ONALASKA, Wis., Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While other areas of K12 technology environments have seen significant change, the filtering technology used in schools has generally remained stagnant. Filtering tools are both difficult to maintain and manage, causing problems for the end users. In an effort to address the gap between modern K12 technologies and the old-fashioned filtering technologies still used in K12 schools, Sergeant Laboratories developed AristotleInsight::K12's Distributive Content Filter, a new tool that ensures all students remain safe while online.

Unlike other filters, the AristotleInsight::K12's Distributive Content Filter is effective even when specific content requires an SSL/TLS protocol. "Education technology has greatly changed in recent years, but filtering technologies have not," stated Sergeant Laboratories CEO Eric Anderholm. "We found that traditional filtering technologies fell short in 3 major areas: filtering of SSL/TLS encrypted connections, off-campus filtering, and filtering of 1:1 devices like Chromebooks. Because of this, we designed AristotleInsight::K12's Distributive Content Filter to allow for managing of filtering by groups, out of the box support for SSL/TLS protocols, and content filtering of all device types, regardless of location." Traditionally, content filters require tremendous amounts of configuration to filter certain device types, like Chromebooks, and to provide off-campus filtering services. Filters that can accommodate Chromebooks too often create a choke-point on the network, since they must route all web traffic through a single hardware appliance before granting access. Additionally, these traditional filters must break security protocols to filter content protected via SSL encryption. AristotleInsight::K12 adopts a distributive design that can accommodate changes within the K12 technology atmosphere. This Distributive Content Filter can handily filter all device types, including Chromebooks, PCs and Macs, without creating a choke-point for web traffic. The filter can also accommodate SSL protocols for devices that are on and off campus.
