Smarter digital safety for all with Lenovo NetFilter
New AI-driven Lenovo NetFilter software offering combines internet filtering and threat protection in one solution to keep students safer in mixed network and device environments
January 18, 2022 – Today Lenovo announced new additions to its broad education portfolio designed to enhance learning efficiencies in a new age for education.
To support schools in better securing their students, Lenovo is introducing its new content filtering and online safety solution, Lenovo NetFilter. With the increased reliance on technology to facilitate learning, there are more devices in students’ hands than ever before. As a result, many educators are increasingly concerned about digital dangers including harmful content, malware attacks, cyberbullying, and others. Lenovo NetFilter joins LanSchool, Lenovo’s award-winning classroom management software, to create a suite of solutions that support safer and more engaging digital learning.
A 2-in-1 digital safety program, Lenovo NetFilter provides cloud-based, AI-driven web filtering and threat protection solutions at an affordable price for schools. The AI dynamically categorizes unknown domains, allowing schools to go beyond block lists to help detect and eliminate threats in real-time. By categorizing content in over forty languages, Lenovo NetFilter is also able to effectively support diverse student populations. Educators can customize access levels to various file types, applications, and websites for all students or specific groups. The solution is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Chromebooks, and can be available on the school network or remotely.
Lenovo NetFilter also provides threat protection to help detect and stop both known and zero-day malware threats. With Lenovo NetFilter in place, school networks are better protected from viruses, cyber-attacks, spyware, phishing, and other digital dangers. For added safety benefits, schools can upgrade to Lenovo NetFilter+ to receive keystroke monitoring that helps detect concerning keywords and alerts educators for intervention. This extended protection helps recognize issues such as depression, cyberbullying, self-harm, and sexual content on school accounts.
