Where technology and teaching connect
Schools must safely manage the network activity of devices owned by the school and those carried in by students, staff and visitors. Lightspeed Systems provide tools designed exclusively for schools enabling safe, fast access to the internet plus precise, easily devolved control over mobile devices.
Lightspeed Mobile Device Management (MDM)
Lightspeed’s MDM is cloud-based software making mobile device management simple. Policies, settings and restrictions can be deployed and modified over the air, and apps can be sent to iOS devices. Paid-for apps can be purchased using the Apple Volume Purchase Program and then deployed using Lightspeed MDM. Schools can budget for software purchases and benefit from 50% price reductions on many education titles.
Lightspeed Rocket Network Appliance
The Lightspeed Rocket network appliance ties all these solutions together and integrates them into your existing Windows Server and directory service. Your mobile devices and all web access will be associated with an authenticated network user and the reporting systems give you total visibility and control.
Lightspeed Collaborative Web Filter
Web filtering is a balancing act between blocking inappropriate content, keeping everyone safe and on track, and giving users access to engaging, educational content. Lightspeed’s filter ensures that IT gets secure filtering for all fixed and mobile devices on the school network based on a comprehensive education-specific database. Teachers and students get access to the sites and tools that enhance education with total, granular control.
Lightspeed Mobile Filtering for mobile devices
Lightspeed’s Mobile filtering allows you to extend your existing filtering policies to your off-network devices. It supports iOS, netbooks, MacBooks, laptops, and Android devices to ensure safe, secure 24/7 learning opportunities.
