With lots of schools converting to Google and introducing Chromebooks, a need has arisen for user based filtering on these devices. One solution to this is to implement RM Buzz. Deploying RM Buzz will mean that Chromebook users are filtered whether they are at school or at home, with all the same monitoring capabilities allowing you to run web filtering reports against your Google users. You can also set up specific filtering policies based on your Google OU structure e.g. different levels of filtering for staff and students. All of this can be managed within your existing SafetyNet account.
RM Buzz allows you to sync users from multiple sources including RM Unify or directly from G Suite for Education. If your school currently has user based filtering set up, which syncs between users from your Microsoft Active Directory to RM Unify and then SafetyNet, and you wish to sync Chromebooks directly from another source – such as directly from Google, then there would be an additional annual charge of £450 PA, which we would add onto your HfL Broadband invoice.
If you are interested in purchasing RM Buzz then please contact the HfL Broadband service desk either using firstname.lastname@example.org or 01438 844777 Opt.1 then Opt.2. Once you have RM Buzz activated within your SafetyNet account, a guide to configuring and deploying it can be found here: RM Buzz Support.
