IPS - iPad Profiling Service

Protecting your kids.
What your children do and don't do on the internet is completely out of your control - or is it? Most K-12 and high schools now require that your children have an iPad or at least have access to one. In the latter scenario, the school provides the iPad which is usually 'supervised'. This means that the iPad has been set up with special controls in place that do not allow the iPad to do certain things or access certain content. Of course, this is something as a parent, you'd be happy about. But what about the iPad your school asked you to buy for them or sone they already own - or their home laptop for example?

Protecting your kids out of School.
So, your kids are protected to an extent at school - at least with school devices, but what about at home or wherever else they go with their own iPad of laptop? Most parents will be aware of parental controls that are standard on iPads and Apple laptops and sometimes use those controls - most don't. And for the most part, kids are pretty smart when it comes to restrictions such as this and circumvent them fairly quickly without your knowledge.

As parents, we do not have the time to spend learning about security and correctly setting up parental controls - we certainly don't really understand how we can easily lock down their devices to do what we want, monitor what they do and react to things they shouldn't be doing - nor do we know how. Parenting is a full time job of course, on top of our full-time jobs, so here at Leading Edge Port, we've worked hard on finding a solution - and we have one.

You're in control of what your kids do on their iPads. Are you?
By using our iPad Profiling Service [ IPS ], the answer is yes. Put simply, we have set up many schools, government agencies and small to large businesses with large numbers of iPad. When we do this, we custom develop what's called a 'profile' with our customer that is applied in bulk to these devices when they buy them. Using software here at our head office, we can see where those iPads are, what they're doing and monitor every aspect of them. We can update them, lock them, locate them, add or remove Apps, change access to different types of internet content - all wirelessly and over-the-air with no interraction from the person using the iPad.

We use this same technology for your iPad. Using our service, we can apply a special 'parents' profile to your new iPad purchased from us. We have generic profiles we use or we can develop one for you. You can purchase it as a one-off or update it regularly. We can give you access to software that allows you to monitor the device yourself, or we can add it to our systems here to enable us to action items as you request on a pro-rata basis.

Total control, total value.
Our service is completely unique. Sure others will follow, but we've been doing this for a long time at the highest level and offer the same level of expertise to your most valuable asset - your kids. Talk to our Education Specialist on 02 6584 4955 for further info. We are able to apply this service to existing iPads and also iPads purchased elsewhere at additional cost.
