After much development and planning, Securly is proud to announce 24 by securly:// which…
Hold on, is this a rip-off of the TV show “24” starring Kiefer Sutherland that took viewers on time-sensitive adventures in a post-9/11 world for an impressive 8 seasons on Fox?
What? No, that’s not even close. We’re excited about 24 by securly:// because it brings back the one factor missing from technology-based solutions: the human factor. 24 is important because there are times when urgency or context can be difficult for technology to determine, even an advanced artificial intelligence like ours. However, these determinations are absolutely necessary to distinguish active from passive warning signs. With 24, trained professionals can discern what tech cannot.
Wait a minute, so Securly hired trained professional Kiefer Sutherland to work a 24-hour shift alongside a robot sidekick? Bro, that sounds awesome!
While we appreciate Mr. Sutherland and his body of work, he has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on 24. The only thing that matters, and truly the primary motivation for rolling out 24, is making sure kids are safe…at all times.
Securly already monitors for such things as cyberbullying and self-harm across Filter and Auditor and administrators receive email alerts when such things are found. However, an email alert may not be seen until the next day. In some cases, that is already too late.
“The reality is that troublesome activities do happen, but not always between the hours of 9am and 5pm. Securly wants to minimize any chance of oversight by adding trained humans back into the equation,” says co-founder and CEO Vinay Mahadik.
Filter 24 automatically observes a student’s activity on the web, social media, and Youtube, while Auditor 24 scans Google emails. When an activity is flagged, a trained analyst will review the context in which it was used and, if necessary, the user’s history for insight into the bigger picture. Able to recognize the nuances of language and critically analyze a user’s history, a human can make determinations that technology may overlook. If flagged activities are cause for alarm, a Student Safety Analyst will alert the school in real-time via text or, if necessary, a phone call.
Sometimes the feeling of pain and isolation can be overwhelming at, say, 2AM on a Sunday. Fortunately, Securly is making sure that even when the rest of the world is asleep, the right folks are keeping an eye on the most vulnerable among us. Sometimes we just need a hero who is at the right place at the right time.
Hey, kinda like…
Yes, exactly like Kiefer Sutherland.
