Content Filtering Protects Our Schools and Students
N2H2, the world’s largest supplier of Internet content filtering, has today announced a new deal with BiblioTech, a leading Internet software development company providing sophisticated interactive online environments. The deal enables BiblioTech to further concentrate and maintain provision of secure online education environments to schools, LEA’s and governments.
Jonathan Lishawa, Business Development Director, BiblioTech explains, “The N2H2 solution can be used in conjunction with Schoolmaster.net to provide a safe and secure online experience for schools and their students. Currently schoolmaster.net has over 4,300 schools with approximately 450,000 registered teacher, student and parent users. It provides a secure, multilingual, multicultural, online educational community that enables pupils, teachers, parents and schools to learn and share information in a fun and responsible way. schoolmaster.net provides the user with a suite of web-based communication tools as well as access to a vast and significant array of educational content and interactive learning tools, which enabled it to win the ‘Best Application Software for Secondary Schools’ at the 2000 BETT awards.” He continues, “We’re all too familiar with the horrors the internet can potentially muster, therefore we want to offer the best service for our users, and N2H2 provide!
It is the most comprehensive, robust and cost effective web filtering solution that we could add to our educational services. BiblioTech looked at two other solutions, Surf Control and Net Sweeper, but neither solution was anywhere near as comprehensive in terms of price, performance and flexibility as the N2H2 service.”
N2H2 uses artificial intelligence and web spidering to identify and filter Web sites that are potentially counter-productive for users in educational arenas and the workplace. These sites, of which N2H2 boasts over 50 million categorised URLs, are reviewed by a Human Review team to ensure correct segmentation into more than forty categories.
Peter Hodgson, Managing Director for N2H2, EMEA region, explains further: “A comprehensive content filtering solution is an essential component in the online education and school environment, in the same way that effective internet management solutions are essential for online productivity in the workplace.” He continues, “Any business or education establishment that is serious about effective online Internet management, rather than just paying lip service to it, chooses N2H2. Our 96% customer retention rate tells it’s own story.”
