Impero Software has announced the launch of a new cloud-based product portfolio comprised of three core modules – EdTeach, EdProtect and EdAdmin. This new cloud version of Impero Education Pro (version C1.1), available on a SaaS basis, includes an enhanced web interface to provide schools with intuitive, simple navigation.
“At Impero Software, we strive to make sure we are meeting the evolving needs of school districts and providing them with the most secure way to manage their school networks, engage students and enhance student safety and well-being,” says Richard Fuller, CEO of Impero Software. “Hosting our software in the cloud offers improved data security and means that our software is always running with the latest updates. The new cloud solution will be available to new and existing customer on a SaaS basis.”

Impero Education Pro combines three core modules into a single user interface designed to offer schools and districts classroom management, network management and student online safety. It provides intelligent search functionality, intuitive navigation and integration with other Impero products. The three modules are:
- Impero EdTeach provides multi-device monitoring, including the ability to remotely view, manage and control devices such as Chromebooks, Windows, Mac and iOS to support schools with 1:1 programs. Teachers can monitor students’ screens in real time, share content with students, and control or lock student devices to keep students focused.
- Impero EdProtect for student safety allows counselors, teachers or administrators to receive real-time alerts if students type or search for keywords and phrases that may indicate concerns around bullying, self-harm, suicide, mental health and more. Screenshots and video recordings of these captures provide contextual insight so schools can provide counter narratives, support, and can intervene before an incident escalates.
- Impero EdAdmin for network management allows schools to remotely track, monitor, and manage resources across a school network, remotely reset passwords, and set computers to power on or off at certain times.
In addition, Impero recently announced the launch of EdAware, a next-generation digital student safety solution. Schools use Impero EdAware to record, analyze and store multiple types of student safety information, from depressive episodes to risky online behavior, to help identify potential safety risks and enable informed counseling sessions, behavior management conversations and safeguarding interventions. Impero EdAware integrates with the Impero EdProtect module, making it a comprehensive safeguarding solution for both online and offline safety concerns.
