We chose Securly this year because of its unmatched ability and top notch commitment to ... bring our parents into partnership in monitoring their children’s Internet activity on a 24/7 basis
(PRWEB) June 01, 2016
Securly, Inc. – the world's leading cloud-based provider of Internet security for K-12 schools – today announced that several strategic customers in the state of Illinois had signed multi-year contracts with the company. Securly is now on track for acquiring 10% market share in Illinois by the end of FY 2016. Customers who have entrusted their web-filtering needs to the Securly cloud include Champaign Schools (home of the Univ. of Illinois’ flagship university), Leyden (one of Google’s flagship early adopters of Chromebooks), St. Charles and Gurnee (a pioneering adopter of the Obama Administration’s Future Ready pledge). While previous customers have come on board largely as a result of Securly’s cloud positioning, these customers were a direct result of School Districts’ intense interest around the company’s Parent E-mail Reports and Portal offerings.
With schools going 1:1 in the thousands and also taking the extra step of sending devices home with the students, the conversation within K-12 has moved from baseline CIPA compliance to the more pertinent question of “What does the school need to do to address parental anxiety around take-home devices?” Securly provides schools an out-of-the-box solution to this hitherto unsolved problem with free access to Parent E-mail Reports and Portal.
Says Phil Hintz (Director of Technology at Gurnee and the recipient of ISTE’s 2015 Award for Outstanding Leadership) on his District’s decision to go with Securly - “We chose Securly this year because of its unmatched ability and top notch commitment to not only keep our students safe, but also to bring our parents into partnership in monitoring their children’s Internet activity on a 24/7 basis. Securly gives our parents a dashboard that opens a window into their children’s online environment. Thanks to Securly, our parents monitor this environment and shape their child's screen-time into being a productive experience.”
