NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- STOP!T is a comprehensive software and services solution that mitigates, deters and controls cyber-abuse in schools, universities, the workplace and beyond. STOP!T is announcing today its entrance into several New York schools including Bronx-based Peace and Diversity Academy, Westchester Square Academy and The Child School on Roosevelt Island.
The user experience is highlighted by the STOP!T app, which empowers students to anonymously report cyber-abuse to trusted adults and school administrators. The STOP!T school program also includes DOCUMENTit, the cloud-based incident management system for administrators. Additionally STOP!T provides students access to a 24/7/365 talk and text crisis center. STOP!T also provides CyberSafe Rallies and other inspirational, educational and community building tools and services.
STOP!T released its beta product in February 2014 and is now available nationally. More than 50 schools have chosen STOP!T to make a difference helping to protect more than 20,000 students. New York schools have been seeking a solution since cyberbullying laws were brought to the forefront earlier this year, when the New York State Court of Appeals held Albany County's cyberbullying law to be in violation of the First Amendment, and thus invalid.
"With Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Yik Yak, Ask.FM, and other social media platforms continuing to grow, it's becoming easier for children to be cyber-abused. Schools are taking notice, and seeking tools that empower their students to stay safe online and on social media," said Todd Schobel, President & CEO of STOP!T. "We're very pleased with the adoption we've had within schools and look forward to further expansion within the New York market and beyond."
