Cyberoam Helps Schools

Cyberoam announces that its CR series provides compliance for school districts and libraries struggling to meet the CIPA safety guidelines

NEWBURYPORT, Mass. -- In response to Internet safety concerns for minors, Cyberoam, the leading provider of identity-based Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions, today announces that its CR series provides full compliance for school districts and libraries struggling to meet the rigorous safety guidelines of the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). CIPA, enacted by the U.S. Congress in December 2000, mandates safety and security measures to address Internet safety concerns for minors online.

Cyberoam’s CR series contains powerful Web filtering that allows administrators to enforce Internet safety policies that block and filter Internet access in accordance with CIPA requirements, critical in enabling schools and libraries to qualify and continue receiving government funding from the E-Rate Program. WebCat, Cyberoam’s automated site-categorization engine, carries a site database of millions of sites in over 60 comprehensive categories, including porn, adult content, alcohol and tobacco, crime and suicide, drugs, gambling, nudity, violence, weapons and more, protecting schools and libraries from objectionable downloads, and ensuring they remain eligible for funding that can be vital to their educational programs.

”Cyberoam's identity-based solution provided us with the granular controls we need for complete visibility into student activities and web-surfing patterns,” says Willie Pico, District Network Administrator for Pascack Valley Regional School District. “Our institution is now CIPA-compliant – and we’re able to ensure the safety and security of our students on a daily basis without prohibiting appropriate access for faculty and student research projects when needed.”
