ContentProtect Professional Suite combines highly effective Web Filtering, Spam, and Pop-up control tools for small businesses, libraries, government, and education.

Salt Lake City, Utah – December 15, 2003 – ContentWatch Inc., a trusted Internet protection solutions provider, today released ContentProtect Professional Suite. Already one of the most accurate and complete solutions for filtering unwanted content for consumers, ContentProtect Professional Suite is now available for small businesses, libraries, government, and education. This software system gives employers the ability to manage and control Web access, spam, instant messaging, peer-to-peer networking, and pop-ups. The product is highly customizable and permits administrators to set unique policies for the entire organization, groups, and individuals. It also includes powerful, real-time reporting tools.

ContentProtect Professional Suite is a client-based system with many customizable options. Each user or group is assigned a unique account that has adjustable filter settings and privileges so access can be tailored to different needs. The administrator and user interface is Web-based allowing for simple management and remote access. ContentProtect Professional Suite also includes a logging and reporting option for each user account, which allows administrators to view activity on a group or individual basis. Administrators can then drill down to get detailed information and reporting about Internet use or abuse.

“ContentProtect Professional Suite offers an affordable solution for businesses to help manage risk, increase productivity, and protect against legal liabilities,” said Bret Harris, chief technology officer of ContentWatch. “The design of this software makes it easy for any administrator to implement and immediately begins to provide valuable protection to employees and the company.”

ContentProtect Professional Suite is unique because of its break from traditional filtering engines. Instead of relying on rules or stagnant lists, every requested Web site, email, or pop-up is evaluated by looking at content such as images, key words, and data sources. By using this dynamic method instead of standard blacklists, filtering accuracy is increased while false positive rates are diminished. Because of its client-base design, the product provides protection for employees and assets even when computers are unplugged from the company network in the event an employee is working from home, in a remote office, or traveling. WatchWorks Professional is also compatible with anti-virus and firewall software. It is the most complete Internet protection solution for small businesses, libraries, government and education.
