GoGuardian Announces Centralized Cloud-Based Filtering and Ad Block Tool

April 2, 2019

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 2, 2019--GoGuardian, a leading education technology SaaS provider, today announced the general availability of GoGuardian DNS, a unified and scalable cross-platform cloud filtering solution designed to provide K-12 schools the ability to confidently filter all student, staff and guest devices regardless of platform. Additionally, GoGuardian DNS users can deploy AdDeflect™, an ad block feature to reduce student distraction and network bandwidth usage.

As more schools manage Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs as well as complex network ecosystems, it’s critical that network filtering doesn’t compromise time and performance. Through GoGuardian DNS, schools can efficiently manage and help protect all devices on a school network through a single, agile platform, eliminating the need to replace clunky and expensive filtering hardware to meet network demands. GoGuardian DNS simplifies schools’ technical environments and eliminates the cost incurred when relying on hardware-based filter solutions to support growing network performance needs.

“GoGuardian DNS integrates seamlessly with our current filtering setup, saving us time and effort,” explained Scott Trautwein, director of technology for Brush School District. “With this new DNS feature, we are able to keep all our network devices in CIPA compliance without the need for a physical internet filter tool. GoGuardian is always improving and updating their interface, and their support is always available and quick to offer assistance.”

GoGuardian DNS users can also deploy AdDeflect, a unique ad block feature that removes ads on web pages and YouTube. AdDeflect helps protects students from harmful and distracting ads displayed across all devices and gives teachers more distraction-free instructional time. Also, by cutting down network usage while improving performance, network bandwidth is increased through AdDeflect.

“Schools are looking for a one-stop solution to manage their on-campus filtering for all devices without the hassle of lengthy hardware installation and expensive software maintenance,” said Tyler Shaddix, chief product officer of GoGuardian. “GoGuardian DNS provides schools with a convenient centralized filter enabling thorough and agile protection across the entire network ecosystem without the need for a physical device.”
