Bringing the Online Student Experience Full Circle
Securly released the K-12 market’s first cloud-based web filter product back in 2013. Now, the company supports over 7 million students in more than 2,000 school districts around the world. Securly’s latest announcement of the acquisition of TechPilot Labs ensures its continued growth within classrooms across the globe.
Designed specifically and exclusively for schools, TechPilot Labs began in 2012 with a unique concept: managing mobile devices in schools should be simple, teachers should have control over those devices in the classroom, and technology departments should be able to easily deploy, secure, and manage those devices.
Because founder Jarrett Volzer could not find a solution that met those needs, the spark for TechPilot Labs was ignited. Since then, the company has built its reputation on engaging both educators and technology departments in the device management process, starting with mobile device management, then adding classroom management in 2018.
As of this year, TechPilot Labs has been acquired by Securly. This alliance enabled schools to finally be able to manage and improve the use of digital devices, from start to finish.
The need is clear for a comprehensive solution that addresses not only the districts’ requirements to manage devices, filter websites and information, and monitor usage for safety, but also engages parents with a view into their child’s learning in the classroom and at home and empowers teachers to effectively manage technology in their classrooms. Securly has grown from a focus on web filtering to a more comprehensive solution for online student safety. Now, the company’s mission is expanding to focus more holistically on the overall success of the student, encompassing online protection, emotional safety, and educational empowerment.
