ContentKeeper Releases Revolutionary High Speed Multi-Gigabit Web Filtering Technology for K-12 School Districts

TurboBridge system supports bandwidth demands for online learning and assessments

Orange, CA (Nov. 19, 2014) – As more schools shift to digital learning environments and online assessments, districts are looking for reliable and cost-effective solutions to support high-volume Web traffic. ContentKeeper, a leader in BYOD and 1:1 Web access controls for next-generation learning environments, announces the release of TurboBridge, a revolutionary Ethernet bridge technology that meets the high-speed performance and scalability demands of districts’ growing bandwidth requirements.

Through a new 2nd generation interception system, TurboBridge provides reliable, high-speed Web filtering that supports rising bandwidth demands in school districts and education agencies. The system retains higher performance and bandwidth capacities even when SSL decryption features are active, allowing for full inspection and filtering of all or selective secure Web traffic.

“Today, school districts face difficult online security challenges and it is our job to provide proactive tools that ensure a safe and quality learning environment for students and educators,” said Mark Riley, chief technology officer of ContentKeeper. “TurboBridge offers a reliable solution for K-12 school districts and will continue to protect our schools from web-based threats.”

TurboBridge reduces the number of appliances required for high-demand network architectures by up to 75 percent, resulting in lower implementation and management costs for school districts and state and regional education agencies. Through its powerful high-speed processing capacity, TurboBridge manages high volumes of Web traffic and user counts to assist with online learning and assessment testing.

“Technology is rapidly changing the landscape of K-12 learning environments, which in time also brings more potential threats to students, educators and school districts,” said Tony Lucich, Director of Technology Infrastructure Services for Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE). “TurboBridge allows schools to proactively prevent threats before they happen, while still enabling educator access to safely access all the online educational resources that enhance instruction and learning.”

The release of TurboBridge highlights ContentKeeper’s continued dedication to developing Web access controls for BYOD and 1:1 learning environments. The company aims to facilitate easy and secure access to a rapidly growing set of online learning materials, while also protecting school district networks and students with mobile devices.
