Securly has become the industry leader in cloud-based, web filtering services for K-12 educational institutions. In 2013, Securly set out to create a different type of safe-web experience for students by combining ease of use with a platform that educators and parents can control together.
Existing web-filtering solutions in K-12 were too complicated to setup and maintain. They were also way too focused on denying access. The same could be said of consumer parental control products. Securly’s goal was to solve that pain point with solutions that took minutes to install while allowing kids to take their first steps into the digital world responsibly.
Securly’s cloud-based filtering platform is available multiple systems including Windows, iOS, Android and Chrome OS and is administrated by your student’s school. In March of this year, Securly announced the launch of Auditor. The free tool monitors managed Gmail accounts for signs of bullying or self-harm and is free forever for K-12 institutions.
Now, Securly has taken an even larger step by offering their Chromebook filtering service FREE to schools in and outside of the U.S. That’s free, forever. This is a huge announcement as most schools will dish out thousands of dollars each year for these types of content filtering products.
