Securly Launches @Risk Student Wellness Scores to Supplement Student Safety Offerings

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --A Securly, the leading K-12 student safety company, announces @Risk Student Wellness Scores, a groundbreaking new technology that utilizes human-enhanced AI to provide a comprehensive score of students' overall online wellness based on a compilation of their online history and activity. If the @Risk score exceeds the threshold for high-risk online behavior or sentiments, a student's at-risk level is flagged for review. The scores indicate the students' risk level as well as the urgency of intervention needed and the confidence of the assessment. Securly launched its cloud-based web filtering product, Filter, in 2013 in the K-12 market for school districts to use to achieve CIPA compliance by blocking porn, gambling, and proxy sites. In the years since, the company has grown from a focus on web filtering to a more comprehensive solution for online student safety and device management. Securly's 360 degree portfolio of products keep children safe online in school, the classroom, at home, and on-the-go. @Risk Student Wellness Scores supplements Securly's offerings by providing a holistic view of each students' online activity by analyzing students' web searches, website URLs browsed, email, social media posts, Youtube videos and searches, and more. From there, the algorithm compiles a comprehensive score for each student, giving a picture of their overall online wellness. The feature's algorithm operates at a speed that far surpasses human analysis, enabling Securly to pinpoint the students that need immediate intervention and help, and alert schools and staff right away. Vinay Mahadik, co-founder and CEO, explains, "@Risk gives us the ability to look at the fuller picture behind the kid's online life from what she is searching for, to what sites she has been visiting, to what her conversations with others in the district look like. It enables us to identify at-risk students at exponentially faster rates, and alert schools and staff immediately. We also look forward to connecting all the dots in a child's support system, and keeping parents in the loop of their child's wellness score."Securly is currently utilizing this new technology to supplement their 24 operations. Securly plans to make the scores available to schools in the future in their product UI. School administrators will be able to easily pull wellness reports on individual students, and Securly will be able to easily share a wellness report identifying concerning patterns for an individual student, school, or even an entire district.
