New Term, New Students, New Devices, New Online Risks….

Math Lesson #1

The summer vacation is a time for a relaxing break, however across the 7-week breather the web has done anything but relax. Based on an average day online, it’s thrown up a whole host of new threats. Here at Bloxx we set ourselves a little Math homework and our research has concluded that during the holidays the wonderful World Wide Web has produced:
  • 10,160,640 new Anonymous Proxies
  • Over 7 million hrs of new YouTube video
  • Over 232 billion pieces of Facebook content
  • Almost 3 billion Google searches
(And we can only speculate that a high % of this will be wildly inappropriate for your students, not to mention illegal) The staggering figures are another key example as to why data base filters are no longer fit for purpose to keep pace with the evolution of the web… And it really doesn’t take a Math genius to calculate that using a legacy (or database driven) method of filtering the web,  coupled with students spending growing amounts of time online, and consuming more and more content equates to increased risk.. Can you guarantee that your web filter ready to combat the 10,160,640 new Anonymous Proxy sites that have sprung up over the holiday period? And if not, where does leave you in regards to Compliance?
