  • (1888PressRelease) January 08, 2011 - Reading UK - Redstor, a leading managed services, cloud storage and IT solutions provider, has today launched a new e-Safety service. Redstor e-Safety will be available to Local Authority and education IT service providers in the UK to help schools protect against the rising threat of cyber bullying.

    Redstor will continue to work through its vast network of partners and build upon relationships with over 85 Local Authorities and education service providers to provide this new e-safety service to schools and educational establishments.

    Redstor e-Safety, powered by Securus, will ensure a safe online working environment for pupils and teachers by capturing ICT issues and misuse. The service identifies and captures incidents such as cyberbullying, access to harmful web sites, the un-safe or inappropriate use of email, computer programs and online applications.

    The launch of Redstor e-Safety comes at a time when Ofsted has highlighted Internet safety and the importance of safeguarding against online bullying and cyber abuse while providing pupils with increased access to Internet based technologies.

    The new service captures child protection and behavioral issues such as the use of proxy bypass sites, contact with strangers, inappropriate content uploaded to a school's network as well as key words indicating self-harm and drugs.

    Paul Evans, Managing Director at Redstor, said: "Redstor e-Safety allows pupils and staff to feel more confident about using new technologies, safe in the knowledge the ICT network is monitored and protected."

    Evans continues, "Ofsted has stated that Headteachers must meet a legal duty of care to protect pupils and staff and provide a safe learning environment yet without monitoring technology many schools are unaware if a pupil is at risk on-line. Redstor e-Safety allows Schools and ICT service providers to safely manage any schools ICT network, providing a constant vigil for pupils and staff."
