Web filtering exclusively for education
RM Education is pleased to announce that the new release of RM SafetyNet is now available. We’ve been hard at work for months to give schools an improved experience with greater flexibility and control over your internet filtering.
Granular user-based filtering
User-based filtering (UBF) is a new feature which will allow RM SafetyNet to sync with your active directory so that all school users will be visible through the RM SafetyNet administrator portal giving you more control over how your school ﬁltering works. This new level of customisation will enable the administrator to group users together by year group, key stage, after-school club etc and give groups bespoke access to certain websites at certain times of day.
We have also released the first stage of reporting with bandwidth graphs for your Internet use. You do not have to do anything to receive these, they will appear in your admin interface. They’ve been designed to give you a good indication of how much bandwidth you’re using. If you’re regularly reaching your limit then it could be a good time to speak to our team about your options.
New user interface design
A completely redesigned interface, giving you a much cleaner and simpler workspace. All of your existing settings will still be there; it will just be easier and more straightforward for you to be able to perform actions and view your information.
SSL interception for Google
RM SafetyNet’s SSL ﬁltering intercepts and inspects all Google search results even after they moved to SSL encryption in June this year. This feature is not available in all cloud-based ﬁltering solutions, which means that you will run the risk of inappropriate search results, including images, being displayed to your school community.
Internet usage reports for your establishment will be released in September 2016, allowing you to view what your users have been doing online and identify any concerning behaviours. The reporting features will evolve over the coming months to show trends across your school.
