CATEGORY-BASED WEB CONTENT FILTER FOR CHROMEBOOKS, WINDOWS AND IOS.
A cloud-based, category-based web content filter that appropriately filters and blocks students from harmful or inappropriate content. Devices provided to students to take away from school are protected by Senso's Content Filter with the same protective measures in place, while on and off your network.
Benefits of Content Filtering
Senso’s cloud-based, category web content filter provides you with peace of mind that when students are using school-owned devices to learn and work away from school, they are appropriately filtered and blocked from harmful or inappropriate content.
Senso’s cloud filter not only benefits from extensive category-based libraries to block inappropriate websites, but also uses Artificial Intelligence to check the content of every website a student attempts to visit and will proactively include any inappropriate websites within the filtering libraries.

“Instant help with live chat.
We have been using Senso now for the past 2 years and it’s truly a great product. The web filter is an invaluable eSafety tool capturing violations triggered by URLs or Keywords, which are then easily managed in the Admin Console.
We also use to good effect the Detections libraries where we can block specific keywords/URL’s and whitelist them. The overview you get in the console is very informative and at your fingertips are reports of Violations logs, Application logs, Website logs and Archived logs.
The main benefit of Senso above others in this field is their support, you receive almost instant help with their live chat feature, which is so refreshing in a fast-paced environment where you need to resolve issues quickly.”

SENSO.CLOUD IS HERE TO SUPPORT YOU IN YOUR COMPLIANCE WITH STATUTORY SAFEGUARDING GUIDANCE.The UK government lays out statutory guidance for schools and colleges to adhere to in relation to safeguarding, most notably Keeping Children Safe in Education. There are also specific filtering and monitoring standards devised by the Department for Education. In line with these standards, Senso is a member of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and signed up to the Counter-Terrorism Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU) list, and our web filter blocks access to illegal content including child sexual abuse material. Keeping in mind that no filter can be 100% effective, schools need to ensure that there are effective filtering strategies in place alongside the filtering system. This means undertaking regular checks and carrying out reviews, at least once a year, to assess the effectiveness of the overall safeguarding strategy.
