3 Things to Know for April
1. Solve your SSL problems right now.
The No. 1 frustration in school IT departments right now is how to handle encrypted traffic over sites like Google and YouTube. VP of Development Rob Chambers has written a blog post explaining why decrypting is the way to go. Read why you should decrypt — and exactly how to configure your Lightspeed Systems Web Filter for advanced SSL decryption — here.
2. Put this in your calendar for tomorrow.
I’m co-presenting a webinar tomorrow with Michael Estrada from Roselle Park School District. We’ll be talking mobile devices, management, filtering, classroom use, and more at 10 AM PST/1 PM EDT. Learn more and register here. (If you can’t make it, please register anyway; you’ll get a link to the recording in the follow-up email.)
3. Got a service issue? Check the Status page first.
If you’re having trouble with any of your Lightspeed Systems solutions, take a look at the Status page. Any service interruptions or maintenance advisories will be posted here so you won’t lose any time troubleshooting.
