Top BT Innovation Award for LEO Member SafeToNet
SafeToNet, a company that’s developed an application that safeguards children and families from cyber abuse, cyber-bullying, trolling and predatory risk across social networks, has been awarded first prize for innovation by BT’s consumer mobile business division following a tough multi-stage evaluation process.
The application blocks harmful content before it is seen thanks to a complex algorithm that combines and harnesses behaviour patterning, sentiment analysis and other unique processes that protect recipients against a multitude of potential malevolent activities.
EE and BT product and technology teams will now work with SafeToNet to evaluate their technology and support their development roadmap, as well as exploring opportunities to work together commercially
Founder of Safetonet, Richard Pursey heard about the competition via Leading Edge Only’s global innovation marketplace platform, which enables innovation providers to showcase their technologies and products to a wide array of organisations seeking cutting-edge solutions.
Richard Pursey, said: “I can’t thank Leading Edge Only enough for introducing us to the BT competition. It is simply fantastic. Because of Leading Edge Only, and now with the backing of BT and EE, we will be safeguarding millions of children on social networks. The impact on our company and the exposure and success we have gained is far beyond our expectations!”
Scott Sharp, CEO and Founder of Leading Edge Only said, “I’m delighted for Safetonet’s success and this once again validates the need for our platform, to create a marketplace for those organisations seeking the latest innovative solutions and those providing them.”
