To protect students as they use school-issued devices to access the internet off campus, Smoothwall, provider of internet security and content filtering solutions, announces a new cloud-based, remote filtering tool for the Chrome browser.

Cloud Filter for Chrome enables districts to provide a customizable level of URL filtering on devices using the Chrome browsers when those devices are off-site and no longer connected to the school network. Devices will switch automatically from on-premises filtering to cloud-based filtering once students leave the network.

Early iterations of the product will include filtering by level, a simple way to scale filtering stringency to preferred levels and a simplified reporting module, to heed of problems early.

The Cloud Filter for Chrome will be fully available in August 2017. To learn more about the cloud-based, remote filtering tool, visit Smoothwall at ISTE booth #2340 or https://us.smoothwall.com/cloud-filter-for-chrome/.
