What is OnGuard?

Are you OnGuard?

OnGuard is Netsweeper’s latest proactive monitoring system. Designed to help protect students from digital safeguarding concerns and online dangers.


OnGuard is an AI detected, human-verified digital safeguarding solution, which actively monitors all activity on supported school devices and identifies actions, taken by students, that could indicate or lead to potential risks to their wellbeing. All risks are then displayed in the onGuard dashboard in an accessible and adaptable interface, making the product extremely user-friendly and escalations easy to navigate. 

OnGuard is available as a stand-alone product, or can be joined with Netsweeper’s filtering to form an extremely advanced school filtering and monitoring system for your school or MAT. The system also works online and offline, scanning internet content, desktop content and user-submitted data in real-time, meaning you can rest assured your school is thoroughly monitored and digital safeguarded from content relating to violence, self-harm, cyberbullying, and other serious threats. 

What are the key features of onGuard?

  • Seamless integration with Netsweeper filtering
  • Real-time monitoring and reporting
  • Intuitive dashboards
  • Online and offline monitoring
  • Trend analytics

Active system monitoring

Onguard’s active system monitoring scans students’ device interactions, online or offline, to detect potential risk activity, auto-assigning categories and priorities to each captured event. Using optical character recognition to detect user activity, onGuard’s sophisticated technology can dissect text, imagery and even video content to ensure your school’s digital activity is secure.
