What is NetSupport DNA?

This easy-to-use solution provides schools and Trusts with the tools to manage technology across all platforms in the classroom and across the school, while safeguarding students and assisting with GDPR compliancy. Network Managers, Safeguarding Leads and Teachers all benefit from dedicated toolkits allowing them to achieve best practice. Try free for 30 days via our website.

IT Managers - Easy to install and use, NetSupport DNA offers a wealth of network and IT management tools for network managers to track, monitor and manage IT assets and endpoints across a school or entire Trust – all from one central point. Armed with a complete overview of school IT activity, technicians can work smarter, whilst maintaining a secure and reliable network. From staying ahead of any potential IT issues before they escalate, to automating tasks, NetSupport DNA not only helps save time but also boosts security and productivity. It also gathers a wealth of device and usage data to inform decision making and allow accurate planning of future IT spending and refresh plans.

Safeguarding Leads - Designed to be operated independently of the IT team, NetSupport DNA’s safeguarding toolkit provides both proactive and reactive tools such as keyword monitoring, internet metering, ‘Report a Concern’, risk index, and more - to identify vulnerable students; prevent students being exposed to inappropriate online content and track safeguarding topics.

Teachers - Meanwhile, teachers can access dedicated assessment, monitoring, collaboration and control features via its classroom management tools (Optional NetSupport School), to help maintain students’ focus and improve the efficiency of technology-led teaching and learning.
