Saasyan Assure Overview

Featured image (1)

Assure is Saasyan’s flagship AI-Powered Online Student Safety solution, enabling schools with flexible cybersecurity controls for k-12 classrooms, advanced alerting of cyberbullying & self-harm, and easy reporting of student online activities.

Leveraging Technologies Already Used By Schools

Saasyan Architecture (6)

A completely cloud-based solution, Saasyan integrates with and leverages data from best-in-class technologies already deployed by schools including integration with identity management, collaboration tools, next-generation firewalls, and learning management systems.

The Saasyan solution is comprised of APIs and microservices and does not require any agents to be installed on individual devices.

This solution architecture makes Saasyan cost effective, quick to set up, requires no maintenance by IT teams and delivers immediate value.

Data Privacy and Security

Saasyan is committed to protecting the privacy of customers and their students' data collected via Assure.

Data Encryption

To keep data secure in transit, all data is encrypted in transit using TLS.

This includes the communication between the Assure Collector VM/Assure Agent and the Assure SaaS cloud.

To keep your data secure at rest, Assure encrypts each block using hardware-accelerated AES-256 as it is written to disk.

This takes place at a low level in the I/O subsystem, which encrypts everything written to disk, including intermediate query results.

The blocks are backed up as is, which means that backups are encrypted as well. Encryption keys are managed using AWS KMS.

User and Service Credentials

User credentials are not provisioned/stored in Saasyan Assure.

Assure solely relies on the school’s/department’s/district's IDP for authentication and authorization purposes.

The protocols supported are LDAPS and SAML v2.

Application/service credentials are stored in AWS KMS and are accessible only to the microservices that require them.

Flexible Cybersecurity Controls For K-12 Classrooms

Firewall rules override

Integrating with next-generation firewalls via API, Saasyan provides flexible cybersecurity controls for K-12 classrooms.

Teachers and IT teams are able to create on-demand, scheduled or recurring rules, that temporarily or permanently allow or deny specific web pages, web categories, or applications for a class, a student, or several specific students.

Further, these cybersecurity controls for the classroom are embedded into popular learning management systems via API, providing a seamless user experience for educators and students.

This function massively reduces workloads on IT, improves student engagement and ensures a safe and frictionless learning experience.

Advanced Alerting of Cyberbullying & Self-Harm

Create Alerts

Monitoring all online activities on the school network including chat, email, search, website, social posts, videos, images and documents, Saasyan applies advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning functions to detect cyberbullying and self-harm.

When any harmful content is identified, contextual alerts are sent directly to a custom-set list of IT/Security admins, teachers, or counsellors.

This function also helps schools in the US, to comply with CIPA (Children’s Internet Protection Act).

Scheduled reports

Scheduled reports

Saasyan’s reporting is designed for ease-of-use by teachers, wellbeing professionals and IT.

The in-built powerful querying and reporting function supports standard scheduled reports or custom on-demand reports.

Saasyan’s standard solution maintains 12 months of rolling data and has options for archiving historical data.

This function also helps schools in the US, to comply with FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act).

Multi-School Controls & Reporting For School Districts and State Department Of Education

Assure Central

Saasyan provides a multi-school control and reporting function, enabling School Districts and State Departments of Education with policy-driven controls and configurations for: classroom cybersecurity settings; standard classifications and alerting of cyberbullying and self-harm; and consolidated reporting and analytics across states, districts and regions.

Wellbeing Alerts Email for School Leaders & Counsellors (Daily or Immediate)

Cyberbullying & Self-Harm Alerts

Applied Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning (AI/ML)

Crowdsourced words and phrases

The Saasyan solution is powered by artificial intelligence and applied intelligence to help schools keep 'one step ahead' of students.

Here are 5 applications of our 'applied intelligence' in the Saasyan solution:

  1. Crowd-sourced 'word & phrases' dictionary
    Saasyan's 600+ school customers who among them are responsible for 400,000 students have the option to share (crowd-source) the trending and emerging words and phrases they wish to monitor and report.  When one school adds a phrase, 599 other schools are empowered.

  2. Fuzzy logic & near-term analysis for misspelt words
    We acknowledge kids are smart. Our 'fuzzy logic and near-term' AI function looks for words that have been purposely or accidentally misspelt. This means schools don't have to take on the burden of precisely defining every misspelling of every word and phrase that needs to tracked.

  3. Natural Language Processing to pick up context
    It always comes down to context. Our Natural Language Processing AI function ensures we don't report a 'false positive' when a student posts "I killed the switch" but does raise an alert when one kid writes to another "You're not funny, stop posting".

  4. Cohort analysis to identify outliers
    By comparing individual activities to those of their cohort, the Saasyan solution is able to identify true outliers for alerting and reporting. For example it knows to not raise an alert when the entire Year 9 Science class is searching for 'drugs' on Wednesday during Period 3 but does raise an alert when one student is searching 'how long will I be imprisoned for selling drugs' on Thursday right after school.

  5. Recurrence analysis to detect alarming patterns
    Students' online activities, when analysed can reveal 'intent' and 'state of mind'. The 'Recurrence Analysis' function in the Saasyan solution creates a 'high priority' alert when it detects alarming patterns. For example a student has visited the 'suicide hotline website' 5 times in the past 4 hours. 

Google Workspace Google Chat & Gmail (Monitor & Alert)
