided to give ContentKeeper a try. ContentKeeper gave them better performance, more fine-tuned control, and provided exceptional support.
