Web Filter 3’s new features and enhancements include:

  • Increased filtering speed and scalability
  • More options for filtering and reporting on SSL sites like Google
  • More powerful reporting, including live traffic reports
  • A clean, intuitive new user interface
  • A redesigned administrator dashboard
  • A Notification Center for instant news on updates or system issues
  • Cloud-based backups

“The needs and challenges of school IT departments have always guided the development of our Web Filter,” says Lightspeed Systems Chief Executive Officer Brian Thomas. “Web Filter 3 is our biggest release ever, incorporating all the new features our K-12 customers need plus even more.”
