MEDIA, PA (PRWEB) October 4, 2006
Guardware LLC today announced that Austin State School, a residential facility for persons with mental retardation, will implement Guardware’s iShield software solution to monitor, identify, block and deter the display of pornography on student computers.
Austin State School selected iShield for its high rate of accuracy in blocking offensive images online. With more than 400 residents, the school is committed to providing Internet access on its campus but has had difficulty finding the right software to protect students from pornographic content.
“We receive many of our computers secondhand, and we don’t have a large budget for software additions,” said Patricia Westfall, residential services coordinator for Austin State School. “We tested iShield many times, and it worked without fail. It was also a cost-effective solution for us because there are no ongoing yearly fees and software updates are free.”
“iShield combines text analysis with sophisticated image detection technology designed to block pornographic material at the point of display,” said Joe Waldron, Managing Director of Guardware. “It is the perfect solution in an educational environment like Austin State School because iShield blocks pornographic images selectively instead of walling off entire Web pages. We are pleased that the school selected iShield to protect their students from adult viewing adult content. ”
Guardware is a software solution provider committed to developing and marketing innovative personal computer applications that improve productivity and security. Guardware’s products have received numerous awards as well as strong press reviews from technology publications like PC Magazine. The company offers a full suite of pornography protection systems: iShield™ blocks pornography in web browsers, iShield Plus™ blocks pornography from all sources (web browsers, email, CD, DVD) and ScreenShield™Enterprise provides network-wide administration and protection from pornography.
