TerminatorX for Schools
*** Also blocks proxy sites *** See Pupils 'bypassing school internet security'
There are a number of reasons why a school will benefit from the protection that TerminatorX offers. They will:
TerminatorX was originally developed in consultation with teaching staff at an Adult Education College. There were problems with the younger adults (16 to 25) who were using KaZaA, MSN Messenger and games during classes. Due to the layout of some of the rooms, the teachers could not see all of the workstation screens at one time.
As the teachers moved around the classrooms the students used 'Alt-Tab' or 'Alt-F4' to remove the Messengers etc. from the screen and so appear to be working normally.
TerminatorX was made to run invisibly on workstations looking at the applications and web sites that were running. Those that were in a banned list chosen by the network administrators were simply shut down within a second of them being started.
Warren Software designed TerminatorX to be selective so that different groups of users could be treated differently and staff were still able to use, for example, Messenger applications for useful college activities.
As TerminatorX was aimed mainly at Education, pricing was set so that medium-sized schools could easily afford to purchase TerminatorX.
The licensing allows flexibility and is not dependent on the number of servers or workstations in a school. The Site license covers an area within the school:
Site license - an unlimited number of workstations on an unlimited number of servers within a single organisation. The workstations must be enclosed within a circle of diameter 200 metres. Each license covers one such circle. More than one license is required if your organisation wishes to use TerminatorX on workstations that are not within a single such area.
You can use TerminatorX across a whole site (200 metre diameter) for just £200
