Though Cipafilter is known for being the most effective context-sensitive web filter created for K-12, it’s built upon a powerful next-generation firewall. Our devices can be used alongside almost any firewall appliance out there, but most of our customers have found Cipafilter to be the best option for both their web filtering and firewall needs. This reduces expense and complexity by removing an unnecessary device/component from both your shopping list and your network.
With all the benefits of a traditional firewall appliance, our next-gen firewall is more evolved with more powerful features. We started with the industry standard stateful firewall and included deep packet inspection functionality. Then we developed user awareness, allowing varying access for different groups. Teachers and students can log into the same network and the firewall will authenticate them, allowing for different user experiences as necessary.
We’ve incorporated Application Control, enabling you to block traffic by domain or by application, as necessary. We’ve also included ISP grade Bandwidth Control, automatically prioritizing critical traffic over the unimportant, as well as granular control over group permissions and permissions scheduling.
Our firewall appliance also allows you to make use of L2TP/IPSEC capabilities and multi-gateway routing. All paired with our web filter and additional features like SSL decryption, safe-search enforcement, and InSite™ Reporting, all packed in our powerful user-friendly interface.
Whether you’re looking for a firewall appliance, a content filter, or an integrated firewall and web filter solution, Cipafilter is the right solution for you. For more information, check out our feature list or feel free to contact us to schedule a conversation with our team.
