November 6, 2018

PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2018--Kudos&Co. Inc., a company that is leading the movement for safer sharing experiences for kids, now has video! With Kudos, kids eight and up can now share video, view and add fun pictures, make reactions and share positive comments while learning to be good digital citizens in an environment designed specifically for them. Video on Kudos allows kids to upload or capture ten-second videos to share on the service with select friends or in groups.

Recognizing that kids want to share their creations and opinions with their friends, Kudos adopted the mission of building a platform which provides them with the positive aspects of social sharing while protecting them from undesirable elements. In addition to parent moderation, a team of round-the-clock professionally trained moderators and AI/Machine learning systems, Kudos&Co. has most recently formed a partnership with Hoplite Industries, a leading cyber security company, to automate and simplify many facets of threat detection. Hoplite has built its business to protect digital users from the “bad guys” and cares deeply about ensuring environments like Kudos have the protection necessary to provide a safer digital experience.

“We are delighted to unveil the latest video feature and are dedicated to bringing new experiences and fun features that are driven by our users’ interests. Adding video introduces more ways in which kids can create, connect and share with other kids around the world,” said Sumi Lim, Chief Operating Officer of Kudos&Co. “Innovation and safety go hand-in-hand at Kudos, and as such, we are pleased to partner with Hoplite, a serious player in the threat detection space. Our collaboration with them will provide an extra seal of protection for children’s safety in Kudos.”

Hoplite is recognized for its artificial intelligence and behavior-based technologies, allowing customers and partners to substantially harden their defenses, ensuring business operations are sustained at the highest level of effectiveness.

Kudos is a free app available for download in the App Store and on Google Play. The app requires parental consent for use and posting, giving parents peace of mind, as well as updates on their child’s activity.
