Lightspeed supports Chrome OS, Mac, Windows and iOS; GoGuardian supports Chrome OS, and its beta Windows product doesn’t filter many apps and browsers.
Lightspeed analyzes more online activity and web visits by category and AI to most accurately ID safety threats.
Classroom uses AI to automatically monitor classroom devices; GoGuardian Teacher forces teachers to monitor 30 dynamic screens at once.
Lightspeed has the most advanced, drill-down reporting and easily shareable reports; their reports provide limited data.
Lightspeed’s best-in-the-biz database categorizes 2 million websites per day and blocks unknown traffic; GoGuardian’s database categorizes only 2,000 websites per day and doesn’t block unknown traffic. (Warning: this means with GoGuardian, your students can easily access adult content!)
Lightspeed has accurately categorized 100 million-plus YouTube videos; their product relies on YouTube’s inaccurate, user-reported categories.
Lightspeed offers on-device SSL decryption that can’t be removed by students; their solution decrypts SSL only on Chrome browsers.
Lightspeed is built on 20 years of experience filtering schools and protecting students; their company has been around for just four years.
Lightspeed has one-click, on-off controls for specific social media channels, including read-only (no posting) options; their solution doesn’t.
Lightspeed offers automated, emailed parent reports; GoGuardian doesn’t have parent reporting.
