  • Cloud-based approach allows fast deployment and scalability.
  • Eases the burden on Virginia schools of providing infrastructure for cybersecurity labs.
  • Resources are provided at no cost to Virginia public high schools, colleges, and universities.
  • Implements technology protection measures to block or filter Internet access to pictures that are: (a) obscene; (b) child pornography; or (c) harmful to minors in order to meet requirements set forward by the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA).
