Firewall and web filtering devices to protect schools

Service Pack: Core Service

Subject: Tools

Each school subscribing to Atomwide Education Services will be provided with a local firewall or filtering appliance which is configured and managed by Atomwide.

Whatever connectivity a school has, each subscription to TRUSTnet comes with an appropriate firewall or filtering appliance that will be located at the school’s site. This is designed to protect schools from malicious attacks over the internet.

The provided devices are fully managed by TRUSTnet and come pre-configured to school's connectivity requirements. All firewalls deployed at school sites are from the Cisco ASA range and are capable of supporting optional added-value services for schools such as IP telephony (VoIP) systems, Video Conferencing services and Managed Wireless Network solutions.

Through the effective use of firewall and appliance technology TRUSTnet aims to keep school networks and machines protected while ensuring that staff and students remain safe online when accessing the wide, and growing, range of services and learning resources available via a TRUSTnet connection.
