Keeping your students safe and protected

An increasing number of schools are offering one-to-one computing schemes for their students. This technological evolution enables easy access to online resources for students across the UK. Although ‘EdTech’ undoubtedly aids modern day learning styles, if devices are not monitored or controlled, these schemes can become highly problematic. As a minimum, schools need to be enforcing stringent web filters to restrict online access. However, they also need to protect the overall safety and wellbeing of students. This cannot be achieved using web filtering alone..

Why choose Securly for your school?

Securly is far more than just a web filtering solution. It provides deep visibility into school-owned devices to safeguard children from online threats. Living in the digital age, a huge proportion of youngsters spend hours of their day online. However, as the prevalence of cyber-bullying and suicide rates are on the rise, it is important for schools to be able to monitor their students ‘online lives’. Securly’s web filtering, cyber-bullying monitoring, and self-harm alerts, provides incredible value to students, parents and staff. Students should not have to suffer in silence, schools need solutions that meet the dangers children are facing right now.

Features of Securly

Cyber-bullying detection

Securly Auditor uses artificial intelligence to monitor student’s social media posts, emails and web searches for signs of cyber-bullying or suicidal thoughts. Their sophisticated algorithm detects emotional language such as “I can’t handle this anymore” and “Nobody likes you” (it does not have to be obvious words like “suicide”). Parents and staff are notified immediately if worrying content is detected.

Safeguarding Tools

Since the widespread introduction of 1:1 schemes across the UK, schools are now responsible for the safeguarding of children whilst using these devices. Securly’s advanced monitoring capabilities not only identifies bullying and self-harm, it can also detect signs of terrorism and radicalisation. It meets the UK Safer Internet Center guidelines (supporting the requirements of Ofsted).

Web filtering

Securly’s cloud-based web-filtering addresses the complex challenges the education sector face in the digital age. It provides next generation web filtering capabilities which allows schools to enforce tailored filters to all devices both on and off campus. Securly utilises Pagescan which blacklists new websites on a daily basis. This ensures that new content is not able to slip through the net.

Securly provides deep visibility into their child’s online activity across school owned devices. They can view real-time data via the user-friendly dashboard, mobile app or weekly email reports.
