OctoGate in practice

Regardless of in schools, industrial companies or hotels, computers and the internet have become an inseparable part of daily life for the majority of people. More and more people are using these media not only to play, but also to obtain information. One cannot ignore this fact. However, the integration of this medium also involves dangers. Viruses, distraction from lessons and work, bullying and many other risks are reasons why internet is not used as a teaching or working medium.

Let a professional do the job! OctoGate protects you, not only from these dangers, but also provides an additional benefit to your school or your business.


The digital transformation keeps strengthening its way into the classrooms. Children and young people use the internet not only to play, but use it actively to obtain information.

However, there are a series of dangers:

  • Distraction from lessons
  • Viruses on the school computer
  • Cyber bullying

The OctoGate protects you and your students effectively against these negative issues.

Content Filter: Set up limits
You decide which websites your students are authorised to access. This way all users stay focused on the current learning lesson and not succumb to the temptation to do other things.

OctoGroupware: cooperation and availability of files
With the "OctoGroupware" software you develop the collaboration. You can distribute data or tasks to the participants and check the results at a later time.

All data is outside school safely accessible over the OctoGate. As a result the USB flash drives are a thing of the past. This is firstly comfortable and secondly it increases the security of the entire network. USB sticks are one of the most common reasons for virus attacks. From primary school with 10 workstations all the way to university with 2,000 workstations, OctoGate is prepared for all requirements such as compliance with the current legal guidelines (Breach of Duty of Care, IT Security Act) especially for the school system designed Access-Points, protection of the network against hacker attacks, spam and virus infections.

Health Service

Your patients are grateful for any distraction they can get, while staying at your hospital. A fast and secure wireless network makes a significant contribution. 

However with all the care, the security for your hospital and for the patients themselves must not be neglected. Therefore the use of OctoGate is advisable to fight off viruses, spam and many other threats.

Protection of the internal network

Natürlich benötigt das interne Krankenhaus-Netzwerk gegenüber dem Patienten WLAN einen besonderen Schutz, damit nicht Unbefugte Zutritt erlangen. Mit der OctoGate Firewall können Sie mit wenigAufwand VLANs erstellen. Dadurch erstellen Sie getrennte Netzwerke. Es ist somit nicht möglich, dass ein Patient oder eine andere 3. Person sich über das WLAN Zugang verschaft zum internen Krankenhaus-Netzwerk.

Weitere nützliche Funktionen sind:

  • You can carry out prioritisations in your network for any especially important devices and workstations.
  • You have the option to use multiple internet lines parallel.
  • Create your own hospital home page and inform herewith your patients and staff.
