Untangle for K-12 Schools


Keeping Students & Staff Safe Online

Online assessments, web-based learning tools, and mobile devices are driving K-12 education. Network administrators have tried costly network upgrades to increase bandwidth and expand the efficacy of their Wi-Fi networks, but have found these efforts insufficient.

Unfortunately, most schools still use legacy web filters that are ineffective and inflexible when it comes to allocating what network resources users, apps and devices have access to. Customers choose Untangle for next generation web filtering which includes application control, SSL inspection and bandwidth management, along with the ability to block, flag and alert on search terms, enforce safe search, and log YouTube searches, breaking down the glass wall of how students and teachers can safely access educational materials from across the internet.


The product is very intuitive to use; I was able to easily set up applications and rules based on what I wanted my network to do.
