Securly Filter

As I stated earlier, if you have iPads in a 1 to 1 usage, [Securly Filter] is your best filter. Students cannot break it or mess with any settings on a device that has an MDM setup.

Sophos Web Content Filtering

Sophos Web Content Filtering suits better along every organization that needs web filtering base on roles/users, and schedules to be applied throughout the network. All IT Admins have the need to control and report to General Management what are the users doing within their internet surfing, along with Web Protection and Productivity. This is why, in my opinion, every network/corporation/home network should have web filtering for categorization, protection and reporting. I do not see a scenario where it is less appropriate since nowadays everything is network connected to the Internet, so everything within our networks should be reported and controlled.

I don't like giving a 10 since everyone always has room for improvement, and while Securly is doing an awesome job, there is still room for improvement across the board.

Securly Filter

Securly has a huge advantage over network filters when dealing with the past year of at home learning and take home device programs. It works as well as other device based filters, and it's an exceptionally good deal if you were able to lock in reduced pricing from previous years.

Sophos Web Content Filtering

We select Sophos (all of their product line) because of the awesome tech support and level of Next Generation commitment to deliver to us as representatives to give to our end users. This is mainly why I will always recommend Sophos products. There are many brands that offer similar technology, but for us, the only product that delivers post service support, is always Sophos.
