Data centre owners South West Communications Group has extended its work within the education sector with the launch of a web filtering service.

Already a supplier of telephone systems, lines, minutes and data networks to schools, colleges and universities throughout the South West, in South Wales and the South East, the Exeter-based company has used its Internet and data security expertise to enhance its service to the education sector.

Amid Prime Minister David Cameron’s recent calls for enhanced family-friendly filters for home online users, this new web filtering service includes intuitive reporting and management to provide filtering by year groups, secure virtual learning environments, such as Moodle, and defined networks for academic & administration purposes.

Sarah Flowers, South West Communications Group’s sales director, said: “Control over what web content students should or shouldn’t see is a major consideration for schools and colleges. There is a real responsibility to protect pupils from web-borne threats and to promote safe Internet use. We have sought out a solution that will provide educational organisations with the filtering tools they need to encourage creative and productive Internet use in a secure environment.”

For more information on web filtering, please call South West Communications Group on 01392 369369.

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
