Sprint Nextel Relies on ContentWatch Products for Internet Filtering
Award-winning solutions block inappropriate content in retail stores
SALT LAKE CITY - May 10, 2011 - ContentWatch, Inc. (www.contentwatch.com), the leading provider of parental control and Internet filtering solutions, announced today that Sprint Nextel Corporation (NYSE:S) uses ContentProtect Pro on employee and demo desktop computers and Net Nanny for Android on tablets in its retail stores to prevent intentional and accidental exposure to inappropriate content on mobile display devices and employee PCs.
The business class Internet filtering solutions protect Sprint Nextel from potential liability and from upsetting customers. The solution stops employee cyberslacking by preventing Internet access to non-business related sites and also provides usage reports for management review.
"In over 1,000 Sprint Nextel retail locations, we have thousands of computers and tablets that access the Internet," said Fared Adib, Sprint Nextel vice president for device operations. "ContentProtect Pro has kept those devices from exposing us and our customers to inappropriate content. ContentWatch's new award-winning mobile application protects even Android tablets."
The two ContentWatch solutions provide several key benefits, such as:
- Productivity - limiting cyberslacking through monitoring and blocking Internet usage, including use of proxy-sites
- Security - reducing malicious apps and viruses that reside on company-inappropriate web pages
- Liability - masking profanity and preventing inappropriate web pages from being viewed on company-owned assets
"Internet filtering on computers and mobile devices is vital in a world where employees easily access inappropriate Web sites or spend inordinate amounts of time doing non-work-related web surfing," said Russ Warner, CEO of ContentWatch. "Filtering computers, tablets and smartphones is simply smart business."
ContentWatch's Android solution will be available to consumers and businesses this summer. In addition to content filtering, the mobile product strategy includes threat management and productivity tools for consumers, businesses, carriers and retail outlets. The desktop solution is currently available through www.contentwatch.com.
