Identify Risks

Gather Information

Take Action

securus is an online safety solution that protects students and staff by alerting schools’ safeguarding teams to inappropriate or potentially harmful behaviour”.

What is securus?

securus is a cloud based online safety solution that monitors all activity that takes place both within and outside of places of learning, ensuring that young people are safeguarded against the wide range of threats they face whilst engaged in online occupations.

securus protects vulnerable young people from a wide variety of the issues presented by online technology. By monitoring all electronic activity across a school’s network, securus alerts school authorities to anything that suggests a child may be at risk or is breaching acceptable use policies.

A screen capture is taken of every incident, showing what was displayed at the time, who was involved and when the incident took place. Screen captures enable staff to assess and respond to potentially serious or disruptive situations with confidence. They can decide on the most appropriate actions to take and in this way help the school to meet Ofsted’s safeguarding criteria.

As well as providing comprehensive online safety protection, securus encourages pupils to think for themselves and take greater responsibility for their actions. This leads to dramatic improvements in student on and offline behaviour.

Risk Categorisation

securus covers different areas of concern and allows administrators to group violations in effective bundles.

Categories include such areas as:

  • Cyberbullying
  • Attempts to reach banned websites
  • Viewing explicit images or files
  • Child sexual exploitation
  • Faith/gender/racial discrimination and abuse

What does securus do?

Compatible with Windows, Mac and Chromebook, securus detects inappropriate content as soon as it appears on screen, whether it has been keyed in by a user or simply appears on their screen. This enables securus to capture issues that are frequently missed by filtering and classroom management systems, which are easily by-passed and fail to detect malicious or other unwanted behaviour. It also ensures that any worrying content is recorded before it can be hidden or deleted, making it impossible for bullies or vulnerable children to cover their tracks.

securus can monitor every computer in a school regardless of whether or not it is connected to the network and can capture issues in any application, including:
  • MS Word, PowerPoint, Publisher etc
  • Websites, blogs, games and social networks such as Facebook
  • Email and instant messaging systems
  • Web browsers
