TORONTO - January 26, 2016 - Exinda, a global leader in network optimization and bandwidth management solutions, announced today that The Denton Independent School District has implemented Exinda Network Orchestrator to help manage the district's surge in mobile device usage and guarantee all Internet activity is in compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA).

The Denton Independent School District, one of the fastest growing school districts in Texas, supports the online activities of over 31,000 users across 42 locations. Vital to the success of Denton's digital learning initiatives is providing a safe and secure learning environment in accordance with CIPA, which requires schools to block access to inappropriate and offensive content. Tied to CIPA compliance is E-rate funding, a program that provides schools with affordable Internet Access.

"Exinda helped us identify and block VPN applications students were using to bypass the school's web filter," said Chris Langford, WAN Manager at Denton Independent School District. "Not only did we save 10 percent of our bandwidth, we are now able to enforce appropriate use of the network and maintain to a safe learning environment, in compliance with CIPA, and continue to receive E-rate funding."

"Exinda complements your existing content filter by blocking non-web based traffic," says Kevin Suitor, VP of Product Management. "With complete visibility, and control of your network we help you track and monitor VPN, TOR and special-built apps that bypass typical content filters to ensure a safe learning environment for your students."

After implementing Exinda Network Orchestrator, The Denton Independent School District was able to:

  • Monitor and report on all network traffic and identify how students and faculty are consuming bandwidth
  • Create policies to block non-web traffic to inappropriate sites and control recreational traffic such as Netflix, Snapchat, Kik and online gaming
  • Guarantee bandwidth for online testing and other critical learning applications
  • Eliminate wasteful consumption and avoid costly bandwidth upgrades
