Following an extensive tender process, BSI was recently selected by Jisc to supply UK education and research organizations with web filtering and monitoring framework services using our award winning security platform Zscaler.
Web filtering provides you with the ability to monitor and then filter the web access within your environment. Filtering your web access offers layers of protection to an institution and can help protect your organization from web based threats. Monitoring access allows an organization to protect and prevent students from accessing inappropriate sites.
Web monitoring is highlighted under the UK Government’s ‘Prevent’ initiative. ‘Prevent’ is an initiative of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 and highlights the responsibility on UK universities and colleges to have due regard to the need to prevent students from being drawn into terrorism and radicalized thinking. For this reason, it is very much in the spotlight.
