NetSupport Announces Education Updates

NetSupport announce the latest updates to three key areas of its education solutions – school IT Management, student internet safety and classroom management.

Extended features in version 4.7 include enhanced software distribution, endpoint security with encrypted drives, user tracking, custom searches, enhanced device inventory, centralized remote management and much more. Alongside the existing Windows, Mac, iOS and Chrome support, NetSupport DNA now includes the ability to monitor and gather inventories from Android devices and display panels. In addition, there is greater platform support for deployment within MDM devices, plus extra security options.

NetSupport uses key components of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to utilize ‘CI’ – Contextual Intelligence – in a new module that delivers a Risk Index for keywords triggered by students. The Risk Index automatically assesses the context and history of a child’s activities; whether they are vulnerable; what device they’re on; the time of day; which websites they’re visiting and other factors to create a numerical risk indicator when a keyword is triggered.

Within the classroom, NetSupport School extends its capabilities with a range of platform enhancements. These include a new unified Classroom and internet safety app for iOS, a new ‘universal’ Student app available from the Windows 10 Store, as well as extended support for Chromebooks. To further streamline the start of lessons in a BYOD environment or when laptop carts are used, integration with leading Student Information Systems is now included to automatically provide the expected list of students for the start of each lesson.
