AI Startup Securly Locks Down $16M in Series B

Dec 18, 2018

FUNDING SECURED: Securly, a San Jose, Calif.-based startup that aims to promote online student safety, has raised $16 million in a Series B round led by Defy Partners, according to Forbes.

Securly founders launched the company in 2013 with a web filtering tool designed to keep kids safe online. In 2017 it released another product, called Auditor, that uses artificial intelligence to detect language in Gmail that could qualify as cyberbullying or suggest self-harm. The company claims this technology could play a role in preempting the next school shooting.

To date, Securly has raised $24 million and claims to have reached 10 million students across 2,000 paying school districts.
