AI-powered web filter for schools. The internet, minus the harmful stuff.

Real-time protection

The internet is an incredible resource, but it contains content that students shouldn’t be seeing. Our web filter for schools analyses content in real-time to ensure learners are protected online, in the classroom and beyond.

150 million URLs, every day

Our filtering solution for schools uses an AI-powered categorisation name service (CNS) to comb through all HTTP, HTTPS and FTP web traffic to block web content containing any pornography, substance abuse, extremism and many other categories of sensitive material.

Impero web:check protects school networks from encrypted traffic – including virus-based threats and proxy avoidance – and ensures that every device on the network is secure.

A single deployment 

Impero web:check only needs one set up, so it can provide filtering services to multiple locations (such as a MAT) in a single deployment.

Impero’s school internet filtering software supports central policy management and reporting requirements – but it’s still easy to delegate permissions to each school. Filtering actions can be applied at a school, group or individual basis, to allow the right access to the right user, at the right time.

Protect your students everywhere

Impero’s cloud based web filtering for schools protects students on all devices, regardless of their location, directing all traffic back to the school via an on-device filter, available as an add-on to Impero web:check.

Impero web:check makes it simple to identify students who are misbehaving on the network or at risk of harm. Integrating with popular directory systems such as Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Azure Directory, Apple Open Directory and Google Directory, individual users are identified using IP address and directory synchronisation.

Safe learning for multi-lingual students

Impero web:check reviews URL data in over 45 languages to detect high-risk content, including Welsh, Polish, French, Arabic, Mandarin and Spanish - ideal for schools where English is a second language.

Our web filtering software for schools ensures multi-lingual students are just as safe as everyone else.



Ofsted & Prevent Duty compliant

Ofsted and The Prevent Duty outline important responsibilities for schools to protect students from inappropriate content, including extremism, radicalisation, self-harm and suicide. Our web filter for schools is designed from the ground up to meet these requirements, making it easier than ever to fulfil their legal duty of care.
