We were blown away by WebTitan's filtering capability and exceptional support. Very easy to use and very affordable, 10/10.

The Challenge

The number one challenge of Ölands Kommunalförbund [ÖKF] was to deploy a DNS filter to block pornographic content from 2,500 students and 400 staff in two K-9 schools.

ÖKF required a solution that was simple to use and deploy but would not affect the current IT environment.  Budget restraints were also an issue, so an affordable solution was required to fit the organizations budget.

“We looked at lots of solutions but the WebTitan DNS filter suited our requirements best. With WebTitan we could filter from the top-level right down so we could see what was being blocked and why".

“The WebTitan team took us through several online demos to show us exactly how the solutions would work in our environment. I felt the engineers really listening to our needs and helped customise the solution we needed".

WebTitan solved the main challenge facing ÖKF. “The solution works as expected, it filters the DNS requests for K-9 students and staff”.

Through the free trial of WebTitan, ÖKF discovered very quickly that WebTitan was a unique solution for the issues they faced.
