Social Sentinel is proud to announce it’s been named the Best Electronic Systems Technologies (BEST) Internet Safety solution by Campus Safety magazine. The company received the honor this week at the Campus Safety Conference East 2019, in Charlotte, N.C.
To achieve the award, Social Sentinel successfully met the judging criteria among a panel of industry experts and editors of Campus Safety. The BEST awards, now in its fourth year, honors superior security, law enforcement, emergency management and life-safety products and services for healthcare, higher education and K-12 campus protection pros.
“We are enormously proud of Social Sentinel’s growth and adoption by the education industry, and extremely grateful that we are a trusted partner to schools in keeping their students safe and supported,” says Dr. Gary Margolis, founder, and CEO of Social Sentinel. “Campus Safety magazine is a go-to source of information and insight, and it is an honor to be recognized by them for having the BEST Internet Safety solution.”
Social Sentinel has nearly doubled its employee base in the past year as its student safety technology has become more widely adopted by schools across the country. Using artificial intelligence, Social Sentinel’s solution scans content - public social media posts and authorized school-owned student email accounts - for indications of harm that require immediate attention, and for more subtle signals that a student may need support. This level of awareness leads to prevention of tragedies, and a richer level of support, which schools are finding is a critical part of their safety and student wellness programs.
