Pearl Software aligns offering with Microsoft’s product road-map.

Pearl Software announced the release of its latest Employee Internet monitoring and filtering products today. Version 11 of the Pearl Echo product line includes features and full support for Microsoft’s Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 operating systems. In addition to working in the traditional desktop mode, Pearl Echo Version 11 supports management of Internet activity in the Windows 8 tile mode, without requiring added configuration of modifications by the end user. Like its predecessor versions, Pearl Echo runs quietly in the background, allowing organizations to monitor and filter end-user Internet activity without degrading system or Internet performance. The software operates at a level that alleviates concern about which Web browser a user prefers.    

“When we invented real-time remote Internet monitoring and control, we endeavored to build Pearl Echo on a solid design foundation. That foundation has served our customers well for many years,” said Pearl Software CTO, Joe Field. “With the release of Version 11, we’ve enhanced that foundation in order to be able to move in the direction planned by Microsoft for its operating systems while providing a mechanism for Pearl Software to add features and capabilities required by our customers.”

Pearl Echo filters and monitors a variety of Internet activities including e-mail, IM, chat, news, the transferring of files and Web browsing. After completing a very successful BETA test release, Pearl Echo now offers new capabilities including Echo Noise Reduction™ for more targeted usage reporting, added data security, stricter blocking capabilities and enhancements in administrative usability. The software's patented mobility technology is an ideal tool for organizations that require their policies to be enforced on or off their private network or that need user-level control in a Terminal Server, Citrix, Remote Desktop or Bring-Your-Own-Device environment.
