Important Facts around Application Controls
Web filtering cannot control everything
Skype is an excellent example of a modern complex network application that does not simply use Internet ports to communicate. While Skype has many educational advantages and fundamentally is a great tool for connecting schools, students, boarders and parents, it’s not always an approved or safe method of communicating.
CyberHound’s flexible application controls allow schools to enhance educational outcomes by providing Skype access in a safe and supervised fashion during set times, classes, inside boarding houses or on approved devices but denying access at other inappropriate times or locations.
