Configuring Cloud Safe Network

This article is intended for IT Support at schools that use School Manager to manage students’ access to their network and internet connections.

Cloud Safe Network allows you to use Linewize technologies in a cloud-only environment without needing a physical Linewize appliance. Schools using Qustodio’s Safe Network feature must enable Cloud Safe Network.

What is the Cloud Safe Network?

Cloud Safe Network is an important component of the Linewize Cloud service. The Connect agent sends network safety checks to the service to determine if the network a device is connected to is safe or unsafe. All networks are considered unsafe by default.

IP Address Outcome
