News: K-12 cyber safety provider acquires parent controls

May 17, 2022

The following article preview was originally published on EdWeek, a data and news organization that has provided thorough and thoughtful analysis of K-12 policies, practice, and research for nearly 40 years.

Linewize, a cyber safety management system for schools, acquired parent controls provider, Qustodio, for $52 million.

The acquisition, which included 100 percent of Qustodio’s shares and subsidiaries, will allow Linewize to “further its vision of delivering an all-encompassing student safety ecosystem,” according to the announcement.

Qustodio, based in Spain and founded in 2012, offers cross-platform technology designed to help students, parents, and educators balance screen time, block harmful content, and promote healthier online activity.

This is the fourth major acquisition for Linewize, and parent company Family Zone, this year. In March, the company acquired a web filter and firewall dedicated to educators, Cipafilter.

Linewize reports serving more than 11 million students globally.
