Smoothwall Acquires Future Digital


Smoothwall Acquires Future Digital

Acquisition adds to Smoothwall’s market-leading web filtering and safeguarding solutions as it expands its presence in the UK, US and internationally – now covering over 10,000 schools.

CHARLOTTE - Smoothwall, the market-leading developer of web filtering and monitoring solutions, has today announced it has acquired digital safeguarding company Future Digital. The acquisition comes as Smoothwall continues to grow its presence in the student online protection sector in the US and internationally following the appointment of former Tesla director Georg Ell in May this year.

In acquiring Future Digital, Smoothwall is adding to its existing portfolio of safeguarding and filtering solutions, cementing the company’s position as the number one provider of safeguarding technology in the US and UK education sectors. Future Digital provides real-time, cloud-based, monitoring solutions with highly visual and intuitive dashboards. This perfectly complements Smoothwall’s Safeguarding suite which offers additional reporting functionality and monitoring of internet behavior. By offering both solutions, Smoothwall is now able to provide customers with a range of student safeguarding options, suited to their needs.

“We are thrilled to incorporate Future Digital into Smoothwall, with our two product sets complementing each other well. This will allow us to offer a bigger range of safeguarding and filtering services based on our customers’ requirements,” said Georg Ell, CEO of Smoothwall. “Smoothwall has a great reputation across a number of sectors and bringing Future Digital into the fold only strengthens that. In Education alone we will now be serving over 10,000 schools globally. We believe that keeping students safe online is a fundamental duty in educational organizations of all types and sizes and our mission is to support that with robust, powerful, user-friendly solutions.”

Future Digital’s 2000+ existing customers will see no disruption in service and support. Smoothwall will continue to innovate as it combines the two teams and enhances the product offering.
