    Securus

    Has anybody heard of the above company seem to offer a program that captures "ILLEGAL" activity on network and reports back to a central console, showing screen shots etc. I presume it will need client software on each workstation? Judging by the list and type of clients must be fairly well thought of.

    Lots of posts there about it. We use the hardware version here, and it works well. Yes, it needs a client, but it can be deployed via GP with an MSI.

    I've just caught a £100 drugs (well, weed) deal taking place between students, using email, thanks to Securus!

    hi paul,
    We've got a securus box set up accross the field if you want to pop over and have a look you can do! works well there is a client that goes on the pc's but it is really small and in msi format already so its easy to push out!

    @stewartknight
    we've caught a few cases of bullying and that but nothing as exciting as that!

    Re: Securus

    @Ric_: My asterisk box filters most of my calls prity well I think they must have got fed up with trying as they have sent me aload of blurb via snail mail! Was just wondering what it was like as there is a load of blurb but not much substance.

    @Kris: I wouldn't mind a quick look, I'm not in school next week so I wouldn't be able to come over until week after.

    @Paul
    Contact them direct if you want a demo unit - they're helpful and there is no hard sell if you deal directly with Securus... don't know about resellers mind

    ...and what's an asterisk box?

    Re: Securus

    I had a trial unit last year and it was a good product just a little out of our price range at the time.

    I would have considered it this year but the sales guy i seem to have been assigned has been incredibally impatient and quite unpleasant at times towards myself and some of our staff.

    As this has been my first and only point of contact with the company I will be giving them a wide birth which is unfortunate all round.

    Anyway back to the big battle with RIPrep.

    Re: Securus

    Stewart, thanks, I may take you up on that sometime in the future. At the minute I'm just too busy with trying to sort out the rest of the network to worry about it. I just saw the thread and thought i'd have a quick rant

    I will however send a quick email to securus if he manages to agrivate anyone else in the building =)

    Re: Securus

    We have just tried the unit on our network and yes it has very good potential. Only thing that we encountered was quite a few false positives but i think with a little fine tuning would be a great tool to have in your "catch the students at it arsenal".

    The cost was far too much for our School i.e £6000 over 3 years.

    Scruff, notice you're in Lincs. I am the Service Manager/Business Manager at a school in Lincs. We have the MD of Securus up here quite often, he's a top bloke, enough in fact that we've just gone into formal partnership with the company. Happy to put you in touch with him directly, you won't regret it.

    Cheers
