Powerful Reporting and Organizing Tools
Powerful reporting tools help you to sift through logs to identify problems. Web-based computer controls allow you to assign computers to groups and subgroups to make monitoring and controlling hundreds or thousands of computers manageable. Create accounts for staff with customizable permissions and assigned computer subgroups so that teachers can monitor their own classes or parents can monitor their own children at school.
CompuGuardian is the ONLY monitoring and control software for schools with patent pending Teenagerproof® technology to make sure that your students won’t be able to bypass or disable it. It does no good to invest thousands of dollars into a software product that is easily shut down by students.
What Is the Children’s Internet Protection Act?
The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) is a federal law that helps protect children from inappropriate content online on school and library computers. Schools and libraries that comply with the law may be eligible for federal funding to help pay for Internet access costs.
The following are requirements of the act:
1- Implement technology to block or filter obscene images, child pornography and content that would be harmful to minors.
2- Educate minors about appropriate online behavior, including social networking and cyberbullying.
3- Monitor the online activities of minors.
4- Restrict access to minors of inappropriate and harmful online content, make sure their electronic communications are safe, prevent the illegal use of computer resource by minors including hacking, and prevent the dissemination of personal information of minors.
