Splendora ISD purchased IBOSS through MicroShare in 2011. MicroShare works directly with IBOSS to deliver an outstanding level of customer support to our district.

 

When testing out content filters we had three criteria. We wanted to provide filtering for all internet enabled computers on the network, make it affordable and in a manner that was not cumbersome to the Technology Department. MicroShare and IBOSS met all of those criteria and more.
The team at MicroShare and IBOSS have gone above and beyond to make sure that the needs of the district are always met in a timely and efficient manner. I couldn’t ask for a better team behind our content filtering.

We have been a MicroShare customer since 2009, and from the beginning I knew this company was a rare find.  MicroShare offers a variety of proven network security solutions and their customer service and support “after the sale”, is top notch.  Whenever a problem is encountered, Louis and Myles have both been instrumental in getting our support needs escalated if urgent. No other vendor is more invested in the customer’s satisfaction with the products and its performance and reliability.

 

As customers, we use iboss, Palo Alto, Exinda and Extreme Netsight.  I wish I could witness more schools using Extreme as it is the key component that helps facilitate registration and filtering with single sign-on.  With the iboss’ ability to integrate with other existing technologies (Netsight), we get more visibility and control over our network.  As a next-generation firewall, Palo Alto has set the bar high with intelligence while Exinda helps us guarantee bandwidth for critical applications by giving us a visual into who/what is using up our bandwidth.

 

Each of our solutions I consider to be best of breed, and I am thankful to have MicroShare in our corner as a resource to make our jobs run smoother.

We began establishing our relationship as a customer with Microshare in 2012 with the purchase of iboss. Before iboss, we were struggling with the dilemma of students accessing all sorts of web sites and bypassing our network filters.  We selected Microshare as our vendor of choice due to the fact that they discussed best practices and various options with us to overcome these issues.  In 2016, we purchased Palo Alto as our next gen firewall from Microshare to further protect our network.

 

Microshare service team and iboss/palo alto have demonstrated to be the best option for our school district in resolving these issues.
