Lightspeed Systems Announces Filter Bypass Control

Lightspeed Systems has introduced a new feature to its school content filter for protecting students online. Filter Bypass Controls, now available in Lightspeed Systems Web Filter version 3.4, gives school IT departments the ability to ban and report on the use of web filtering bypass tools.

Student users have turned to filter bypass clients such as Psiphon, UltraSurf, Hotspot Shield, VYPR and more in an effort to get around their school filters. Filter Bypass Controls is a proprietary, AI-powered technology that tracks traffic associated with filter bypass clients, blocks them, and adapts to changes in these dangerous technologies.

Filter Bypass Controls lets school IT departments:

  • Ban filter bypass clients with a single click in the Lightspeed Systems Web Filter interface
  • Receive real-time alerts when use of bypass tools is detected
  • Report on any user attempts to bypass the filter
  • Lock out users who attempt to bypass the filter for a time period ranging from one to 60 minutes
