iBoss Internet Content Filtering Services
Region 17 ESC has installed the Secure Web Gateway filter from iBoss Security to provide web content filtering and reporting for school districts.  The iBoss solution that has been implemented allows districts that are connected directly to Region 17 ESC to utilize the server at Region 17, or to have their own iBoss box installed locally at the district.  With either solution, districts have full control of the filtering level at their school, even allowing overrides for administrators if needed. 

Districts that do not come to Region 17 for their internet service also have the option to purchase filtering services from Region 17. They can install an iBoss filter directly at the district and just as districts that connect directly to Region 17, control every aspect of their district's internet filtering.


Some of the benefits of using iBoss for internet filtering include:


  • Improves productivity by eliminating time wasted on unauthorized Web sites, Instant Messaging (IM) and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications.
  • Mitigates filtering and reporting issues and frees up IT management for mission-critical projects.
  • Provides management with tools to enforce an organization's Acceptable Use Policy.
  • Complies with filter-enforcing laws such as CIPA, HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley.
  • Protects against damaging and costly legal liabilities due to exposure to inappropriate or offensive Web content.
  • Secure confidential information against spyware, phishing agents and peer-to-peer transfers.
  • Controls access to bandwidth-intensive sites.
