Smoothwall, which develops 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 UK and internationally following the appointment of former Tesla director Georg Ell in May.
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 UK education sector. Future Digital provides real-time, cloud-based, monitoring solutions with highly visual and intuitive dashboards.
Georg Ell, CEO of Smoothwall, said: “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.
“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 safeguarding is a fundamental duty in organisations of all types and sizes and our mission is to support that with robust, powerful, user-friendly solutions.”
Future Digital’s customers will see no disruption in service and support.
