The Internet provides high exposure to malicious content with a direct impact on children’s safety such as Illicit, violent and pornographic material to name a few. Recent studies show the problem continues with 1 in 4 children exposed to racism
or hate messages and over 2,200 counselling sessions with young people took place in 2017/18 related to online sexual exploitation which is a 44% increase from the previous year. Children are exposed to this risk both at home and at school.

OnlynShield is a highly automated safeguarding software superseding the obsolete techniques in use today with an innovative and intelligent child-safety shield centred around a full prevent-strategy consisting of the following processes: “Identity”, “Detect”, “Assess”, “Protect & Prevent”. The value proposition is manifested by quicker intervention and better filtering capabilities with the ability to address emerging threats targeting children on social media.

OnlynShield automates detection with enhanced Machine Learning algorithms, provide game-based education and awareness for children to develop their cyber resilience, and assess the risk to help parents and schools doing what is right and avoiding what is wrong.
