It All Started...

In 1985 DerbyTech, Inc. first established itself as a computer, Internet, and networking technologies provider. Through the '90s we built a foundation of excellent service in the education space.

Leaning on our relationships with schools, we began to open a new chapter. In 1999, we had the start of the industry's first context-sensitive web filter - Cipafilter was born.

We built a better web filter capable of evolving with the Internet landscape. A solution tailored to the needs of educators. A filter to provide the level of safety schools demand.

Currently, Cipafilter has a full library of technology to meet school's needs. Providing schools with easy to use reports, notification alerts, and an intuitive to use next-gen firewall, it's more than a filter. As the needs of educators evolve, so do we. Backed by our amazing service, we maintain a 99% call answer rate and a renewal rate over 90% since 2002. Give us a call to see how different we really are.
