uKnow.com, Inc., a provider of parental intelligence systems, today announced that Protect America, a top ten provider in residential home alarm system installations, has signed on to use uKnow.com to offer a parental monitoring service. Through its enterprise platform product, uKnow.com provides organizations with the opportunity to offer a value-added service that makes parenting easier. Named Social Firefly (http://www.socialfirefly.com), Protect America’s service will help parents monitor their kids’ privacy and reputation online and protect them from digital dangers such as sexting, cyberbullying and online predators. It enables parents to have a bird's eye view of what is going on in their child's digital world so that they can keep their finger on the pulse, and when necessary, take action to protect the safety and privacy of their children.
uKnow.com’s enterprise platform product, called FamilyConnect.net™, is the only commercially available offering that merges social network, mobile phone, and location monitoring into a single parental monitoring product which can be private-labeled by companies. Using FamilyConnect.net, direct selling organizations, desktop security providers, home security providers, Internet service providers, financial institutions, wholesale club stores, and more can offer a value-added service without the need to invest in additional infrastructure. FamilyConnect.net™ allows organizations to do more than simply show parents the messages their kids are sending and receiving online. Instead, the service takes the vast amount of data available about a child on social networks and on the mobile phone and translates it so a parent can quickly and easily understand it.
uKnow.com can power the front-end of any organization’s website, all subscription management, billing, payment processing, reporting, analytics and technical support.
“We are extremely excited to add Protect America – one of the premier players in the home security market – to our growing roster of enterprise clients,” said Tim Woda, co-founder and SVP of Strategic Growth, uKnow.com. “Our FamilyConnect.net™ platform is a pioneer in the industry because it offers any organization the ability to supply their customers with the most comprehensive parental intelligence technology available with minimum cost and effort. The organization can gain an additional revenue stream, strengthen their brand and create value for their customers while parents gain some peace of mind. It’s a win-win for all involved.”
