Keeping your children safe with Net Nanny - The Wall Street Journal


Perhaps the best tool parents can use to prevent their children from Internet danger is communication. Even then, though, software is often a necessary first line of defense. As quoted by The Wall Street Journal, "The first thing I found was that software programs like Net Nanny, which aim to filter inappropriate content, are still a good first line of defense. Their text-based filters can alert you when your child gets an instant message soliciting sex or asking if his parents are at home."

ContentProtect Security Appliance Awarded GCN Reviewers Choice Award - GCN (Government Computer News)


We are pleased to announce that our ContentProtect Security Appliance was recently tested with 5 other Web content filtering appliances and came out on top. From the article: "The ContentProtect (CP) 100 from ContentWatch is a combination security appliance that includes bandwidth management, antivirus and spyware applications, and peer-to-peer control in addition to Web filtering. All of this comes in one box that is easy to use and not too hard on the budget... We were pleased with the precision with which it handled our tricky Web site list. It was not fooled by any of the potential false positives and managed to stop nearly everything else. It even blocked a Java-based program from connecting to play online board games, which no other appliance in the review managed to do."

Top Security Companies Align to Support Consumer Launch of Windows Vista - Microsoft


Anti-virus and family safety solutions bolster built-in security of newest version of Windows

REDMOND, Wash. - January 17, 2007 - Microsoft Corp. today announced that leading security providers are committing to delivering fully tested and compatible versions of their consumer and small-business security solutions by Jan. 30, when the Windows VistaTM operating system becomes generally available on new PCs and in retail stores around the world. In addition, today many independent software vendors pledged to deliver a wide range of innovative applications and services designed to further enable safer online experiences for families and home users in time for the consumer launch.

Throughout the development of Windows Vista, Microsoft has worked closely with security partners to provide technical support resources, access to application testing and compatibility labs, and developer training and certification programs. These efforts help industry partners provide consumers with numerous security and safety software and services to choose from to help make their computing experiences safer from the moment they begin using Windows Vista.

"A more secure computing experience, including protection from online threats, viruses and hackers, is more important than ever before, for businesses and consumers alike," said Ben Fathi, corporate vice president of the Security Technology Unit at Microsoft. "Windows Vista is the most secure operating system we've ever built, and our security partners continue to play a vital role in adding layers of protection onto the Microsoft(R) Windows(R) platform. With all of us working together, we can help people feel safer and more confident when using their PCs."

Windows Vista is built to provide in-depth defense against existing and emerging digital threats. Microsoft started by designing Windows Vista using the Security Development Lifecycle, an education, design and testing process that helps minimize security bugs in the operating system's underlying code. New built-in security features such as Windows Defender, User Account Control, an improved Windows Firewall, Parental Controls, and Windows Internet Explorer(R) 7 Protected Mode and Phishing Filter provide additional layers of protection. Microsoft's industry partners add the final layer by building security solutions on top of the Windows platform. Partner security offerings that are scheduled to be available on Jan. 30 include a range of anti-virus, anti-malware and family safety solutions.

Companies committing to the availability of consumer and small-business security solutions for Windows Vista by Jan. 30 include these:
