Protect your children online using Sentry's line of safety software.

Ensuring the safety of our children as they access the Internet can be a daunting task for parents and guardians. Between having to work and raise a household or being in charge of a large group of children at schools and libraries, there is only so much that any one person is capable of doing. Available to the public are various hardware and software solutions that, while not a replacement for human involvement, can provide much needed assistance towards increasing the safety of the online environment for kids. Yet, even then attempting to gauge the reliability and effectiveness of the various products on the open market would be a monumental task in itself. There are hundreds of hardware and software “solutions” that perform distinct (and similar) functions and without a technical background their true effectiveness can not reasonably be discerned. The Child Abuse unit has spent a considerable amount of time product testing a variety of hardware and software packages – testing their assortment of functions. We have established an opinion on a select few that we feel provide the most effective means of safeguarding the online environment.
