Jones Day advised The Riverside Company on the deal.

Navigate360, a portfolio company of The Riverside Company, announced the acquisition of Social Sentinel, a linguistics technology company that scans and analyzes digital content to identify potential safety and security threats as well as mental health and social and emotional signals. By incorporating Social Sentinel into the Navigate360 umbrella, leaders in the education and business spheres now benefit from another powerful tool designed to help keep their students and employees safe.

Social Sentinel is the leading linguistics and AI-based software solution designed to recognize signals of potential harm found in digital conversations such as organization-owned emails and public social media posts. The platform scans selected digital content and identifies language that may indicate the research, planning and implementation of an act of violence or harm, as well as potentially dire mental health issues. This powerful technology alerts leaders if a community member is showing signs of crisis so they can intervene before an incident occurs. All the while, respecting Constitutional rights to privacy, freedom of speech and the right to assemble.

Navigate360 boldly confronts the challenges communities face by creating safe environments where they can thrive and focus on their true mission. Through technology, education and services, Navigate360 offers solutions spanning the full spectrum of safety — from prevention and preparation through response and recovery.
