Introducing Cipafilter 9.4
Posted by Jim Giseburt on 03 May 2017 11:03 AM

We are happy to announce version 9.4 of our device firmware. With this latest iteration, we’ve focused on improving InSite™ reporting, enhancing our next-generation firewall capabilities, improving our notifications options, and adding the ability to create management users.

Content preview for YouTube Videos

Just like you can’t judge a book by its cover, you can’t always determine the content of a YouTube video based solely on its title. To help you understand what your students are watching, hits for YouTube videos in InSite™ Reports now provide you the option to play the video in-line. No need to open a new browser window and copy/paste the video’s URL. Just click the YouTube icon, and a small window will pop up and play the video. You can watch the exact videos your students have without ever leaving InSite™.

Next-Gen Firewall Enhancements

In 9.4, We’ve expanded the capabilities of our next-generation firewall to include Application Control, which extends our advanced DPI functionality to non-web traffic. In practice, this means you can block protocols such as DNS, FTP, or RDP, as well as services like Facebook, Netflix, or Skype. Additionally, we’ve added port forwarding and firewall hit counters, letting you know how many times configured rules have been triggered.

Improved Notifications

Introducing Cipafilter 9.2
Posted by Jim Giseburt on 06 December 2016 10:51 AM

We are happy to announce the latest version of our device firmware, Cipafilter 9.2. With this release we have focused on bringing you more advanced support for VPN, improved network monitoring capabilities, and new features like suspicious search term management that will help you more precisely control what content your students can access.

Live Status Dashboard

Live Status Dashboard

You have a lot of demand on your network, and being able to monitor traffic in real time can go a long way toward understanding those demands. For that reason, we've developed our Live Status Dashboard, where you can easily view live information in clear and concise charts and graphs to assess network usage.

  • Live scrolling displays current information and up to the last ten minutes of network activity so you can quickly appraise the health of your network.

  • An easy to read Line graph allows you to see bandwidth control in action, so that you can see that critical traffic is prioritized at a glance.

  • Live InSite™ report feed puts user monitoring on the same page as network monitoring for an easy to understand bird's eye view.

Improvements to VPN

We’ve heard your demands for improved VPN functionality, and we’ve answered the call by developing robust features you need for VPN enabled networking.

  • We’re expanding our support for the latest iOS and Chromebook devices using L2TP/IPSec VPN. These devices are seeing more frequent use by K-12 teachers and administrators, and Cipafilter ensures this equipment can access the network from anywhere.

  • We’ve improved VPN security features with the latest standards in next-gen encryption, so there is no need to worry whether...
