Education, schools and educational institution

Internet access for pupils, teachers, administrative staff in classrooms, libraries, Internet cafés and laboratories should be standard practice nowadays. However, we are a long way from having as the norm a complete, mobile and secure environment that would allow teachers to give ICT-based lessons with laptop trolleys and wireless networks, enable sick leave and catering management to be delivered in real-time at each location and make regulated and filtered access to the Internet possible. Securepoint IT security and access solutions do the trick very easily and offer e.g. protection to pupils from pornography, racism and all other threats using web content filters.

Public hot spots in buildings that provide pupils, teachers and employees with better and quicker services are very much in demand. Securepoint solutions allow you to dial in from conference and training rooms, offices and public areas via WLAN or LAN securely and without configuration using notebooks, PCs, mobile phones or iPads to gain secure access to the Internet, to data, voice/video applications and business processes.

Setting up is easy and involves:

  • providing a password
  • defining access rights (Internet, printer)
  • defining connection conditions (e.g. fixed time per day, credit for a week etc.)
  • providing a ticket with all of the information required for dial-up

  • revoking user rights automatically

All of this can be carried out by individuals without any network expertise.
