Mr. Richard Hey
Head of ICT
Hillcrest Grammar and Preparatory School
Being a modern and one of the most respected small schools in Stockport and
Greater Manchester, Internet plays a key role in teaching and research activities. With
Internet being an inseparable part of academic curriculum, the school has a
responsibility to ensure that whatever exposure the students have to the Internet,
even outside the classroom, they do not encounter anything inappropriate or
harmful for their age.
Need of Web Content Filtering
“As a modern-day education school, it is necessary for us to provide the students with
access to the Internet as and how they require. Then again, we need to consider their
safety and ensure that they are not exposed to the content that is not suitable for their
viewing”, said Mr. Hey.
The Cyberoam Solution
Having been dissatisfied with CA Gateway Security, Hillcrest Grammar School was
looking for a solution that is easy to setup and maintain. CSE Vitman Ltd, a Cyberoam
Partner, introduced the school to Cyberoam. CSE Vitman Ltd helped Hillcrest
Grammar School scrutinize the varied features that Cyberoam has to offer, which
made them realize that Cyberoam is the best fit for all their requirements. They
purchased One (1) CR 50iNG and subscribed to Total Value Subscription (TVS) of
security services for Three (3) years. They deployed the appliance in Gateway Mode.
