NetSupport DNA provides educators, technicians, and counselors with their own dedicated solution to manage all classroom devices and school-wide IT assets, while identifying vulnerable students.

In addition to providing teachers with tools to interact and collaborate with student devices, IT staff can centrally manage and support IT assets and endpoints across a school- or district-wide network. Powerful student eSafety features help support counselors in proactively identifying and protecting vulnerable students via internet metering, keyword/phrase monitoring, webcam controls, report a concern, risk index, plus more. NetSupport DNA provides a complete toolkit for successful IT management while promoting positive digital citizenship and protecting students.
