Marietta City Schools Wins One Year of Free Internet Content Filtering From TeleMate.Net Software
Joining TeleMate.Net Softwareâ€™s broad customer baseâ€”including over 18,000 deployments globallyâ€”a Georgia-based charter system will receive a free web filter and realize significant cost savings.
Norcross, GA (PRWEB) November 29, 2011
Now more than ever, the Internet is regarded as a powerful teaching tool in schools, but strictly enforced CIPA requirements, rising Internet security costs, and rapidly shrinking school budgets provide a unique challenge for technology staff. To help ease the pressure on schools and their technology administrators, TeleMate.Net Software offered a â€œWeb Filtering for a Yearâ€ giveaway exclusively to attendees at the 2011 Georgia Educational Technology Conference (GaETC).
Today, the company announced that Director of Technology and Information Systems, David Digiovanni, received the prize on behalf of Marietta City Schools (MCS). The giveaway will provide MCS with a NetSpective Internet Content Filterâ„¢ appliance, an unlimited user subscription, and a comprehensive reporting solution (NetAuditor® for NetSpective) â€“ a solution valued at over $100,000.
â€œManaging the technology decisions for eight elementary schools, a middle school, a sixth-grade school, and a high school is no simple task. The decisions my team and I make everyday directly affect the success of our 8,000 students and 1,200 staff members,â€ stated Digiovanni. â€œAfter considering the merits of TeleMateâ€™s products, I am excited to receive this on behalf of MCS. I look forward to the immediate cost savings we will gain and the potential long-term benefits this will ultimately produce.â€
NetSpective filters across millions of URLs grouped into over 100 categories. It provides administrators with an easy way to monitor, block and report on undesirable Internet traffic such as anonymous web proxies, malware, online chat, peer-to-peer applications and more. The solution also extends content filtering enforcement to mobile devices including iPhones, iPads, and Android, MacBook and Windows tablets. As â€œBring Your Own Deviceâ€ initiatives prevail, NetSpective provides security beyond the desktop to balance effective digital learning with safe classroom environments.
The next â€œWeb Filtering for a Yearâ€ promotion will be announced exclusively for attendees at the Florida Educational Technology Conference (FETC) from January 23 until January 26, 2012 in Orlando, Florida; and at the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) conference from February 6 until February 10, 2012 in Austin, Texas.
