With the growing number of Mac users, protection for Macs a natural step

SALT LAKE CITY - August 11, 2008 - Award-winning Internet filtering and parental control software vendor, ContentWatch, today announced the release of Net Nanny for Mac. With the introduction of an Apple Computer-compatible product, Net Nanny is now able to protect both Windows and Mac users.

With Net Nanny for Mac, users can protect their computers and safeguard their children from unwanted Internet content.

"Mac users can expect the same level of quality protection, customer service and Internet filtering that has become synonymous with Net Nanny, which has made it the most-trusted brand and top-rated technology for client-based Internet filters on the market."

Net Nanny for Mac enhances and complements the existing parental controls already found in Mac OS X Leopard, but provides a further lever of protection. Net Nanny for Mac is also compatible with earlier versions of the Mac operating system and will be available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Japanese.
