In this rough economy, we don’t want parents to forgo their child’s safety online because of family finance issues... So we’re offering a huge discount on PC Pandora and extending the LIVE! service free trial period.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) August 23, 2011
It’s official: school is back in session. While retailers are slashing prices on new PCs to entice parents to make the big purchase for the kids, Pandora corp. co-founder James Leasure is urging parents to protect those new machines. For a limited time, the company is offering their flagship monitoring software at half price and extending the free trial of their subscription-based add-on service as a back-to-school promotion.
“For as much good as a new PC can do for a child during the school year, parents must understand this very powerful technology they are placing in very young hands,” says Leasure. “You must have tools in place that monitor how your child is utilizing their new connection to the world.”
Pandora Corp. is the maker of PC Pandora computer monitoring software. The program records all activity, both on and offline, through detailed screen captures and data logs. Parents are able to get full details on who their kids are talking to, how they are spending their time online, what programs they are using, what websites they are visiting, and much more. Rather than relying on keyword content scanning on social networks, PC Pandora gives parents full knowledge of what their kids are doing so they can be absolutely certain they are safe.
PROTECTION FROM ANYWHERE
While PC Pandora’s built-in IRIS feature sends email updates and alerts on PC activity to busy parents at work, it’s the PC Pandora LIVE! service that really gives parents an edge. The subscription-based add-on lets parents view their child’s activity and make changes to parental controls from anywhere they can access the Internet, including most smartphones.
“The LIVE! service lets you view screenshots of recorded activity, something that is not featured in the IRIS updates,” says Leasure. “It also allows you to make changes to the parental controls. For example, if your child has found a new pornography website that slips through the filters you have set up, you will see them visiting the site and can make immediate changes to blacklist the site.”
BACK-TO-SCHOOL SPECIAL OFFER
As a special back-to-school promotion, Pandora Corp. is offering the PC Pandora software at 50% off the regularly discounted price, plus a free month of the PC Pandora LIVE! service.
“In this rough economy, we don’t want parents to forgo their child’s safety online because of family finance issues,” says Leasure. “We want to give parents the best tools available to keep their kids safe online, so we’re offering a huge discount on PC Pandora and extending the LIVE! service free trial period. It’s going to give parents a major jump on keeping up with the new computer and Internet activity that their kids are sure to dive into.”
Leasure says the PC Pandora computer monitoring software can be used to keep kids safe from one of the biggest threats they face online that often stems directly from peers at school: cyberbullying.
END CYBERBULLYING NOW
Over the summer, several states and many school districts have updated laws and policies on cyberbullying:
- Virginia made cyberbullying a Class 1 misdemeanor
- Arkansas made cyberbullying a Class B misdemeanor
- California’s bill AB 746 updated an existing law to include cyberbullying as a punishable offense by the school
- Both Connecticut and Rhode Island passed laws that require their respective state’s Board of Education to adopt clear-cut policies to prevent cyberbullying and punish aggressors
- A new law in Tennessee expanded the state’s harassment laws to include cyberbullying. But the bill’s vague wording is causing a stir with First Amendment lawyers.
Leasure is urging parents to do their own research into any laws that may have changed in their area.
“Parents should be doing their research to see what state laws and school district policies have been updated so they can be aware of what tools are available should their child be a victim of a cyberbully,” he says. “It’s also a good idea to know what punishment waits should your child becomes an aggressor.”
Monitoring software can play a large role in ending the cyberbullying epidemic by letting parents know exactly what their young surfers are doing online; parents will see first-hand how their children are interacting with others. If a child is being bullied, parents will have records and information they can use to help put an end to the situation before it gets worse. But it can also work on the flip-side, when a parent may have a bully in their house.
Says Leasure: “In some situations, PC Pandora might reveal that a child is the aggressor or a participant in bullying others. If that is the case, parents will have the information needed to sit down and talk to their child. They can put an end to the behavior before schools or law enforcement get involved, or before the situation spirals out of control and leads to a tragic incident that stays with them forever.”
