UserGate for Schools prevents the usual headaches of installing and maintaining a safe and secure Internet connection sharing. The system runs on a Windows PC and provides simple installation, automatic configuration and easy customization.
Distributing Internet connectivity among students has vastly different requirements from sharing the same Internet connection between users in an office. Sharing a connection could not be easier with the broad availability of various hardware and software routers and firewalls. Not being able to control how the connection is being used is usually what prevents many schools from sharing Internet connectivity to students.
Unrestricted and uncontrolled access to Internet resources by underage students can cause more harm than good. Numerous online and Flash-based games not only deter from the education process, but often link to malicious code that will infect all school computers if given the slightest chance.
UserGate Security Server by Entensys (http://www.entensys.com/) prevents the headaches of installing, configuring and maintaining Internet connection sharing. The system runs on a Windows PC and provides simple installation, automatic configuration and easy adjustments.
UserGate Security Server installs as a NAT and DHCP server with extensive firewall protection, traffic shaping and real-time anti-virus control. The DHCP server assigns network addresses and configures network parameters for all connected PCs automatically, while the NAT driver provides transparent operation to all network users.
All traffic to and from connected PCs flows exclusively through the UserGate Security Server, making it easy to shape, control and filter any resources visited by the students. The built-in anti-virus software scans every bit of information that passes through UserGate Security Server, which, when combined with firewall protection from external attacks, makes a school network literally attack-proof.
It is not easy to protect school computers against virus, spyware and malware attacks. Installing, maintaining and updating anti-virus software on numerous computers consumes considerable amounts of time, and still cannot provide 100% protection against the newest threats.
