About Us

What we have built

Securly's cloud based solution was created in 2013 and is already used by 5% of the US K-12 student body. We are re-shaping long held views on what it means to keep kids safe online. We do this by making parents and educators equal partners in educational technology. We also allow safe access to sites like Facebook that enable digital citizenship.

How we started

Securly's founders wanted to bring their enterprise network security backgrounds to bear on a problem with social implications. Existing web-filtering solutions in K-12 were too complicated to setup and maintain. They were also way too focused on denying access. The same could be said of consumer parental control products. Securly's goal was to solve that pain point with solutions that took minutes to install while allowing kids to take their first steps into the digital world responsibly.
