There has been significant interest in incorporating NetClean’s solutions in corporations’ overall CSR and ethics projects. One of drivers is the United Nations Sustainability Goals that target the safeguarding of children. NetClean’s solutions are already used in major corporations in South Africa to safeguard and prevent illegal images from being handled on company assets, and the reporting structure to SAPS (South African Police Service) is in place.

Credence Security and NetClean have a long-running partnership, reaching out to the market in Africa, and Lauren Wain at Credence Security is a great spokesperson for using technology to tackle child sexual abuse in this part of the world.
