Why SurfProtect®?

Developed in-house in 2004, SurfProtect® is one of the UK’s most trusted web filters. Designed specifically for the education sector, SurfProtect® offers affordable protection that keeps students safe online without impacting their learning experience.

Granular control:
Build a filtering policy that works for your school by applying individual filtering profiles for specific users and user groups. This means your students are protected whilst still being able to access age appropriate content.

Cloud-based deployment:
Benefit from advanced filtering without the hardware. SurfProtect provides you with greater flexibility and makes it easier for you to install and update.

KCSiE and Prevent Duty Compliant:
Implement appropriate filtering that provides safe learning experiences for your pupils and fulfils the DfE’s statutory requirements for schools and colleges.

In-house technical support:
As SurfProtect is developed at Exa HQ you have access to a dedicated support team that can perform diagnostics over the phone. Have a feature request? Our on-site service engineers are applying continuous improvements in-line with your feedback.

DfE filtering & monitoring Guidelines
