(PRWEB) October 14, 2004
With the increasing usage of Internet at schools and homes, the minds of children, who are considered to be the developers of upcoming society are becoming more vulnerable to the malicious intentions of people trying to spread hatred, pornography and crime through Internet. The statistics are horrifying:
Â·1 out of 5 kids were solicited for sex on the Internet,
Â·1 out of 4 children were sent pictures of people who were naked or having sex,
Â·50 percent of people have made phone calls to someone they chatted with online,
Â·Nine out of 10 children aged between eight and 16 have viewed pornography on the Internet. In most cases, the sex sites were accessed unintentionally when a child, often in the process of doing homework, used a seemingly innocent sounding word to search for information or pictures. (London School of Economics January 2002)
Â· 25 million Americans visit cyber-sex sites between 1-10 hours per week. (MSNBC/Stanford/Duquesne Study, Washington Times 1/26/ 00)
Â·Over $10-Billion spent on porn annually. (Larger than NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball combined)
ÂUnderstanding our social responsibility, we have released security software which ensures the security of children using Internet at both home as well as educational institutesÂ, said Govind Rammurthy-CEO and MD- MicroWorld. ÂOur products eScan and MailScan ensure the security of Internet users not only from viruses but also from new generation threats like pornography, hacking, spamming etc which are emerging as potential threats of third generation. The cyber criminals today are shrewd enough to play new tricks through which they can take an entry into your system but our Automatic Daily Internet Updates ensure that the user stays in a highly secured zone with eScan on his desktopsÂ, said Rammurthy.
Some of the features offered by eScan are:
Â·Real time Antivirus,
Â·Real time Content security,
