Securus and eSafety4schools announce a new partnership offering leading online monitoring and filtering solutions


Securus and eSafety4schools are delighted to announce a new partnership that will offer a combination of leading online monitoring and filtering, together with a comprehensive and fully managed service, to ensure greater safeguarding in schools.

Working together, Securus and eSafety4schools provide a range of solutions to schools that help ensure that children are not exposed to inappropriate online danger. This approach works by monitoring for signs of troubling or risky behavior and applying flexible content and web filtering policies as well as reporting without over-blocking. Easy-to set-rules and unparalleled security features & functionality give schools enterprise level protection. By combining both approaches the solutions ensure the best possible online safeguarding is in place.

Busy Designated Safeguarding Leads with responsibility for ensuring the children and students in their care are safe can now take advantage of our fully managed service staffed by a team of education specialists experienced in safeguarding who actively monitor the schools online behaviour on their behalf. Reviewing activity every day, they help contextualize issues that come to light and alert the school to anything that needs their immediate attention.

Securus and eSafety4school’s solutions also enable schools to fully meet the latest government statutory guidance covering Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE) and the Prevent Duty from an online safeguarding perspective.

Bernard Snowe, Securus CEO, said of the new service:
“Securus is delighted to be partnering with eSafety4schools as we both share a clear commitment to help schools meet the challenges they face to safeguard the school network and primarily to keep children safe online. Together with the active monitoring managed service, used in conjunction with our range of products, we can now provide education customers with a total comprehensive safeguarding solution. At Securus we constantly strive to provide greater support to schools for online safety and our partnership with eSafety4schools gives us exactly the opportunity to deliver this”.
