April 13, 2017 by  

A Reading firm which aspires to keep children safe online has recently received recognition.

SafeToNet, which is based in Reading, has been given the title of Britain’s Best Mobile Start-up this year. The competition was hosted by the Tech Growth division of KPMG. Newsletter printing in Reading might be used to celebrate the achievement.

The London-based leader of Tech Growth, Dr Patrick Imbach, declared:

“SafeToNet is a worthy winner with a great purpose and addressing a real problem. This is a hugely exciting business who stood out from the crowd in doing something really innovative and different.”

Dr Imbach suggested that the organisation is a fine representative of the UK’s important start-up community. He added that British start-ups are consistently achieving great results.

SafeToNet is a family firm, established by the Purseys. It is located within Queen Victoria Street. By blocking harmful content in real time, it has the power to help protect those children who use social media sites.

The technology does not facilitate snooping on the conversations of children by others. However, it can stop outgoing messages which would be unsafe because of their inappropriate nature. Furthermore, it has the potential to block incoming communication from trolls.

The chief executive of SafeToNet, Richard Pursey, was a recent winner at the Pride of Reading Awards. He secured the title of Entrepreneur of the Year during 2016.
