Securly Filter can accommodate on and off-campus filtering with best in class products. Whether your school has a plan for distance learning or if you have yet to come up with anything official, Securly can help! In response to COVID-19, schools have been coming to Securly for off-campus CIPA filtering. In response, we have been able to help schools successfully deploy thousands of devices in as little as 30 minutes. Many schools are able to accomplish this without the assistance of a sales engineer.
For Chromebooks, our Chromebook extension can be applied via Gsuite. It is a user-based extension that can be pushed out per OU. This is super helpful if you only want to filter students and not staff. However, if you wish to filter all users, it can be applied across the entire domain with just a few clicks.

Securly’s patented SmartPAC is an amazing tool to ensure students are filtered anywhere. It works similar to an agent, but without the overhead added to the device’s limited resources. It performs selective proxy filtering to ensure only interesting sites are proxied- all other traffic goes direct to reduce latency while maintaining CIPA compliance. For Windows devices, SmartPAC can be enforced via Group Policy or MDMs such as Intune and Filewave. How to Implement SmartPAC Via AD GPO?
