Trailblaze IT are partnered with Impero, the award-winning innovative next-generation web filtering solution. Impero provides real-time visibility, granular controls, and age-appropriate policy management on any device and web browser. Students will have a positive and safe user experience, while administrators will always have full visibility into student and network activity. This allows you to stop over-blocking and provide safe access to valuable online educational content.

Our web filtering service complies with the Government guidance on Keeping Children Safe in Education 2023 (KCSiE 2023), and meets the Digital and Technology Standards in Schools and Colleges. Visit our blog post Changes to Keeping Children Safe in Education to read more regarding the latest updates to KCSiE. We are working with lots of schools to help them become compliant, providing the latest filtering technology on the market.

Features of our Filtering Solution:


Content aware filtering


Provides central controls to filter across multiple school sites within a Trust by setting a central policy.


Cloud filtering allows for full content filtering and reporting of devices whether onsite or offsite


Offers multi-level web category filtering, which is ground-breaking to the market.


Impero works by filtering an entire device, providing enhanced protection. For example, on iPads we can filter the full iPad across all apps, website content, promotional videos and advertising content - not limited to just filtering web search content.


Show contextual history by user and/or device


We are able to divide the filtering between every aspect of a web page or application. For example, we are able to allow access to Youtube for students but control each aspect of the platform such as blocking the promotional videos and we can disable the chat functionality and block or allow specific channels.


All our software complies with the UK Safer Internet Filtering Standards.


All our data centres are based within the UK.


Web Filtering in Real Time

Impero’s intelligent web filtering provides multiple layers of cross-platform intelligence that enable safety and security benefits, including real-time visibility, control of non-managed devices, filter circumvention and ransomware defense.


Protect students anywhere

Impero’s web filtering solution for schools uses a combination of device-based agents, cloud services, or on-premises hardware to protect students on any device, regardless of their location. Seamless integration with popular directory services, including Microsoft Active Directory, Apple Open Directory, and Google Workspace, ensures age-appropriate policy management and accurate reporting.


Fully Managed

Our engineers are experts in Filtering and Firewall Management and we provide consistent monitoring to ensure that your network is always protected. We provide fully managed Connection Level Filtering to guarantee that your school network is safe from harmful content, whilst ensuring staff can still access the sites that they need.

What are the different Broadband options?

We have several broadband options to cater for any budget and size of school, including Standard Broadband (FTTC), Full Fibre Broadband (FTTP) or Leased Line. We have outlined the differences between each option below.


Standard Broadband (FTTC)

FTTC stands for ‘Fibre to the Cabinet’ and is a fast broadband option providing up to 80 Mbps for downloads and 20 Mbs for uploads. It uses a combination of fibre and copper cables to deliver broadband into the premises via existing copper telephone wires.


Full-Fibre broadband (FTTP)

FTTP is ‘Fibre to the Premise’ which is a true full fibre connection directly to your school. FTTP provides the fastest broadband speed available, at a potential 1000Mbps download speed.


Leased Line

Leased Line is a full-fibre, private internet connection that serves your school only. This means that your internet connection speed won’t be affected by other users at peak times. This is the best available broadband, providing lightening fast speeds of up to 10Gb/s. Leased Lines also provide higher security and dedicated support & maintenance than other broadband options.

Partner with Giganet

We are proud to be a partner with Giganet, one of the leading providers of full fibre services across the UK. Giganet offer lighting-fast and resilient Full Fibre connectivity and won ‘Overall Fibre Provider of the Year’ at the 2022 Fibre Provider Awards.
