Tom Newton, VP of Product at Smoothwall commented:

“Back by popular demand, we are now running more sessions to help support DSLs, teachers and those involved in digital safeguarding understand the difference between web filtering and digital monitoring. It’s still one of the most common questions we get asked and DSLs must understand the differences.

We strive to support everyone in understanding these technologies so they can understand the tools and technologies at their disposal to help keep children safe online.”
