In January 2017, Smoothwall launched Visigo, a brand new advanced keystroke monitoring solution that alerts safeguarding officers of suspicious or inappropriate behavior both online and offline. Visigo has been designed to provide advanced on-device monitoring that is moderated by machine learning and human specialists, helping to validate alerts and remove false positives should they arise. This allows you to concentrate on providing support and education to the children in your care, with peace of mind that you will be alerted should an incident arise. Currently, Visigo is the only monitoring solution to build a profile of its users, allowing accurate moderation between a one-off incident or a chain of events.
Our market leading SWG web filtering solution integrates easily, regardless of the environment, and has been developed to meet and exceed Ofsted requirements and Prevent Duty Legislation.

Furthermore, our BYOD support gives you the ability to secure and filter internet access across devices connected to your network, providing extended protection and peace of mind.
