Vericept Teams with Expert to Create Grant Template to Aid Schools in Obtaining Federal Funding for Security in Schools

Vericept Corporation, the leading provider of risk management solutions, today announced it is currently teaming with expert Nancy Willard, executive director of the Center for Safe and Responsible Internet Use, to create a grant template to aid schools in obtaining federal funding for use of Vericept's technology, through the Safe and Drug Free Schools program. Vericept enables "virtual adult supervision" of student Internet, e-mail and network use through its Vericept Intelligence Platform. Monitoring thousands of schools across the country, Vericept's solution identifies instances of network misuse by children, such as cyber bullying, visits to Web sites that provide potentially dangerous information, online drug dealing and e-mail dialogues threatening violent acts - providing school staff with the tools and information they need to deter and prevent potentially harmful behavior.
