CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Smoothwall, a leading developer of web filtering and monitoring solutions, has today launched RADAR, a cloud-based active monitoring solution in the U.S.
The product launch comes two months after Smoothwall’s acquisition of U.K. online safeguarding company, Future Digital. RADAR is Smoothwall’s latest solution, complementing its suite of online safety products that are used in over 1,000 schools in the U.S. and more than 10,000 schools worldwide.
RADAR provides intelligent and intuitive student computer activity monitoring to identify online threats before they become real-life incidents. Using a pre-graded severity alert system, RADAR instantly notifies administrators of critical incidents such as cyberbullying, self-harm, suicide, and radicalization. With a highly visual interface, RADAR helps administrators evaluate current themes in student online activity and enables staff to view the visual context of an alert. Individual online and offline keystroke monitoring prompts the software to capture everything displayed or typed on the device.
The software offers a light process using limited system resources, including when taking screen captures. Schools are also able to customize key phrases and words to monitor in addition to the up-to-date RADAR libraries to detect critical online activity, both on and off-site.
“We are excited to expand our capabilities with RADAR’s groundbreaking technology in the U.S.,” said Georg Ell, CEO of Smoothwall. “Student safety is every school’s priority, it is imperative for administrators to consider the value of online safety when making school safety plans. Our next-generation monitoring efficiently detects high-risk online and offline activity by combining clever keystroke monitoring and render interpretation. RADAR is Smoothwall’s 21st-century proactive threat assessment solution.”
RADAR is securely hosted on Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing service and is available on Windows, Mac, iOS, and will soon be available for Chromebooks.
