Burlington, VT (January 16, 2019) – Social Sentinel is helping schools, universities and colleges across the country identify potential threats to safety made online and hear cries for help before tragedy strikes. A year-end look at the company’s 2018 results and major milestones show significant growth and momentum, reflecting the education industry’s desire to enhance its safety and security strategies with more proactive, cost-effective solutions that focus on prevention through awareness.

Social Sentinel’s solution allows the education industry to look for threats online in ways that are otherwise humanly impossible. Driven by a team that includes experts in school safety, security, engineering, education, data science, and linguistics, Social Sentinel’s technology scans upwards of 1 billion data points daily for threats of harm (known as “leakage”) across dozens of complex platforms.

“Social Sentinel’s numbers point toward our growth and success, but more importantly, they show that our clients trust us to be a part of their safety strategy and that our technology is helping to prevent school shootings, violence and other tragedies.”
